Milk is available in easy-pour 1/2 gallon glass jars or round
gallon jars. Many consumers consider glass a preferrable storage
for raw milk because it protects the flavor of the milk as well
as eliminating any risk of leaching chemicals found in plastic.
Reusable jars also contribute to making the co-op sustainable.
Raw milk sells retail nationwide from $8-14 per gallon. Through
this co-op, it is available to you at the low end of that
range. Imagine eliminating frequent trips to the store
for staple foods like milk and eggs, and also saving your
valuable time and gas money!
All our raw milk products (cow and goat) are unprocessed,
unpasteurized, and non-homogenized, as well as free from hormones
and antibiotics. All our dairy animals are fed high quality
grass and hay, and given little or no grain. To learn more
about the nutrition and health concerns of raw milk, click
here to visit our Raw Milk Information Page.
For each product offered, we have created standards to promote
high quality nutrition and natural or organic practices whenever
possible. These standards include practices of equipment santiation,
animal feed quality, collection procedures, and responsible
animal husbandry. Our producers comply with state requirements
and milk quality testing, and that information is made available
to members of the co-op.

The fat content of milk varies from animal to animal,
and from day to day as well as season to season, therefore
products distributed by the co-op do not bear a milkfat
designation such as 1% or 2%. Raw milk is offered
in two simple varieties: whole and hand-skimmed. Skimmed
milk is not fat-free but is comparable to 1% milk.
Raw dairy products have an average shelf life of about
10 days. Click here to visit our

antibiotics. More details about the producer can be found
