I have found a dairy about an hour away that will supply me raw cow's milk at $4.00 per gallon 4% butter fat, unfortunately she doesn't have any goats. However, there is a farm within 10 minutes of my house that will sell me raw goats milk, but there is a $25.00 annual membership fee and they want $10.00 per gallon for goat's milk. The price seemed high to me, but I have know knowledge of goat's milk cost, I was just comparing it to what I pay for cow's milk. The question I have is how much should goat's milk cost me and how much cheese can be made per gallon. Also, based on my memory which is sometimes suspect, I thought I read that goat's milk can be frozen for later use and that it is naturally homogenized, is this true?
Thanks for all of your help,
