One Small Change

I'm a little late getting around to this post, I know. When the new year rolled around and I noticed this project created by the ever-inspiring Suzy of Hip Mountain Mama, my wheels began spinning wondering what we could do in our family. Many of you know that we drink our own goat's milk, and some of you also know that our oldest daughter Jill just can't take the taste. So, our small change came about quite naturally after all. We had been purchasing milk for her - and to supplement the goat milk when there just wasn't quite enough, at the grocery store. Sometimes organic, sometimes not. Jill has a very sensitive taste for milk and can tell us exactly what brand she is drinking without looking! I knew there was an organic dairy down the road from us, but was put off by the price and the inconvenience. However, it has finally come down to the desire to make a difference in the world, and in the health of our family. Our dairy sells raw, organic cow's milk and cream. They take wonderful care of their cows and seem to care very much about thier impact on the world. And the milk? Delicious! Jill took one sip, then a few more as a blissful smile spread across her face. "Oh, mom! This is what milk is supposed to taste like!"

What a beautiful post!
I am so inspired that you drink your own goats milk! How wonderful to be self sufficient in this way and how wonderful your daughters sensitive taste was so happy with raw milk! xoxo

How cute of your daughter! We used to get local cow's milk, then local goat milk, but my girls couldn't tolerate it so we had to take animal milk out of their diets. I love supporting local dairies and think your Jan. change is a great one!
Thanks for joining!
