    Default Fresh Milk in SD

    Just wondering where is the best place in SD to buy fresh milk? We have only been able to find UHT milk in the supermarkets we have been to.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    In Brazil, many a long time ago but still applies. We had fresh milk everyday and it was put into an electric pasteruizer... every day. I would not drink "raw" milk or untreated milk products in the D.R. without it being treated OR know/inspect the dairy and the owners.

    Sorry that I can not answer your question of where. Ringo

    Rica produces fresh milk, which is available from most supermarkets in the refrigerated dairy section. However, I stopped buying it years ago because it was often already off upon opening, even well before the sell-by date.

    Yes, on Gustavo Mejia Ricart is a place you can buy fresh milk.

    If you take Nunez and drive east on Gustavo it's about 300-400m down on your left.
    I can't remember the name, but they have a cow on a sign and the front of the small
    shop is green. They sell fresh milk, cheeses, yogurt etc. It's a small family run business and it's good and cheap

    Chiri and Robert?

    Is the milk and products raw or pasturized in some way?

    Thanks, Ringo

    Pasteurized I'm assuming. I have brought and drunk milk from the place on Gustavo Mejia Ricart a few times and never had any ill effects.

    The 'fresh' Rica milk sold in supermarkets is pasteurised.
    For raw milk you'd have to go direct to the farm.

    Fabulous - thank you!

    I'll be popping in there on Monday for a dairy fix.

    You have made our expat construction team very, very happy!

    Nice to help people be happy and that they know what they are getting.

    From some days of raw milk and shaking for butter. Ringo

    Raw milk is great but, unless you live on a farm or have a direct access to milk from a farm you've personally inspected, I would not consider it.
    I own a dairy farm on the North Coast and luckily consume my own raw milk (butter, cream, yogurt, ...etc). I also sell the surplus to the local collectors and have seen the conditions the milk is handled. I can assure you that i would never drink a drop of my own milk once it leaves my farm.
