For raw goat's milk, which I turn into Kefir, I use
The woman who runs it is very friendly - luckily she happens to drive past my house every week and drops off my order. They do mail order as well though, as that's what I originally contacted them about. The milk freezes well, and I just defrost one every two days to ferment up the next kefir batch.

I don't know where you live but I get my milk from here
Excellent, not expensive, and it freezes well. If you want a drive out in glorious West Sussex countryside, you could buy a few cartons and freeze them!

Dairy, 5 things. 1. Leading cause of osteoporosis in the long run - kills bone forming cells 2. Causes insulin levels to raise - reduced lifespan (great for babies) 3. Cal:Mag ration is 9:1, optimally it should be 2:1 - i.e. more circulating calcium in blood (not good) 4. It has been mentioned that because of the over acidity, it can cause the body to take calcium from the bones to main a proper PH. 5. If it is homogenized or fat-reduced - it is unhealthy.
Even though a paleo diet can logically include milk, only the young of a specie should drink it. So forgive me for saying that you should avoid it, if only for natural reasons.

I used to buy raw cream and butter in London Farmers' Markets, but that's not much good for you if you're not in London!
The most cost-effective way will be direct from the farm or farm shop, but I wouldn't recommend buying 'black market' raw milk from a non-raw-milk-approved farm - the hygiene criteria for raw milk producers are much more stringent
What I really want is raw goats milk/cream/yoghurt but it's really hard to find
(however, I can get raw camel milk where I live!)

I buy raw milk from Hook and sons. I use it to make Kefir which I have each day and an occasional glass of milk. I don't consume any other milk. I also get their raw cream which is outstanding and goes all too quickly. I have to limit myself to a delivery every three weeks (the milk freezes well). I started having raw milk because I have health problems and thought it would help. My health is improving but as I am doing multiple things to help I cant say it's all down to the milk. I know Red23 also sell raw milk and cream. Mail order was the only way I could obtain raw milk since I can't obtain it locally.
I am pleased with the milk and the dairy are great.
