Raw Milk...Healthy Living

By: Heather Schmitt-Gonzalez    (Jul 30, 2008)

My family joined the WDHA about 4 1/2 months ago. We wanted to support local farming and take a step in the right direction towards living healthier and enriching our lives through getting "back to the earth". Hard work, dedication and commitment are words that describe this diverse group of people involved in bringing raw, organic milk to it's members each and every day!

Raw milk was a new experience for our children and myself, but we all have grown to LOVE it and definitely do not want to go back to pasteurized, grocery store milk. We do feel healthier- whether it is actual or perceived...we'll take it! Some weeks are better than others (as far as milk production), but this is a FARM, not a grocery store! I've had weeks where I had so much milk that I could make cheese, ice cream, yogurt and kefir. I've also had weeks where we've stretched & saved so we wouldn't waste any precious milk! We chose to become members of the WALKERTON DAIRY HERD ASSOCIATION as a way of living and are extremely satisfied. Every member adds their own character to this group and I recommend it to any person looking to support local farmers and support a healthy local diet!!
