From a quick squint, it looks like black and whites.... Don't know why they don't get some proper cows!

Still, they have a 180 cow herd, I expect their raw milk sales are a tiny fraction of what they produce.

I am still waiting for Patch to do her bit towards my raw milk production, ie lay a calf...

To get here we had to drive through France, we camped along the way and took our time. One of the nicest things we came across was fresh milk that had nothing done to it other than being passed through a filter of some sort. It was lovely. It reminded us of when we were young.

Found another one featured in the paper, although for some reason the online version says 'gold' in place of green.

Anyhow, their website says they're not actually supplying raw at the moment while there is some sort of dispute about samples with the FSA, but it is non-homogenised and usually available raw.

We buy our raw milk from a farm between Ilminster and Chard,can`t remember the name though.
Unfortunatly,the farm is a Somerset county smallholding,and they are waiting to see if it will be sold next year.

Here in France most supermarkets stock a small amount of lait cru ie raw milk. There are also milk vending machines that sell raw milk in either bottles you bring or you can buy a bottle from the other half of the machine.

Out of interest, how do they get round the law when selling it in Scotland?

Presumably the same way as if you were physically taking it over the border yourself? They're selling it in England...

It's from black and whites but it is organic, which I think is noticeably different even when pasteurised, so raw should be worth getting.

We'd run out and I was wondering what we were going to do for milk this morning (as we milk in the afternoon) until Nat pointed out that we have a cow!

I'd like to give raw milk a try again. When I was a kid and visited my uncle's farm, I used to avoid the milk because I thought it tasted like the smell of cowpats!

There's a dairy farmer down the lanes. Wonder if he sells milk at the gate.
