    Devondale, sanitarium (but that's soy, rice milk) and udder farm but this pretty hard to get and maybe only local-ish to me.

    What ever you do, just don't buy Coles or Woolies milk. They are responsible for decimating the WA dairy farmers. Lots have either gone out of business or have had to sell stock and aren't even making ends meet due to the milk price wars.

    Apart from that, their milk isn't really milk but full of permeates (milk by product) and water. Yuck yuck yuck.

    I hate buying woolies milk, we don't shop at Coles, but DP makes us get it because it is so much cheaper I think it tastes awful! I just never looked into it to see why. Maybe now I can convince him not to buy it.

    Every time I bought the Coles or woollies brand milk it went off before the use by date..usually 3-4 days before and not just smelling off but it went all lumpy...yuk!

    Yep. I used to buy Brownes, and by the due date it was getting that cheesy taste.

    Then a dairy farmer told DH that they use the permeates as well so we switched to Harvey Fresh.

    One day I realised that the milk was 2 days past the due date (unusual for us, it never usually lasts long!!) but it still tasted fine. Guess that's the difference between real milk and rubbish milk!
