I'm a newbie to the local slow food movement and am trying to figure out where you all go for your milk? I've seen the homestead creamery milk at earthfare that is from virginia. do we have access to anything closer? i read online that organic valley milk has a farm in NC but it doesn't look like you can verify from the box if the milk they sell in charlotte is actually from that farm...any thoughts?
Thanks for your messages. I have confirmed with a rep from Organic Valley milk that if the box has the numbers
37-82 Milko or 37-087 Hunter Farms, then they are from NC farms. I asked if the milk is sent to a distribution center at some point out of the state and they said no. They say it is all processed and shipped from NC. So this may be the closest (non-raw) milk available...You can see from the website that they have two farms in Rowan County, one in Guilford, etc. http://www.organicvalley.coop/our-story/meet-the-farmers/southeast/
