Got Raw Milk? Asking your farmer a few basic questions will help you determine how safe your raw milk is to drink! | @NourishingJoy via

I love raw milk and I personally believe it’s one of the most nourishing foods we can consume.

However, I’m certainly aware that not everyone shares my enthusiasm — largely because there are lingering questions about its safety. Is raw milk safe to drink? Really, truly?

Like most things, intentionality and being an informed consumer plays a key role in obtaining raw milk that is safe to drink.

Raw milk, unlike many foods, is remarkably safe to consume due to its highly probiotic nature. However, that’s not to say it can’t be overwhelmed by harmful bacteria or other microorganisms if it’s produced, stored, or transported in unsafe or unclean ways and therefore becomes unsafe to ingest.

Thus, determining whether or not the milk you drink is safe is a critical question you must answer.

So, with that in mind, I've put together a list over at GNOWFGLINS to help you think through your raw milk sources.

  1. When I was a small child we had our own milking cows. we boiled the milk then put it in the frig. that milk was good. I won’t drink the milk now unless I put chocolate or strawberry flavour in it because it tastes phony.
