    While it is reasonable, it may not be possible, as not everyone can have the lifestyle and space to have their own cow. I would LOVE to drink fresh milk, but won't-and can't- be getting my own Jersey anytime soon, so I am forced to buy from the store. I do try, however, to buy from stores that source from local farms, when possible.

    Sorry. I am not too sympathetic. Having been involved with the dairy industry for many years I can tell you there is nothing wrong with store bought milk. I worked as a milker on a commercial cow dairy for many years and I had a goat dairy for even longer. I have consumed both commercially and home produced dairy products and I don't see anything wrong with any of them. You can't beat fresh Jersey milk though. Just because something tastes a little different from what you are used to, it doesn't mean there is anything wrong with it. Store milk is not putrid. I cannot say the same for some carelessly produced back yard milk I have encountered.The dairy industry is governed by some very strict health regulations and guidelines. That is something I have experienced first hand.

    seriously, just because its store bought doesnt mean it will kill you or that its horribly deficient in nutrients.
