Raw Milk Co-Op

Join the raw milk coop!


Here’s the info:

We buy from Deerfield Farm in Durham, CT. They are a very local, small family farm, with 16 grass-fed cows, who are never given antibiotics. The milk we buy is raw (unpasteurized – meaning it has not been heated), additive-free and not homogenized (cream on the top). The milk goes directly from the cows to the cooling system, preserving many of the beneficial nutrients which are normally killed in the pasteurization process.

  • Orders will be placed on a month-to-month basis
  • Payment will be up front for the entirety of the month
  • Pick up is at 316 Washington on Sundays between 4-8pm

The first order will be this weekend, with pickup on Sunday, February 3rd:

  • A 1/2 gallon is $3.25
  • A gallon is $6

For February (4 Sundays in the month):

  • a 1/2 gallon share will be $13
  • a gallon share will be $24

Additionally there will be a homemade yogurt and kefir making session this semester.

If you are interested in joining or have any questions about raw milk, please email teaton@wesleyan.edu. In your email please note if you want a 1/2 or full gallon and if you have access to a car and are willing to do milk pick-up (15 minute drive).

EDIT: Anyone who wants to sample the milk before buying in for the whole month may purchase one trial sample for the first week.

    This shit is also excellent for making fresh clotted cream, which together with a hot scone and a cuppa is one of the great pleasures of life.

    I second everything xiaoxi said. Also raw milk does not go bad faster. It has a longer shelf life than pasteurized milk. If you drink spoiled pasteurized milk you would get really sick. Raw milk dosen’t really go bad, it just turns to yogurt.

    dear 1:02pasteurization and all the other stuff they do to milk nowadays is only necessary when you have unhealthy cows in terrible conditions being fed antibiotics and hormones 24/7, and when you have people that no longer consume fresh food but keeps everything in the fridge for weeks. Also, it doesn’t help that diet culture has made people irrationally afraid of consuming healthy, natural food like raw milk and butter but enthusiastic about processed, “low-fat” foods and ill-advised dietary restrictions like abstaining from carbs to loose weight. short shelf life isn’t a problem when you get fresh milk delivered everyday and you drink it all in the morning, right after the milkman gets to your door, like people used to do.

    Just don’t take it across state lines. I’m pretty sure that’s a federal crime of some sort.
