Raw Goat Milk Now Available at Lassen’s Natural Foods
October 14, 2011 Written by LaurenJ
My Mom called me this afternoon and exclaimed “Lauren, I have great news!!!”. ”What? What?” I asked, thinking maybe she had won the lottery based on how ecstatic her voice was. ”Lassen’s is selling raw goat milk! Can you believe it?”
Ok, this was not as exciting as winning the lottery, but comes pretty darn close. Up until now, it was nearly impossible to find raw goat milk in California. Sharon Palmer of Santa Paula used to supply raw milk to Rawesome in Venice, CA, but since the August 2011 FDA raid, this is no longer an option. People ask us all the time if we sell our raw goat milk, but we do not.
Luckily, now there is a supply: Claravale Farm raw goat milk is available at Lassen’s in Thousand Oaks (2857 East Thousand Oaks Boulevard, Thousand Oaks, CA 91362; (805) 495-2609) … and perhaps at more of their locations (please comment if you find it elsewhere). The milk is a bit pricey at $7.29/quart, but since it’s practically liquid gold it’s well worth it.
Let’s all raise our glasses to Lassen’s and Claravale Farm!
More coming soon on the benefits of drinking raw goat milk and the “What’s all the fuss about (raw) milk?” event I recently attended hosted by the Weston A. Price Foundation.
