well, I got a cheese making kit for my birthday - thanks ma! :D

However, where can I get raw milk from? I live in the eureka area (half way between hamilton and morrinsville) I know I can get it from the other side of cambridge, but that is really a bit far away.

Any ideas?

Have you got enough room to keep a cow?

In your location there are many dairy farms, you may even know a dairy farmer that's a close neighbour ?

I think they are allowed to sell something like 5L per person, don’t quote me on this please as it maybe just new rules which they are trying to get in?

UTSF to find the thread on raw milk sales, as this might have more info :)

Go and ask a nearby farmer if you can buy or have some of his/hers. They're usually pretty good about stuff like that. Even better if you can swap for something you have, like eggs.

If I had room for a cow w calf, I would have one.Unfortunately, we only have enough room for a steer, and have to feed out over winter.

I have already checked out the other raw milk threads, haven't managed to find anything.

[}:)] If you live in Eureka, you have already "found it". :D

Lots of dairy farms around your area. There must be someone you could approach.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

The most nutritionally correct would be from a human - do you know any lactating ladies that have enough for you to have some?
The next closest is goats milk, but that makes cheese that is different than cows cheese.
Next come sheep, horses and donkeys. These are safe to use raw.
Whale and seal milk comes in somewhere around here.
About lastly comes cows milk, which is neither like human milk, and can have considerable health risks. Unless I knew the tuberculosis status at the time of milking (it can change in a day), the brucellosis status and the leptospirosis status, there is no way that I would touch the stuff "raw". I've seen the effects of all of these.

Would pigs milk not be close to humans nutritionally? Just thinking if we can use insulin etc derived from pigs and other assorted pigs organs and cell structures medicinally, would that not make their milk close to ours?

Granted I have yet to see or hear of people milking sows, but I'm sure it happens somewhere. - On that note I've also not really heard or seen Human milk cheese either. but there you go.

Hi, just wondering whether you've found out where to get some raw milk from? I'm in Hamilton and would like to get some too.

??What! you don't have enough milk??
Actually I think I might ask the guys on the farm if we can get some occasional cows milk as well.

hehehe Shae.....this is my new idea :) I want to get about 10 litres a week, so I can skim the cream for butter and cream, and then feed the skimmed milk to porky (Paul has affectionately named our piglet that). I am thinking of asking that farm too, as they are one of the closest to here. Mavis who I used to get milk from can't supply me what I want. So are these guys nice?? lol
