Raw milk

Since I gave up being vegetarian we started buying organic milk, but even this is pasteurised so I found a localish supplier of organic raw milk. It tastes great, very creamy and works out cheaper than supermarket bought organic milk. However you have to join their milk club because like it is in other countries it is illegal to sell raw milk to the general population.

And it is this joining the club where the farmer has in my opinion failed in the business sense. I have been trying to join before Christmas paid my joining fee and for a week of milk upfront, filled in forms, etc No response, tried phoning - no-response. I don't understand as a small business owner selling a specialised product to a niche market, you just can't afford to waste an opportunity to get another customer. Or so you would think. I've asked for my money back but no response.

The organic shop has a sign on the window for raw goats milk - I may try that next.

Join the movement and we'll start a revolution - stop all unnecessary shopping - separate your needs from your wants.
