It's not lubbers! I've looked into them, but frankly I can't afford those prices at this point in my life.
Honestly, I'm not sure what the name of their dairy is, and I'm being totally honest. As I mentioned, it's my girlfriends brothers best friend, I haven't actually met her, just contacted her through my girlsfirneds brother (lots of relationships to keep track of!
). I think their farm is somewhere within an hour or two away, and I think they have quite a few dairy cows, but... Not sure exactly. She said, "whenever she goes home she can bring some milk on the way back, and she can even turn off the stirers if I want more creem" - I guess they keep the milk stirred up in the big tanks to keep the butterfat mixed in evenly, but it's nice to know I have the option to get the milk with higher fat content
- this would most likely be free, but I'm not sure. I'm not totally comfortable "using" my girlfriends brother to get me milk and I feel a bit bad about having somebody I don't even know carrying 5-10 gallons of milk around for me - which is why I'll probably wait until I actually have more of a "setup" so I can get some milk once and making something great
I will check out Sicilliano's for SURE - I am really excited about it actually! I looked all over (as I may have mentioned) for rennet (even junket) but couldn't find anything except at Walmart on Alpine. Dejavu, I think I mention this already
- anyway, if they have starter cultures that's even better, I'll give them a look for sure, maybe tomorrow!
As for the student teaching thing, she isn't sure yet actually - she's technically an Alma student, however to save money we're living at home this semester. The point being, Alma only deals with certain schools I believe, and I THINK she will be teaching at one of the more "inner city" schools - in particular there is a school on division or just off of I believe, called "Godwin Heights". I think she MIGHT be teaching there.
Do you happen to know a John Teeples? I think he either is or was on the Jenison School Board - I'm not sure if that's the type of "board" you were talking about, and even if it was I'm not sure if the board members would know each other, but you never know...
I'll keep you posted on my experience with Sicillano's and milk!
