We get our milk from . . .

Isn't she adorable!?!  Her name is Bessie, I think.

Bessie is one of a small family of cows that live on a small organic dairy farm not too far from us.  We take a little trip out there for our milk (and sometimes eggs,too).  It is raw, unpasteurized organic milk from cows that are only pasture fed.  Your first thought may not be a nice one, but don't knock it until you have learned about all of the benefits from drinking raw milk and the reasons milk started being pasteurized.
We walk around the farm, petting the animals, watching the farmer's wife care for them lovingly. It is nice to know where your food, or in this case, milk, comes from.

How about you?  Where does your milk come from?

Here are a couple of links.  But if you're interested in learning more and making your own informed decision for your family, you can just google it.  Ton's of links are out their for your benefit!
