the split creek farm is inspected weekly! www.realmilk.org has great information on raw, unprocessed milk and its safety in quality farms. nc and virginia do "cow share" programs to get around their no raw milk laws... the hardy berry farm says she's known folks from as far away as tennessee and florida come to sc for our well-regulated, high quality, legal and inspected raw milk-- cow or goat. yum! i just read a report about how dairy is far behind food borne illness every year-- behind meat, produce, etc. and how pasteurized dairy products contaminated by dangerous bacteria FAR exceeds unpasteurized. but strangely, in some states, it is the only ILLEGAL food. hmm... what other agenda could there be? could it benefit certain industries to eliminate competition? don't get me wrong-- there was a time when milk production and distrubution was scary-- think of upton sinclair's THE JUNGLE meat story with dairy-- same time period. little refrigeration, no disease testing (or minimal), poor transport, unsanitary living conditions for animals and employees, little regulation. again, www.realmilk.org a trip to split creek also inspires lots of confidence. they are very serious ladies!
in regard to your supply-- have you ever tried alfalfa or nettles? i saw PROFOUND effects on supply with a liquid chlorophyll supplement (available from the health food store) containing alfalfa and/or nettles. make certain to NOT purchase the peppermint flavored kind, as peppermint is an antigalactogogue. it's about $10 for a big bottle and you take 1-2 tablespoons a day. it increases your iron stores and the mineral content of your milk as well. it is also said to decrease allergies. probably the best overall book i have ever read on nursing is sheila humphrey's THE NURSING MOTHER'S HERBAL. you are welcome to borrow it if you like!

I read this and I think the Split Creek milk is okay because it is "Grade A" milk. The owner has a background in animal science and human nutrition so I'm pretty sure they take appropriate measures. Carey told me about this farm and she would probably know more about it.

Hey Jenny! I really enjoy reading your blog, but I do have one concern. Is the goat's milk you're giving Suzi raw? I understand the benefits of goat's milk vs. cow's milk, but if it's raw, it can still contain Listeria, which can cause serious illness and even death. I'm not trying to lecture you, but I thought you'd be interested in a paper written by the US FDA. The link is below. That's why most goat farms don't sell raw milk anymore.
