nope I drink it straight from the container to the glass to my mouth. I never thought to boil it, we never did before when we grew up on it so it never dawned on me now.
Man it just has so much more flavor than the processed milk, I had forgotten how much better it tasted. I seriously would drink it all day long if it was econimical!
I talked with the farmer and he actually let me help "for old times sake" once when I stopped in so I know that the milk tank is kept at the proper temp (like about
34 degrees F) and twice filtered on it's way into the tank. The tank's emptied every 3rd day by truck and gets an acid wash for clearing milk stone and bacteria out. All standard practices (and a few more we didn't do with a 110 animals in our herd *oopsie*) He allows me to bring my container so I know that part's clean.
opening myself up to other risks I know. . . .but it's just wonderful drinking big gulps of milk agian without kringing about
