As I was prepared to pay $6.75 each for two gallons of milk - I had a $10.00 and four $1.00 bills - I had to make an adjustment. As I also had a $20.00 bill, I ended up buying a container of yogurt ($4.50) in addition to the milk. Deerfield Farm works on the honor system with a lock box in the store for customers to leave payment for their products.
My options were to:
- Buy 1 gallon for $7.50 and a 1/2 gallon for $4.00 and paying $12.00
- Buy the intended 2 gallons for $15.00 and paying $20.00
- Buy 2 and 1/2 gallons for $19.00 and paying $20.00
- Buy 2 gallons and 1 quart of plain yogurt for $19.50 and paying $20.00
Raw milk v. pasteurized/homogenized milk is a considerable debate. Raw milk is not sold legally in many states. Fortunately for me, Connecticut is not one of those states.
I encourage you to check out the following links for more information concerning raw milk:
