Katy replied to Marada Cook's discussion IS LOCAL MAINE FOOD TOO EXPENSIVE?
"This is a tough one indeed.  If we can just encourage people to look deeper at important issues.  For myself, eating whole, fresh organic, local foods is like health insurance.  I never get sick and thus save a LOT of money that…"

"Moomilk is not raw. Find a dairy in you area and ask if they will sell you raw milk. Some will and it's usually reasonably priced."

"Funny you should mention that--a friend just e-mailed me about the proposed "Food Tyranny Act" that would hand over new powers to the FDA to regulate and criminalize raw milk, food farming and seed saving. That does not surprise me about…"

"Oddly enough, the list that David linked to says that some Maine farms previously on the list have asked to be removed. "NOTE: Five Maine listings were removed on October 1st at the farmers' request because USDA officials are using this…"

"Thanks for this info. We are fortuneate to live in a state that allows us to buy and sell raw milk...some other states do not allow it. I hate it when the govt gets involved and do not allow the people to make choices for themselves."

David Bright replied to Katy's discussion Raw Milk
"Here's a list of most of the farms in Maine that offer raw milk, either at the farm or through retail markets. I can't vouch for its accuracy, but the group that published it is dedicated to the sale of raw milk around the…"

"Hey Dave, I live in the Augusta area. I think I have seen it at the locations you suggested. I was hoping to get it from a farm as it is that much fresher and cheaper."

David Bright replied to Katy's discussion Raw Milk
"Katy, The are a number of Maine farms that bottle raw milk and sell it either at the farm or through natural foods stores. The Belfast Coop carries three or four different brands of raw milk. The Natural Living Center in Bangor also has one or two…"

"Hmmm, thanks for the tips guys. I was actually looking for raw milk, which is something I would have to get directly from a farm. I will keep looking."

"And MOOMilk is not raw milk. It's pasteurized milk, with a 14-day shelf life. Most of the other organic milks you can find in the store are ultra-pasteurized. They are basically cooked and have a much longer shelf life, but they don't…"

"Thanks for the link to MOOMilk, Jeff. MOOMilk is not a branch of Oakhurst. They distribute MOOMilk for us in Maine and in a few stores in New Hampshire. MOOMilk will soon be available in the Boston area! There, we are hiring Organic Renaissance to…"

Jeffrey R. Anthony replied to Katy's discussion Raw Milk
"Perhaps my response was not very 'user friendly.' MOO Milk is based in Augusta and is Oakhurst's raw milk L3C branch. They have a handy search engine for finding nearby places to purchase MOO Milk here."
