Milkin' It

Now that Bert drinks whole milk morning and night, we've been going through it pretty quickly. We had been buying organic milk at the grocery store, but recently the doughnut shop here in town started carrying local milk in glass bottles. An initial, one-time, $2 deposit is required on the bottle, and then we just return the empty one each time we go back. We get whole milk for Bert, and skim for us about once a week. Most of the time, we walk up to get it so it's exercise too! The milk is from local, grass-fed cows, not treated with hormones or antibiotics. It's pasteurized and homogenized which is good, because I just can't get into the raw milk deal. I love that it comes in reusable glass bottles since the organic milk we had been buying was in cartons that we can't recycle in our area. They carry both half-gallons and quarts (usually we get a half-gallon for Bert and a quart for us and that lasts us about a week).

If you had any reservations about how good this milk is, let Bert demonstrate his fondness for it:

And in case you are wondering, no, I don't buy doughnuts every time we get milk. Even though Bert points and jabbers enthusiastically. He must think I'm a pushover like his daddy (who does buy doughnuts when he is sent to get the milk).

  1. I was wondering how the milk was, as I've passed by the shop on walks. I can't figure out how to get Jude to drink milk--he just doesn't like it, even mixed with chocolate. Hence it's been hard completely weaning him from the breast. Thankfully he really loves yogurt, so at least he's getting the calcium.
