How Long Does Raw Milk Last?

Wow, Raw Milk is a Wonderful food, and it is completely different from the Pasteurized milk you buy in the store. Even the story on How Long Raw Milk Last is really hard to believe, but it all comes down to how our Forefathers had raw milk and they lived Healthy Lives.

So why does Raw Milk have to be illegal in a lot states? I guess over the last 160 years the Government and Business world started realizing they can make animals Grow fast, and produce more milk by feeding Chemicals. And when using Chemicals the milk isn't Human-safe, so they have to Pasteurize it, so people don't get sick of it.

After the last years, more and more people are realizing they need to take their own health into their own hands. Most doctors just tell their patience to take more Medicine, or try a different medicine, which eventually the Human Body can’t take more medicine and then get sick, and the doctors cant do much about it.

Now I encourage you to take your and your Family’s health in your own hands, and I am here to tell you it is possible without much stress or hard work. It’s just done by using Common Sense and Eating food that were raised from the ground, and food that was not Processed, Pasteurized, and simply fed without any Chemicals, Hormones, Soy, and Antibiotics.

Here at Clearview Valley Farm our foods are almost all raised on our Family Farm, and you can trust the food is raised without Chemicals, or any other harmful products. Click here to see pictured of the Animals and see how the food was raised.

How to Make Raw Milk Last Longer!!

For Raw Milk, Colder is Better. Raw Milk actually never goes bad, but only Naturally sours, so as long as you can take the taste, it is safe.

Raw Milk likes it around 33-36 degrees. If it is so cold it should taste good up to 8-14 days, then after that it might turn slightly sour, some people don't mind that sour taste, but others don't like it at all.

If milk is around 38 degrees it wont last as long and might turns sour in less that 7 days after you receive it. But if it is sour, don't throw it away. There is a few stuff you can do with it.

*Here are a few things you can do with Sour Milk.

* Sour milk can be added to coffee as a creamer.

* Make buttermilk biscuits - just use sour milk instead of buttermilk.

* If you are too sensitive for sour milk, add some pure maple syrup, and make smoothies and flavored yogurt drinks.
* Make your own cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, or mozzarella.
* Make your own yogurt, kefir, or buttermilk (using different starter cultures for each).
* Use in bread, biscuit, cake, pancake, and muffin recipes.
* Use for scrambled eggs and omelets.
* Use for pudding and egg custard.
* Soak grains to reduce phytic acid.
* Marinate fish to improve texture and flavor.
* Use sour cream as a topping for baked potatoes and tacos.
* Add sour cream to homemade soups.

So if possible, keep your milk around 35 degrees, and it should last up to 10 days or more. Some people also freeze their milk, which is safe but I think it does loose some probiotics, and loose3s its fresh taste a bit. But freezing milk is certainly better for you, than buying the store-bought milk.

Does this info also exist for store-bought milk?
NO! Certainly not.

If store-bought milk goes sour, I would throw it out.
Note that "soured" is different than "spoiled." Commercially processed milk lacks enzymes and beneficial microbes that are important for the souring process. Without these components, old grocery store milk just goes bad.

But raw milk has the good bacteria to ferment by itself. Souring is a natural process where beneficial microbes gradually consume the milk sugars. As this progresses, the milk becomes more sour, thickens, and the "probiotics" become more prevalent. Ultimately, the milk separates into a thin liquid (whey), and clotted solids (curds).
