So, in keeping with slowly trying incorporate more fresh, ethical and organic stuff into my life, I’ve fallen in love with Elgaar Milk. (Sorry for those of you who are dairy free!) And you can imagine just how happy I was when my husband brought it home off his own volition! He’s not anti-organic or anything, but he can be skeptical at times. So when he came back all excited about Elgaar milk, well, I couldn’t help but get excited too.
Elgaar products include fresh milk, cream, cheese, butter and yoghurt. They’ve been certified organic since 1991 so I’m guessing they know they’re organic stuff. They predominantly use Jersey cows, (who in my opinion are the cutest of cows save the Highlands Cow) and they even name each one.
The milk is pasturised which means there’s this yummy layer of cream on the top. Oh, and did I mention that the milk comes in a glass bottle which is returnable to the company? There is something lovely about pouring milk out of a glass bottle. Really, really lovely. Not to mention much better for the earth and your body than plastic. And while you can return the bottle to them, the bottle itself is a really beautiful bottle which I, personally, am keeping for my tomato sauce that I’m planning on making next month.
Further to their milk being delicious, they also offer their land for you to carbon offset your emissions which is pretty generous. You’re then allowed to come and view your offset which a) gives me another excuse to go to beautiful Tasmania and b) gives me an excuse to go to the farm in person!
All in all this company is one worthy of support. They have a lovely outlook on what they do, are aware of their impact on the earth and they produce a beautiful product that is a pleasure to use. While we’re not big on dairy in our house, when we have it, we’ll be using Elgaar.

Tiny change for the day: if you can’t source Elgaar, try some organic milk. Yum!
