We moved here from VA. We've found NC to have a much higher propensity for being a nanny state.

Does anybody have a private contact they message me with that sells raw milk? We drink 6 gallons a week and have for 3 years. It's an underground market here even though it's open in other states.

And on that subject anybody know where I can get a great smokey medium rare hamburger in Wilmington NC? The ban on medium rare hamburgers is beyond pathetic.

while I do not know of a milk supplier you might
go to the river front farmers market on saturday and ask around .

ask at Carolina farming on Market street and do a little search on this site,
seems like something was posted within the last year or two.
good luck!

The owner of the New Bridge Organic Market in Jacksonville seems sympathetic to the idea of raw milk but cannot sell it. Perhaps they would refer you to someone.

Wilmington is not that far from SC, which allows the sale of raw milk. Odds are one of the organic Meetups in Wilmington is already quietly importing it. Get to know people and keep asking around. Or make your own trips to SC.

@Sean_CLT, yes I had to drive to SC to pick up 12 gallons few weeks ago. next time I'm buying 18. I prefer to support local farmer though than an SCer based on principle.

@goldenage1--- thanks for that resource I had not checked it and will do so now.

Dad6Kiddos--

I admire your dedication. I noticed elsewhere, that you said you freeze the milk. How do you do that without the containers cracking when it expands? I'm just curious, and not planning to try it.

They don't expand as much as a coke can....but it's pretty close haha. Have never had a prob. In fact I'll request them in the future--- great idea--- to cut it short 1 cup for each container.

I don't know about the milk, but I can tell you about the burgers. North Carolina just changed the law on cooking burgers. There was an article in Star News about it a while back.

Good news for those who like burgers rare | StarNewsOnline.com
