I personally dont drink whole milk, however my two boys do. My wife has concerns with raw and i cant stomach the organic ultra pastuerized "vegetarian" fed milk sold in stores. I came across this milk at my whole foods a few months ago and there aren't to many milks on the market that advertise Grass fed and I haven't been able to find any milks, other than this one, that uses low pasteurization. I know that Raw milk is the ideal if you are going to consume it, but againcmy wife has concerns. This company seems to be legit and the milk has a very short shelf life, which tells me the low pasteurization is really low and not just "lower" than ultra. They also make other products, but only carry the milk and heavy cream at my whol foods, which I do use. What are you thoughts on consuming this milk?
PS...for the dairy haters, please don't respond with why dairy in general shouldn't be consumed, because I've heard the arguments over and over.

I've never had RAW milk but I am pretty sure this stuff is a close second. I started drinking it not too long ago and LOVE it. I wish there were more companies producing milk like this.
As for your wife: tell her to pull herself out of the last century and leave behind those tired, discredited and harmful ideas about milk, pasteurization and "sanitizing" everything we touch. Doesn't take much internet research to find out the true safety of raw milk, let alone mildly pasteurized like natural by nature. Buy it, drink it, make your kids drink it, really make your wife drink it and enjoy.

I have had Natural by Nature Milk when I couldn't get up to PA to buy Raw. To me, it's a close second. I was never a big milk drinker (Mom never really had it in the house), but started drinking small (1/4 c, maybe) amounts when I was introduced to organic (yes, the ultra pasteurized crap). When I moved up north, and found Raw milk, I thought I DIED! I love it. I know it is not something I will give up completely, lol. The Natural by Nature is not as rich and delicious, but it doesn't have that emptiness I feel the ultra pasteurized has.

Where are you located? All over Ohio (so, also close to PA) and I think Indiana you can get Hartzler's Dairy, which is vat pasteurized at a lower temperature than N by N (165), at 145 degrees for 30 minutes...they claim there is still significant enzymatic activity after that, enough that many lactose intolerant people have reported drinking it without GI distress. Grassfed, comes in glass bottles, non-homogenized...it's delicious, too.

Sounds nice from the info. I'm sure it's expensive. You probably aren't going to find raw milk in the regular stores due to regulations. I don't know that you'll see much benefit from it (although your kids should). Assuming they drink it. Which they might not because it "tastes funny" compared to "regular" milk. As I'm sure you know, kids are expensive enough, without buying things they won't eat/drink.
