Milk direct from the farm -locations in UK
« on: August 25, 2015, 09:10:00 am »
Farmers Weekly have published a map of farms that sell milk direct to the public

See: http://www.fwi.co.uk/livestock/map-where-to-buy-milk-direct-from-farm.htm

May be useful if anyone would like to cut out the middleman and buy from the farmer.

Also raw milk is better than the stuff you get from the supermarket, pasteurized to the hilt it is, unless they pasteurize  it on farm :thinking: I just looked at the map, has anyone noticed one lone farm on an island :roflanim:
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.

That lone farm us on Alderney. It is their only milk supplier when it is either too foggy for planes to land or too windy for the boat to get in from Guernsey. Alderney can be quite isolated in bad weather !

They sound awesome, that's the best to hear about one farm keeping a whole island in milk, I respect that.

it's illegal for us to sell our raw goats milk so will have to invest in a pasteuriser ASAP  :(

It's illegal to sell any unpasteurised milk in Scotland.

Make it into product. In my case I make mine into buffalo cheddar, soon mozzarella, hopefully. I drink my milk raw and unpasturized myself, but I can't sell it at all to the public as I am not registered to do so.
