Got Raw Milk...?

For thousands of years...
before the advent of Louis Pasteur...

the human race had raw milk...
straight from the udder

the raw milk came from cows, goats, sheep, camels, buffaloes...
and a few other milk producing mammals

this was a gift from God Almighty who refers to it as symbols/metaphors of...
 His blessings and His precious word

raw milk was considered a medicine in times past...
making weak, ill children strong...
and giving people good teeth and bones...
and all kinds of vitamins, minerals, omega-6, enzymes, CLA, 8 essential acids,
lactoferrin, an iron building protein,
lactobacilli to help digest lactose,
lactic acid to boost absorption of calcium, phosphorus, iron, proteins

really, how good can a raw food get?

and then, came along pasteurization
this was to help keep longer storage life...
and someone said it would keep disease away

now longer-life, "cooked" milk on shelves no longer have all the goodies to make a body stronger
instead of souring naturally (raw sour milk is still good to drink)
pasteurized milk putrefies (not good to drink)

instead of tasting good and fresh and creamy...
it tastes just plain bad and full of funny stuff that shouldn't be in milk...
like synthetic vitamins and growth hormones and such

all that special cream that makes milk tastes yummy and makes butter...
 is taken out and we are told...
that thin, milky water is better for us

when what they really do is sell the cream to companies...
to make the butter that they sell to us anyway

even the whole milk is less than you think...
you know, it makes more monies for them that way

I don't like to be beholden to them that withhold God-given good food from me...
so we got our own cow and some goats

see that rich and creamy, foamy yum-yum?

just try and do this with commercial, full of growth hormone and antibiotic,
funny-stuff-laced-grain-fed only 
(cows and goats are plant and grass eating animals by God's design),
 penned up, unhappy and un-natural cows and goats

I give my Lord God thanks for giving us these mammals to give...
chock full of the things that are healthy...
real milk in the raw

it's a fight these days against the ignorant and conglomerate corporations...
to be able to have one's raw milk and drink it, too

happily, here on this island...
they haven't laid hands on our freedom to have raw milk

we don't have laws against it...
and we can do with it as we please...
whether we share by giving or selling 

even my dogs know which milk is best...
they take raw over "cooked" every time

yeah, Foxie, your cup of raw goat milk coming up, just now...
you smart dog

how udderly delicious

And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food,
for the food of thy household,
and for the maintenance for thy maidens.
Proverbs 27:27

As newborn babes, 
desire the sincere milk of the word,
that ye may grow thereby:
if so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
1Peter 2:2

May the Lord be gracious to you this day, or night.


  1. It's incredibly sad that here in the US they have natural milk producers scared to death to share their goodness w/ others. It's so very sad and upsetting. I do wish we could have our own fresh supply of milk. Maybe someday! And don't get me started on the feed lots we saw in Wyoming, the stench stayed with us for miles after passing them. It's only by God's grace that any of us have any health at all, seeing how the industry strips food of it's natural goodness and then adds horrible filler to give it a longer shelf life.

  2. as long as it's cold, with cookies!

  3. This does look good and I would love to make some cheese with it!

  4. I have joked with Jason that our farm is a living testament; the land of milk and honey

    sorry I haven't said hello, but I have enjoyed your posts as usual

    I was just securing a Swiss Alpine goat...I'm hoping it goes through soon and she comes to the farm

    looks warm at your place already (we are still getting frost!)

  5. That looks so wonderful and fresh we dont drink milk the stuff from the store is no good! I do use coconut milk instead though :) enjoy your super fresh raw milk Great pictures Love Heather

  6. I have to admit that I've never had 'raw' milk. I started out drinking whole milk then made the change to 2% , that was a taste bud challenge for us. Then I read a little bit from the book, Nourishing Traditions, and since I can't get my hands on fresh-raw milk, like it suggests, we switched back to whole milk. And again, that was another taste bud challenge since we got used to the 2%.

    Honestly, I can't imagine putting my lips to raw milk of any kind! And, I know the truth that it is the best and purest, and that the processed is SO not good for us. When ever I have the opportunity, though I feel a little queesy about it, I WILL drink of the whole-raw-natural milk :)

    I enjoyed this post! Thanks & God Bless
