Calling All Milk Lovers

Real Milk isn’t *Lowfat* or 2%

Anyone been eating any cookies in the last week or so?  Yeah, me too.  An nothing goes with cookies like a glass of milk.  And just like men, all milk is created equal; the key word here is created. After milk is created, it is handled VERY differently.  Before milk leaves the farm, it is called raw milk.


If you check out the link (above) you can find information on where raw milk is available. In light of the new “Food Safety” bill, READ ALL ABOUT IT! you may want to do this sooner than later, as the food nazis may make it impossible to legally drink raw milk in the future. (It may already not be legal in your area, please check)

What I want you to know, dear reader, is that raw milk is sitting in big, stainless steel tanks on dairy farms all over this fruited plain.  A tank truck will arrive and the raw milk will be transferred to it, whence it be transported to a processing plant.  The farmer is paid according to the quality and the fat content of the milk (higher fat=higher price).  So why does the grocery store sell us 2% or other “lowfat” alternatives, if the fat content is of premium value?

Quick-go out and get you some!

If you are lucky enough to find a dairy farm in your neck of the woods, willing to “fill a jug or two” for some of your federal reserve notes (frn’s), and their milk is like 16% milkfat, you will probably want to shake the jug before you pour a glass. You will probably want to also go easy at first, to make sure your stomach doesn’t freak out on you.  I remember the first time I tried raw milk, my taste buds were doing back-flips, and cartwheels, and fireworks were going off in my brain.  THE RICHNESS nearly killed me!

Here is the *secret* (shhh!)

The processing plant takes most of the fat out of the raw milk, to make cheese, butter, ice cream, yogurt, half&half and other yummy stuff. They then sell you the *water* leftovers and call it milk.  Of course, you could have bought it for the same price with all the cream still in it, if you opted to process it yourself, and I don’t mean pasteurize, I mean separate the cream, make butter and cheese and ice cream.  (yummy!).  So here is what I want you to do:  visit the link above, or google up your own nearest location, go out and buy some raw milk, and taste test it (preferably with some yummy chocolate chip cookies).  Then come back here to ViewfromBippus and tell us how you liked it.  Did the velvety flavor make you crazy?  Did the high fat content make you barf?  Was is so good you refused to share with the kids, and scarfed down the whole jug?  Try out whole milk today, before it becomes a crime.

And then share a testimonial in the comment section.

You should be cautioned, dear reader, that since 1998, 831 people have reported illnesses related to the consumption of raw milk (see “Is raw milk safe” link below) Let’s see 831 ill/12 years = 6 drop the 11, 9 drop the 3 = 69.25 illnesses per year, which indicates to me that drinking raw milk is safer than walking across a city street.
