Do you want raw milk delivered to your doorstep in Cambridge or Somerville? Or to some other neighborhood, perhaps? If so, please read on.
A friend brought to my attention a new raw milk buyers' club:
Mr. Tarzan (aka MrTarzan.com)
100% grass-fed organic raw milk in glass bottles ($4.50 per half-gallon, no mention of deposit), grass-fed yogurt, and free-range organic duck eggs, delivered to your door. No membership fee, $2.50 delivery charge per order. If you are consuming small-to-moderate quantities of raw milk, this is significantly more affordable than existing raw milk clubs.
Here's the catch: At the moment they plan to deliver within a 15-minute radius of Waltham, MA. Unfortunately, my neighborhood of Cambridge/Somerville falls just outside that radius.
I've communicated with Mr. Tarzan himself (Mel Oktay) and told him that I thought I could drum up sufficient demand in Cambridge and Somerville.
If you live in Cambridge or Somerville and you would use such a service, please LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW indicating how much milk you might order per week, and approximately where you live (neighborhood or major intersection is fine if you don't want to leave your home address). Leave contact info, if you like; or when you leave your comment, set it so that you will receive email notification of follow-up comments.
If enough folks leave comments, then it will be worth Mel's while to deliver to us!
