Raw Milk

You have never had real milk until you have a glass of raw milk! Our family has been drinking raw milk for almost a year now and will never go back to pasturized milk. We are so thankful to have friends that work hard in providing this food for us! Imagine milking two cows, by hand, morning and night!? I have often dreamed of having my own Jersey, but for now we will continue to purchase it :)

I have included some great sites about raw milk so check it out and see for yourself how truly beneficial real, raw milk is!
