    Does anyone know where or if you can buy raw milk in South Australia and if not is it something people would be interested in buying? For cosmetic use only of course 😛

    I have seen on the notice board of one of the local shops out my way someone advertising fresh goats milk. But I haven’t seen anything for cows milk, most of the cows out my way are for meat not milking anyway

    Almost impossible to get unless you know someone with dairy cows 🙁 A couple of shops in Adelaide were apparently fined for selling un-pasteurised milk despite the label saying not for consumption. Should be a dairy not far from you, I’d try door knocking!

    If you go to http://www.firstfroots.com.au they will be able to get you in contact with Moo View Dairy who do the buy shares in a dairy cow.

    Wilson’s organics sells Cleopatra’s Bath Milk and the organic shop on St Bernards Rd (Magill I think) sells Hahndorf Real Milk. For external use only of course.

    At least they both did a year ago, I only just got my kefir grains out of storage again and am looking for the best deal on raw milk.

    Hopefulls beat me to the post. I’ve had cow shares at Moo View for some time (my cow is called Daisy of course), and can recommend them highly. They’re a terrific couple. Since you’re nearby you can probably pick up the milk at the farm, but they also make deliveries, at least as far as Aldinga, where I pick mine up.

    I’ve enquired with Moo View on Friday but as I live in Salisbury I don’t know how the delivery will work out.

    Miaowzen I am keen to hear how you go with them. I’d be keen in buying one share 🙂

    You’d have to go to a different delivery point, but it looks like they might be getting a new delivery point at Pooraka. If so, I will get 2 or 3 shares. I love raw milk kefir and fresh kefir quark.

    Just been and collected my first lot of milk from Moo View, and enjoying a delicious creamy latte! I’ve started with 3l a fortnight, but already thinking I’ll need to increase!

    If anyone’s interested, current pricing is $30 for your cow share, and $4/fortnight ‘boarding fee’. You receive 1.5 litres of milk a week. I collect from the dairy so not sure what additional costs may be. At $1.33 litre I’m saving money (refused to buy the supermarket brands) and supporting a very local farmer in the process – you gotta like that :tup:

    Myponga and Inman Valley would be you best bet to get fresh milk, lots of dairys around that areas
