They're also nothing like microbreweries because dairies produce almost exactly the same stuff, for most people most of the time. Certainly, once it's on your cocoa pops or in your tea, it's the same. Micro beers are distinctly different, and that's their usp.

It's a comparison that fails in a lot of ways.

If you're a heathen, yes. We'd just managed to get some decent milk in the local shop, after years of Spar's own brand. Then the shop was changed to McColls and now all we can get is Wiseman's.

cow>bucket>dpack is very different to owt from a shop and i will happily consume more than is probably good for me

i use alpro "fake milk " for cooking and drink black coffee if no moo is available to help.

cow>machine>chiller>jug>dpack is acceptable but there isnt such a chain locally

and i only really like salad fed jersey/guernsey milk

maybe im fussy but i would rather not bother with the stuff most places sell

the economics of milk are such that the folk who might have a product i want are very rare nowadays,i grew up thinking unpasturised jersey milk was normal milk but it seems it is the "caviar"of white splosh.

Along the same lines Dpack, I would much prefer not to buy homogenised milk, as you can't take the cream off it for 'top of the milk', clotted cream, or even a tiny amount of butter. Sadly, I can't really get proper milk except at some farmers markets.

Waitrose do it; Duchy Originals. There might also be some farms nearby, depending upon your location.

I think I can get some in Sainsburys at least sometimes, but it is annoying that it isn't the norm these days. I understand that homogenised lasts longer, but still prefer the proper stuff.
