The dairy farmers should have stood together against the large supermarket chains...the price of a litre of milk is cheap enough without having to drop it to $1.00 a litre and some farmers have sold out to supply the generic brand...these are the scum bags here if they had stood firm all the dairies could have sustained their business....and don't whinge it is the consumer because the big supermarkets prices are so exhorborant on some basic products like sugar and flour so I understand that people have to save where they can. I will always support our farmers and buy only local brand name milk and fruit juice with no imported product added. One of our local large milk producers was using foreign fruit in their product and this affects our fruit farmers...check the product and what you are actually buying and make sure it is all Australian.

The best cheese is from Tasmania.

I get fresh local milk that hasn't been homogenized, full cream. You need to shake it up about the top inch is cream. Awesome stuff, I feel great from drinking it.

never go back to the regular processed stuff.

It's called hunter valley Udder farm where I'm living now. You pour a glass of the farm stuff next to a glass of the regular stuff and there is a fair bit of difference. The farm stuff is a nice slightly yellowy colour and quite thick in consistency, the regular supermarket stuff is plain white in colour and not thick and creamy. Once you are used to it, the farm milk tastes so much better, like heaps better. They only sell a few brands of the unhomogenised milk. Pauls goat milk and the pure organic milk in the carton are both unhomogenised. But none as fresh as the local milk I get. Delicious.
