I've been looking for a local dairy farmer who would sell milk for quite awhile. There just aren't any close by. What I did find is a dairy farm that sells raw milk and is willing to deliver to my work place. This is the first batch of butter I made from the cream off the milk. Isn't the color amazing? Organic, grass-fed cows on a family farm. Beautiful.
This was an interesting thing; a couple months back I received an email at work about a healthy eating challenge the state was sponsoring to get people eating more fruits and veg. I signed up and they sent me seeds to grow cucumbers and lettuce (I can always use more seeds). I asked some of my gardening coworkers but they hadn't bothered reading the email. Then last week I was notified that my name had been drawn at random for 'assorted gardening tools' and this is what they sent. Hooray! Finally some good luck.
