Skimming Raw Milk

We’ve been getting raw milk (also called Real Milk) from a local farm for a few years. Actually I should say that we’ve been getting raw milk from our cow for a few years. The sale of raw milk is illegal in Ohio, so we participate in what’s called a “Herd Share” program. We bought a cow and we pay the farmer’s to take care of it for us. It’s legal to drink raw milk if it comes from your own cow. This milk is as fresh as you can get, we pick it up the day after it’s milked, it’s unpasteurized and unhomogenized. Since it’s not homogenized the cream rises to the top, it’s also called cream line milk. We make butter every week from our raw milk. It's a fun process and it saves me lots of money. I get about a pound and a half of butter each week.

    Thanks, sometimes it's tough to take photos while doing things, you get a lot of blurry ones, but sometimes there are a few good ones.

    I'll trade you some money for some raw milk. That way it's not a sale, it's a trade.
