I'm sure this is an old question, but I've scrolled and scrolled and seeing as this BB doesn't have search... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
So- where do you all get your raw cow/goat milk? How does one get started?<br><br>
TIA!!<br><br>

Go to <a href="http://www.realmilk.com" target="_blank">www.realmilk.com</a> and check under the "where" link for places in NY. There's also a raw dairy yahoo group you could join and ask. Yahoo groups is a great place to search for raw milk. Search for local weston a. price chapters (WAPF) too as their members would know where to find raw milk as well.<br><br>

I know this is an old topic, but I figured it still applies. I've been reading a bunch (in attempts to overhaul our lives and diets) and see there are lots of benefits to raw milk. But we live in Hawaii where it seems you can't get raw milk. What's a good substitute? FWIW, at this point, we only do organic soy milk (for cereal, baking, whatever) but I used to do organic rice milk (until we moved to Hawaii and having a hard time getting it now).

Where in WA do you live, Adrian'swife? We live in a great state for raw milk and can actually get it somewhat easily, depending on where you live. Check out the realmilk.com and look under WA, there's a huge list. If you live anywhere near Seattle you can get it at Whole Foods, or there are drop points all over for several dairies. I even have one here in Redmond (although it's not on the list yet).<br><br><br>
My condolances to the great state of Hawaii...no raw milk! I don't have any help for you, except you might want to look into your soy milk a little more. Most of us raw milk enthusiasts would think soy milk is perhaps the worst substitute for raw milk out there. I think if I couldn't get raw milk I would get pasteurized whole unhomogenized milk and then culture it.<br><br>
Take care!

We don't actually drink milk, only use it occasionally. What you just described sounds like a heck of a lot of work, and with a husband who works a ton and a high needs baby in the house, that doesn't sound doable for me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
Any other alternatives? I've never been crazy about soy milk, but you know, nothing seems okay anymore.

Wow, are their NO dairy farms in Hawaii--even small family farms? I remember a few ranches while I was there but I wasn't exactly looking for dairy farms. If you think there might be some (or can get the word out that you are looking), maybe you could call one (better yet, stop by with kiddos) and get to know them and ask if you could by a gallon or two of raw milk from them before they pasturize it or ship it off. I bet in Hawaii, any dairy cows would be grazing in pasture year round--therefore having the most nutritious, scrumptious milk <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy"><br><br>
On another note, I wouldn't consider soy milk a good alternative. Unfermented soy has been linked to disease (like thyroid disorders).
