There seems to be a lot of action lately around raw milk and related products over at Figueroa Produce, my favorite modern caveman food supply establishment. They have expanded their product line to include Caravale Farms raw Jersey milk and cream:
I have had milk from jersey cows before, and I can tell you that if you like milk, you haven't lived until you try pure Jersey Milk. I don't know what those jersey cows have going on that makes their milk so delicious, but it is definitely an experience! That, combined with this milk being raw, makes this stuff a true delicacy.
And, as an aside, it's a true delicacy that you won't find at that big expensive national organic supermarket chain store that no longer sells raw milk, for reasons completely unrelated to the wholesomeness of the product, and in spite of the growing demand for it as more and more people realize how much better it is for you than regular milk.
In addition to the Claravale Farms products, they have expanded their Organic Pastures section as well. Now they carry raw butter, raw cheese (which you can see the edge of in the cream photo above) and I think a few other things I'm forgetting about.
What's all the fuss about raw milk, you ask? If you live in the L.A. area, I have a great way for you to find out: the folks at Fig Produce are hosting a special presentation (with free samples!) by Organic Pastures Dairy. This was supposed to have happened a few weeks ago, but got canceled. Happily, the Raw Milk Event has been rescheduled for Saturday, July 17th, at 5:30 p.m.
The not-so-great news is that it looks like I will not be able to attend. I am very disappointed, not only because I wanted to see the presentation myself and taste the samples, but also because my earlier post on the event seemed to generate some real interest, both over at Modern Paleo and on the OEvolve Google group.
Since I hate disappointing my readers, I am putting out an open call for a guest blogger to attend for me, and write about the event. If you would like to cover the Raw Milk Presentation, and have your guest post appear both at Modern Paleo and at my regular blog, Creatures of Prometheus, please email me thru (my first name)DOT(my last name)AT gmail DOT com.
You don't even need to have your own blog, or any blogging experience per se. All you would need to do is attend, take some pictures, ask a few questions (which will be provided in advance) during the Q and A, taste the samples, and write up a short report. I would be more than happy to help with resizing and editing the photos for the final blog post, if that's not in your bag of tricks.
Also, I would prefer to have someone who shares either (or preferably both) my Objectivist and/or Paleo views of things in general, if possible.
Remember: free samples! Spread the word!
