Well, YEAH! I'd choose that too.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

My DH wants a cow. of course he works out of town most of the time, so that would just leave me to do the milking. lol
I think maybe after we do some travelling next year, we might consider that. But I have GOT to see Europe first!

Whoa, you're really out there. That's nice for location for sure. But a little difficult for accessing some things. You going to get a cow?? Maybe you could start your own (underground) herd share with a few good, honest friends. I know, it takes a lot of babysitting to keep a cow. Maybe when your daughter gets a little bigger she would like to collect "donations" for taking care of the cow.

No. I'm in 150 Mile House now. Near Williams Lake. About 3 hours north of Kamloops, BC.
I checked out the realmilk website (that's how I found my last lady farmer friend), but no herdshares around here. I even got in touch with Weston Price Foundation. Of course, they won't tell me anything (fear, I'm sure).
I'll check those others out.

Are you still in B.C.? Near Vancouver? Is the Washington State border anywhere near you? You can get raw milk in Washington State still...I think...not here in Oregon. I have to get mine from a friend who has a cow and a teenager who sells milk to 2 or three people...shhhh!

Don't know if you've already seen these websites or not but maybe something here might be of help:

That's cool. Yeah. Mine comes in the glass bottles also.
Wish I could find some raw stuff though.

There's a milk just like that that I buy at a health food store. It's the only store I've seen it in--lightly pasteurzed and not homogenized. I have made cream cheese from it. I also use it to make kefir. Even though it is expensive for milk it still is cheaper for making kefir which in my mind, is way over-priced.

I skim the cream off the top using a turkey baster then let the milk and the cream sour naturally for a couple of days. The cream is usually gently soured by that time. The skimmed milk might take another day depending on the surrounding temperature. I was happily surprised that this lightly pasteurized milk did sour nicely; happened the first time by accident. I'm sure it has its limits though. One half gallon of this milk makes about 12 ounces or so of soft cream cheese. The whey is used for soaking stuff, adding to any recipe/concoction that needs liquid and even pouring some into my dog's food.

Your right about it tasting better than any of the other grocery store milks--really tasty. This one comes in returnable glass bottles; cool!

Thanks ANI. I can no longer get me hands on raw milk. However, there is a store here that sells non-homogonized milk, that is "lightly pasteurized".
It's not raw, but it still tastes way better than the stuff at the grocery store.
I don't imagine it would sour naturally though would it???

I have 4 half gallon jars sitting on a table in my basement that have been there for four days turning sour. Today I will bring them up, take that beautiful clabbered milk and make a creamy cheese to die for. You'll never find anything this good at a supermarket
