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."

"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."

"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."

"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…"

"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."
