I've recently been reading pretty much the same info. Next time I go to Huntington I plan to stop at a place on Highway 70 with a sign Homemade Butter and fresh eggs. Has anyone on here tried their butter ??

I made some butter a week or so ago after reading this thread....just to say I have done it. I started with 2 quarts of fresh cream from Fresh Market. Ended up with a little over a pound of butter. Its good, but not economical and not really much different from regular store bought butter. It took a lot longer than I thought it would to separate. We also used the buttermilk for pancakes, they were exceptionally good.

I would.....in light of recent research about animal fats, I wouldn't have any hesitation giving up skim in favor of 2% or even whole.

Yes, drink whole!

The more you read about milk-heavy diets, the more concerned you'll get. Well...with regards to store-bought milk, anyway.

Read about "somatic cell count" and milk, and you'll see what I mean. It's pretty nasty. "Somatic cells" are basically a scientific name for "pus".

I haven't done any research on the organic milk from Kroger that we buy pretty regularly. Not sure how much benefit I'm getting for the extra $2 or so a gallon.

I would guess very little. I think organic at an industrial level is a crap shot. There's little oversight and the standards are so loose that there really is no standard.

Most of the organic milk sold in big-box-stores is produced by the same companies who produce the nonorganic brands.

Best bet would be to buy direct from a local dairy, pasteurized or raw. We have two family dairies here in Nashville that offer pasteurized milk. But, I don't know about Memphis.

I'm a Hatcher's fan (natural not organic), but I do pick up JD's Country milk from time to time. JD's is out of KY, but they do come into Nashville.
