Back in the 20s, North Americans could buy fresh raw whole milk, real clabber and buttermilk, luscious naturally yellow butter, fresh farm cheeses and cream in various colors and thicknesses. Today’s milk is accused of causing everything from allergies to heart disease to cancer, but when North Americans could buy Real Milk, these diseases were rare. In fact, a supply of high-quality dairy products was considered vital to North American security and the economic well being of the nation.
What’s needed today is a return to humane, non-toxic, pasture-based dairying and small-scale traditional processing, in short . . . a campaign for real milk.
In an effort to provide this for my family and my community I would like to put out there to anyone interested in joining a cow share in Kamloops. A cow share is basically an arrangement in which a group of people all own shares of a cow collectively. Because we all own the cow it is then legal for us to distribute it’s raw unprocessed milk amongst ourselves. Not sell it. We can get together and make cheeses for our families. Enjoy fresh real cream and home whipped butter.
If this is something that you would be willing to support please contact me or leave a comment. I have pasture in Westsyde and husbandry skills. I need milkers; minimum two for morning shifts and two for evening shifts. There would be benefits to being a milker.
