Buying milk in bulk?
« on: November 09, 2011, 05:19:23 PM »
Hi everyone,

I am looking to buy some milk to make cheese in bulk but am not sure how to go about doing it.

Where should I start looking locally? Newspapers? At the supermarket? I am completely clueless!  :(

Thanks, Matt

Find a farm and talk to the owners. Most places around you have contract with Darigold... we're in a tough state. Try an ad on craiglist or post an ad for milk wanted at your local feed store.
Taking an extended leave (until 2015) from the forums to build out my farm and dairy. Please e-mail or PM if you need anything.
