We eat a lot of dairy. Mostly because we don't eat much meat and it's one of our big sources of protein. Recently I've started making our own yogurt instead of buying the 20-odd little plastic vats of yogurt per week. And I've been getting organic cheese too.
We've been buying organic milk for about 8 years so I was quite excited to see organic glass jarred milk at our local co-op store. You pay a deposit for the jar and then return it to the store for a refund. You know the drill. The milk is from a local dairy and is hormone-free. Plus, it fits into that whole 100 mile diet thing. Not that I'm a strict locavore adherent but I'm trying to choose local when I can.
I'm very excited because we go through so much milk with the kids and I hate those plastic milk jugs. We use the 1/2 gallon milk cartons to hold food waste, but I thought I'd try out the glass and help support a local dairy.
