Raw milk is just milk as it comes from the cow, before its pasteurised (heat treated to kill bacteria). Unfortunately it's not only the bad bacteria that is killed in the process. DH grew up on a dairy farm and they drank milk straight from the cow all the time. Everyone did once upon a time.

    It's obviously different when something is mass produced and made available to the consumer market. Safety is paramount. However, raw milk is available in other western countries and it's only a matter of time before its available here in one way or another. I hope this cold pressed method is safe as it would be good to have that option.

    Bath milk (raw milk sold under the assumption people won't drink it but bathe in it - cr@p - of course they're drinking it! Loophole!) is available now and plenty of people demand it. So why not bring a safer alternative to the market.

    Unsure how I feel about feeding it to my kids at this point. I would definitely consider it.
    If they could guarantee the safety of the milk through storage and transport then I am all for it. Over my childhood I have drunk milk raw from my uncles cow and also an older couple down the road where we used to buy milk.

    I would not buy this particular milk due to the milk having to travel so far (I don't believe they sell it in Bris).

    I would also prefer to have the milk no more than a day old so would only buy 500ml-1L (at most) every day. I am dreaming of the olden days of milk delivery in a glass bottle in the morning lol.

    I would. I grew up drinking milk straight from the dairy.

    I would probably try it, but not go out of my way to purchase it.

    I don't drink milk by the glass (I have a dash in coffee & use it for cereal) and no one else in my household consumes dairy milk, so I'm not really in the market for such a product.
