If you find yourself reading these lines, that means that you’ve already turned the page in your life and decided to live a healthy life, or it means that you will soon do that. Going the raw milk route is not easy in so many ways, but we encourage you to continue with that. In this case, you want to start using raw milk instead of the industrial milk, milk that you usually find in shops and markets.
While we are talking about it, let’s just mention something about raw milk. This kind of milk is very rich in vitamins; it has an enormous amount of food enzymes and beneficial bacteria. It helps your body to digest and to work in the best possible way. If you want to read a little more about benefits of consuming non-industrial raw milk, we suggest that you go to our previous article: Benefits of Raw Milk
OK, now we have enough information about utilizing raw milk and we are ready to start using it. Here we have our first problem – where can we find it?
You may be thinking that this kind of milk you can find in local groceries shops or markets but don’t be so sure about that. Even though it says on the milk box that that milk is 100% natural, you should know that that’s not true- that and every other milk is pasteurized to give it a longer shelf life. Pasteurization is done with heat which kills the enzymes, vitamins, etc. which are natural to it.
So, where can we find real raw milk? Now, we will give you a list of places from where you can order your fresh milk, depending where you currently live.
