Over a year ago, I started having issues with drinking store bought cow's milk. After much reading, I came to realize I was having problems digesting the protiens in dairy.
So I went without ~
without my 2 glasses a day.
without ice cream.
without cheese on my burgers.
Over the months we discussed dairy goats (again) and even a family cow.
But first I needed to find out if I could handle raw milk.
A few weeks ago, I tried some goat's milk. I thought it was wonderful but it got mixed reviews from the other members of our family ~ everything from preferring it over cow's milk to refusing to even try it.
Even with that, we decided to go look at some goats. But while we were there, Wayne kept looking at the cow dairy next door. He was thinking... I could tell.
Upon leaving, he suggested we go meet the people, see the cows, and try some milk.
We were delighted with what we found ~
Gentle cows (we were welcomed with licks)
& Sweet milk
all at the Stewart Dairy

We took a gallon home.
This week we went back for 6 more gallons, plus cream for coffee, cream cheese for bagels, and even a block of jalepeno cheese.
It's wonderful, I tell you. I've never tasted milk so good!
The best part is that it doesn't hurt my stomach. :)
If you are local, make the drive to Blanchard, Oklahoma to buy raw milk at the Stewart Dairy Farm. You will be glad you did.
Like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word,
so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation.
