Raw milk abounds… for a price

Today I picked up our first raw milk “co-op” bag. It contained:

1 quart of cows-milk yogurt, in a nice glass jar
1/2 gallon of raw milk
8 oz. goat cheese
1 dozen eggs
for $22

Yes, I know this is rather exorbitant, but $6 for 1/2 gallon of raw milk really is the going rate around here and so is $4 for a dozen eggs. I’ve talked to the owner of Cognito Farms many times over the past couple of years and I like that she is selling not just her own products but Glade Ridge too, and I think she’s buying eggs fro several farms to resell, which is the smart thing to do.

I hope we can buy this dairy package often, at least a few times a month. I’m especially interested in making other things with the milk, like mozzarella and ricotta.
