Raw Milk Buying Club in Cambridge MA

I came across this group a little while ago:


I joined their mailing list, to learn how it worked. Here's the deal:
  • Members place orders on a shared spreadsheet.
  • Every other week, someone (it rotates) drives to Oake Knoll Ayrshires at Lawton's Family Farm in Foxboro, MA to pick up milk (and sometimes a few other things). Then other members drive to the picker-upper's house to get their stuff.
  • There are no surcharges or fees.
  • Money transfer is done via PayPal.
It sounds like it's working out well. If I didn't already have a great source of raw milk, I would be doing it.

If someone reading this blog joins, I'd love to hear about it. (Post a comment or email.)

We drive out to W. Mass every so often to visit Misty Brook Farm, but not often enough... they have milk of course but what really makes me happy are the glorious eggs!

It's nice to have an excuse to drive out to W. Mass...although, you know, no excuse is really necessary!

I'm a fan of Upinngil farm, too. (It's in Gill, MA.)
