Yup my 3, 5, 6, and 9 year old plus DH and I drink raw cows milk from our own cow. It was how me and dh were raised and everyone in our family was raised with raw milk straight from the cow. So many people are against raw cows milk but to me nothing is better. I can't stand milk from the store and my kids don't like it either.

BUT I don't like milk anyway, lol My grandparents had a working dairy farm and the way they milked the cows turned me against milk at a very early age, lol

I personally think if anything it's a lot better for you.  Because it doesn't have the pasteurizations and all the hormones that store bought milk has.  And once your body gets used to raw milk it's a lot healthier for your stomach and intestines.  Also has the good fats and enzymes and probiotics that pasteurization and hormones kill.  You can also make kefir with raw milk and kids can drink smoothies too.

Just curious, why would people be "against" raw milk? What's the difference, especially if it's fresh straight from the cow?

I've heard it's better for you, too. I would try it if I had access.

Pasteurization kills bacteria. There can be bacteria in the milk that can make you sick . But in my entire life of living on the farm and in my town I have not heard of one person getting sick from their milk.

Awesome. SO was raised on raw cows milk too but as an adult he's lactose intolerant. My kids and I have been drinking raw goats milk for the last 4yrs or so and SO was happy to find he could drink goats milk without an issue. And since I make all kinds of dairy products with it he can now enjoy ice cream, cheese and yogurt again without an issue.
