I tried searching this site as well as Google but couldn't find what I was looking for. Dairy doesn't seem to bother me so I had a question about cheese. A vendor at my local farmers market sells a Raw Milk Cheddar and an Aged Sharp Cheddar (Aged... (more)

First of all, just so you know, I am pro-raw milk. But this post HERE actually questions some of the Paleo diet beliefs - no dairy. Basically, if you have anything against raw milk I would like to hear your N=1 (actually, I do not know what N=1... (more)
I've been picking up raw milk lately to supplement my regular milk consumption. After a few weeks, standard homogenized milk has begun to take on a sour, vaguely rotten flavor that I never noticed before. Has anybody else experienced this? If... (more)
