A friend of mine attended the ACRES annual conference and brought me back some great raw milk buttons, thank you Kris!
Which was just a great way to let you know our battle to advertise raw milk, a product we produce here on our own farm, continues. No response from any one in government type offices in response to the ads we placed in the large local newspaper, not any return calls to the ones I placed but that's because I am sure they are all out and about selecting gifts for me to put under my tree.
In the meantime, I had our web master, number one son, update our web site to include the availability of raw milk. Here it is for your reading pleasure
We really are so proud. It is the first time in the 15 years since we've had this website that we have ever openly advertised our non-homogenized and unpasteurized white beverage. Still a great deal at just $5 a gallon. A steal compared to the Chicago area where a new milk customer of ours recently told us he was paying $8 for a half gallon.
I'm thinking the reason behind that farmers price might have something to do with saving up for legal fees. Can't blame him one bit.
