SO HAPPY TO FIND FRESH GOATS MILK IN PENANG
I had no trouble finding safe raw goats milk in California, or raw milk products in France, but I didn’t trust most of the raw milk (goat or cows) in Malaysia because they have had some problems in the past and one must be extra careful with food issues and cleanliness in a developing-world nation (and every where today).
EVERYTHING you put into your mouth has risks, but I feel much safer drinking this delicious fresh milk delivered cold to my door daily (about an hour after being milked), than eating ANY thing at the very popular food hawker stands here. (I have gotten sick from the hawker stands and eating Indian food here and Mozart got bad food poisoning from eating at her local school, so we don’t do these things any more).
GOING TO THE GOAT FARM
The best way to really check out goat milk or any food product you buy, is to go to the farm, meet the farmer who also drinks the milk with his family, inspect the milking equipment, hygiene, and ask many questions and check about test results.
That is exactly what we did. This goat milk is made in a beautiful, clean, sustainable, eco-friendly farm with a very responsible and knowledgable owner with very contented animals and workers.
ECO-FRIENDLY, INNOVATIVE GOAT FARM
I am on a raw goats milk list serve of people who have raised and drunk raw goats milk for decades. These wise and very experienced folks gave me lots of good questions to ask the farmer and we’ve been back a few times. We found out what tests have been done on the goats and milk, how they handle the milking equipment etc., all about the breed of goats and more.
The healthy goats are the Saanen breed, originally from Switzerland and imported from Austrailia. Unlike cow milk in stores, they get no growth hormones or antibiotics, so there is none in the milk.
