Response to where can i buy goat's milk

You can buy goat's milk in stores. The plant we ship to, Jackson Mitchell, makes Myenburg canned goat milk. Here is their link: http://www.meyenberg.com/

Its concentrated so you need to add water, I personally have not tried it, however, I have been told that fresh milk beats it any day. Also try the health food stores. Many folks will sell bottled goats milk to stores. Hope this helps.

In VA its Trails End farm which supplies VA/NC In Ohio it will be Caprine estates or Willow Run Dairy. In CA its Redwood Hills.

Try placing a wanted ad in your local newspaper. Farmers' Co-op (or local equivalent) may know of someone locally with milk goats.

I use to sell my goats milk to the Veterinarian in town, and I was always getting calls from people, who the vet referred to me, about buying goats milk. So, you might try your local veterinarian to see who might be suppling to him. In His Grace, Sissy

You can buy at any grocery store. I like to buy from the farmer, but she lives almost an hour away, so most of the time I pick up GM at the store right next to the whole milk. Debbie

Super Wal-marts have fresh goat's milk, so do most larger Kroger stores, in the dairy cases.

Annie, have you checked the outdate on the Super's goats milk?? What they sell I would not by any stretch of the imagination call "fresh" goats milk. It is highly processed goats milk and it will be fine for soap making but is essentially a disgrace to "fresh" goat's milk.

You can buy powdered goat's milk - From Nature with Love - I use it in milk bath and it works fine.
