I buy raw milk from health food stores. Only problem is they charge $7.50 for 2lts. The taste makes it all worhtwhile.
If I could find a farmer that sells pure milk direct, I would be there in a jiffy….February 11, 2011 at 2:52 pm #479166karyn26Member
Has anyone seen the commercial for a new milk.
It’s done by the guy who did the paper towel ad,and lobs up on peoples doorsteps.
They reckon its closer to natural cows milk and the kids dont have reactions to it such as milk intolerance.
Sorry cant think of it’s name as I dont worry about commercials too much.
I was on shopping shift for work the other day and refused to buy homebrand and opted to spend the extra and bought the local dairy milk Riverina fresh,I mainly drink soy myself.February 11, 2011 at 5:45 pm #479167mistyhollowsMember

Yes it is slowlynow. Now I know why we enjoy it so much as well compared to other brands. They also do an organic milk too but it’s very popular and sells out quickly around our parts.
I’m not sure if you can get it around the Wollongong area Roadwarrior but I do know that family in Kiama can get it so you could have a look around. Given they make it in Berry you should have a decent chance of getting hold of it. Otherwise you could look on their web site and email them to find out who stocks it locally.
Off to finish weeding the veg garden 🙁 .February 11, 2011 at 6:25 pm #479168porgeyMember
What is happening to our milk supply, and most other foods, is terrible. The poor farmer who does all the hard work gets pittance and the mincers who advertise & come up with fancy names get more – go figure.
Coles & Woolies have dropped there milk sale price as classic “loss leaders”. That is lure consumers in the door with one cheap over advertised staple and they will buy there other goods at the same time thus handing the supermarkets big profits.
What also concerns me is that as we get used to low milk retail prices the supermarkets will struggle raising the price and will thus source milk from offshore, namely China. Its bad enough that our poor farmers get pittance and most of our dairy products are foreign owned but soon we may be drinking foreign milk(?). We drink reconstituted orange juice from Brazil & California so its possible we may end up drinking reconstituted milk from who knows where.
There are simple rules of course, grow your own, buy locally and if you have to buy from the stupormarkets try and buy Australian owned. Of course organic is best.February 12, 2011 at 11:46 am #479169RobyneMember
Eldest sons department has the milk in it and he was saying with this price war going on that all the special milk has gone up a dollar so when it all ends which it will do, within a year. The $2 milk will go up but the special milk will not come back down.
Write to head office and voice you disgust in them ripping off the public. Tell them that a copy has also gone to the TV channels to let them know they are not bring down prices:evil:February 12, 2011 at 2:55 pm #479170FeyWindMember
Anyone know where to get pet milk in Campbelltown (Sydney) region? All this talk has made me want goats again, but I don’t have enough space to keep them. Goat, cow or sheep milk would be ok.
Heck camel or alpaca milk would probably be too if they were cheap enough :laugh:July 20, 2012 at 9:03 pm #479171goodfoodMember
Really nice thread.
If we direct buy milk from farmers,it may be excellent and cheap price than supermarkets..July 21, 2012 at 2:47 am #479172dierichParticipant
Interesting article in the Advertiser today about dairy farmers ‘bracing for difficult year” – the price they get is expected to be between 35-37 c/l, whereas last year it was 38-40 cents. so a ‘wage cut’ for them but I bet everyone else up the line gets a pay rise : http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/dairy-farmers-bracing-for-a-difficult-year/story-e6frea6u-1226431252219July 21, 2012 at 2:36 pm #479173RobyneMember
Since GS has moved in with us we have had to buy milk in larger amounts. So each fortnight I buy 8 x 3 liter milk which I freeze.
The other day I let one defrost and at the bottom of the bottle was a line of thick powder like stuff. Hubby shook it and it went. But the milk had a powder taste to it. I was wondering if the shops are putting powdered milk in to make it go futher.
When I asked Son1 he said no one else has said anything but will listen for anythingOctober 25, 2012 at 11:07 pm #479174goodfoodMember
