Local Spotlight: Working Cows Organic Milk

02 Nov

Yesterday I had the extreme pleasure of buying Organic Milk locally. Believe it or not, the small town of Slocomb actually has Alabama’s FIRST and ONLY organic dairy farm, Working Cows Dairy!

To explain the taste, organic milk has a much richer flavor than regular milk. It also has a certain kind of sweetness that’s difficult to explain. The level of creaminess is amazing, and I can speak from personal experience that it definitely tastes great in coffee and would likely do well for hot chocolate, too.

The downside to the organic milk is, of course, the price- I paid $3.99 for 1/2 gallon. To try the milk, though, I think it was worth it, though I think the price makes it difficult to continue drinking on a regular basis.

There are many benefits to buying organic food, and especially to buying locally. I say give the organic milk a chance if you haven’t already!

    I think the milk we have here is closer to organic than what is usual in the usa. it definitely tastes a lot different. like you said, the milk here has a stronger smell and flavor. the first time i tried it i thought it was ruined or something…not coz it was a bad smell but because it was so strong.
    it actually tastes really good though…rich and creamy and sweet like you said. USA milk tastes watery. maybe it also has to do with how much you pasteurize it?
    im happy to know slocomb offers good milk though!

      Even now, I’m still a little shocked that it even exists here. I can’t remember when I first learned about it, but it’s the idea that little podunk Slocomb, Alabama has the state’s first organic dairy farm that blows me away. Those chances are like one in a million.
