milk run

Today we made our weekly drive down to buy raw milk. We get 3 gallons a week. It is such good stuff!

Elise was all ready to go.

It's lovely to drive through the country every week; it helps me stay in touch with my rural roots.

We often glimpse a variety of animals. Cows, horses, sheep, pigs, goats, chickens, ostriches, hawks. Last week I spotted seven deer. And the scenery is stunning!

I also make my regular stop to buy fresh farm eggs. I love that I am buying them from the person who raises the chickens.

Milk does do the body good. And you know what?

There's something about that drive that's good for this suburban mom's soul.

The milk looks so good with the fresh yellow cream. Do you make butter with the cream? We get raw milk too and I milk our goat. The milk is so good! We have chickens that are on grass and their eggs are incredible.

Yes, I do make butter! And yogurt,and ice cream.... we use the buttermilk for pancakes, etc., and it is *so* good. I love that you are able to have animals like that. How wonderful!
