Fresh milk in southern Maine/NH ?

IWantFood Dec 19, 2009 05:09 PM

Does anyone know where I can find fresh milk in the southern Maine or NH area? By "fresh", I mean made by a local farmer or creamery, not too long out of the cow, which I suppose means unpasteurized. Would prefer pasteurized fresh milk, but I don't know if such a thing exists.

Anywhere from Portsmouth/Dover, NH; up to Scarborough, ME; and as far west as Sanford, ME.

      We get our milk delivered from them and you pay more but the milk tastes great.

        I second the Harris milk recommendation but also want to mention Brookford Farm in Rollinsford, right between Dover and South Berwick - their milk is raw, not pasturized, but the flavor and quality is just absolutely unbelievable, organic, grass-fed Jersey cows. They also make a pasturized yogurt that is so good I feel like a creepy evangelical person talking about it, it is just that amazing.

        A great resource for finding specific farm products in Southern ME/NH is Seacoast Harvest: http://seacoastharvest.org/

          Thanks for the suggestions. Tried Harris Farm coffee milk a little over a year ago and didn't care for it at all. Perhaps their plain milk is better. Went to Brookford Farm recently and loved their milk (and yogurt, and cheese....).

        I would give Laschi Brothers Greenhouse/Farmstand a call. Don't know if they're still open (they were thru Christmas); they'll certainly be back for Valentine's Day.

          Okay, so definitely North of what you asked for, but Bisson's in Topsham, ME is AWESOME.
          Great meat (be sure to note the cows grazing across the street, ha.) and raw milk. MMmmm. Also that wonderful non-nonsense attitude. Ah, Maine.
