I don't know much about the purported health benefits (my guess is that some of them are real, certainly not all of them). But I do know that the raw milk I drink and that is produced at Hendricks' Farms -where I work- tastes A LOT better than any pasteurized milk I've ever had. So much better, in fact, that after a couple of decades of not drinking milk regularly I currently drink about one quart per week. I'm a sucker for stuff that tastes great.
My main man Miguel Cervantes was certainly not wrong when in Don Quixote he wrote (in Spanish, of course) "the best sauce in the world is hunger" but I think magnificent flavor makes a pretty fine sauce too.
The risks of drinking raw milk are real, so make sure you know who is producing the raw milk you buy. Poke around the dairy and make sure it's clean. Check to make sure the cows' udders are being sanitized before milking and that the milking room floor is kept hosed down. Due diligence is required.
Raw milk's the rave? Demand grows despite risks
