Raw

Yesterday, i went with Elaine to collect milk from the local dairy farmer. At Padies, the only milk consumed in raw milk. It was a very cool experience. When we got to where the cows were being milked the cows were all lined up on the rectangular platform munching on hay as the milk was being sucked out of them. Below the platform men were fiddling with milk lines and testing the milk. In we treked with our bucket and handed it over to the men. They took it to the cow and ran a tap to the bucket. How raw can you get.  Once we got our bucket back it was still warm from the cow.

This farm in particular, does do some commercial production, however it is only to local cooperatives.  Just as it is in the states, raw milk is illegal to sell in supermarkets. However apparently ( as told by elaine’s son Olivier) you can find raw milk under bathing milk in the cosmetics aisle.
