I have been reading about raw milk and am really keen on giving it ago but read about the Toodyay fires destroying the dairy up there. Can anyone tell me if they are back running now or is there someone else I should be getting in contact with who are as good as them?

*Not that I am thinking of drinking it, it is totally for our baths, k  ph34r.gif

Any help would be much appreciated, even a PM original.gif



Edited 'cause I can't spell! LOL

Here you go:

Thankyou for enquiring about wisebathmilk. My name is Neil Wiese and after much consultation and an enormous amount of planning and expense, it is my intention to supply to consumers like yourself a top quality supply of bath milk to the metropolitan area. We deliver direct to your door on Tuesday and Wednesday each week. Ultimately, we plan to provide this service on a more frequent basis, but we need to walk before we fly!
If you wish to contact me or receive bathing milk  please email wisebathmilk@yahoo.com.au or alternatively ring 0422942774 with details as follows:
1. Your name and phone number.
2. How much you would like on a weekly basis.
3. Delivery address.
Terms of receiving Bathing milk are below and form an agreement between all parties, by requesting bathing milk and/or receiving bathing milk it will be taken that all parties are in agreement as follows:
1.      The milk is supplied strictly for Bathing/cosmetic purposes only, any suggestion the milk will be consumed will result in the milk supply being withdrawn.
2.      The milk is of high quality and is refrigerated at all times being always handled at human consumption standards. Prior to delivery the milk will only have been in the farm milk vat and the refrigerated stainless vessel on the delivery vehicle.
3.      It is envisaged the milk will be delivered on the same day it came from the cow, or the following day and hence should last approx. 7 days if refrigerated at all times.
4.      Tender for milk will be strictly cash only, and correct change would be appreciated.
5.      Price will be $2.50 per litre for 20 litres or more; and $3.00 per litre for 19 litres and less. This price is interim and subject to change in the future.
6.      Containers provided will be filled on the spot, If needed 5 litre food grade containers are available at a cost of $1.50 each (They are carried on the delivery vehicle, are new, not cleaned or washed).
7.      All transactions are of a private nature, there will be no trading with businesses or corporations.
8.      Every attempt will be made to deliver at the same time each week, once-off delivery amounts do not assist in ongoing growth, so will unfortunately be given lower priority and supplied from milk excess once regular deliveries are done.
9.      In establishing regular runs every effort will be made to create consistency and reliability. Larger deliveries will be given higher priority so “pooling” will benefit all of us.
10.  The delivery vehicle can be phoned direct on 0422942774.
Having been raised on a cattle/sheep farm (that my grandfather operated as a dairy), I feel well placed to provide you with a top quality milk supply that will further improve as deliveries increase. I see this as a wonderful opportunity for the people of the metro area (and beyond eventually), to have a regular, high quality and very affordable supply of bathmilk delivered to your door.




You can also buy it from Precious Organics.  Oh, and Alive Organics on Walter Road, Bayswater sell the Cleopatra's Bath Milk, but it's stored in plastic and a few days old already by the time it gets to WA.

From what I've been told, Avon Valley won't be starting up again.  (I'm pretty sure they had the last stock of Ayrshire cows in WA with no more sperm allowed accross the border).  sad.gif   This other milk is from Jersey cows, which is OK, but not a patch on Ayrshire.

All good Mel. Had our first delivery from this mob on Tuesday.  That day's milk delivered on time,  fresh, in stainless steel, refrigerated truck.  You supply your own glass bottles if that's what you want or if you don't mind plastic, they can use theirs.  

(Just perfect for cool, refreshing baths)  original.gif

I know this is a super old post but I just joined and was wondering if anyone on here is still active?

And if by some freakish chance that people are active, does anyone have an updated contact for the bath milk delivery mentioned above? As i did actually email the address given and it bounced back. I kinda expected it but considering what a hard time I'm having in finding bath milk in Perth, i was willing to give it a go.

*fingers crossed*

There has been work done in the health & consumer affairs industry to call out the BS bath milk.  I'm out of date with it all as I'm not working, but I'm pretty sure the states have banded together to get it all stopped.

There is a coroner's report of a little boy who was drinking the milk and died as a result of an infection. I would caution anyone considering it to read that report first.

Why on earth would you want to sit in a bath of unpasteurised milk?

I shudder to think of what infections and bugs it'd have.

Unpasteurised milk can contain deadly pathogens - see aforementioned coroner's report.

Consequently, it would be unsuitable for consumption or use with small children who might mistakenly assume it was drinkable, seeing as how it looks like safe milk unless you've got a microscope.

If you want raw milk, buy a cow and milk it yourself - that hasn't been banned.

They don't. They want to drink it because pasteurisation is 'bad'.

Pasteurisation was a major scientific breakthrough saving countless lives. It is for the best that you haven't been able to contact a supplier.

One thing I love about EB is that it's on the side of science.

Jenflea, "bathmilk" is sold labelled as a product not for human consumption (like WD40 or liquid soap is also not for human consumption) so it doesn't need to be pasteurised and meet food standards, because it's not sold as food and not covered by the food standards code.

People buy it and drink it anyway.

Consumer law is catching up and going the way of requiring bathmilk to contain added substances to make it undrinkable.  I'm rusty in this as I haven't been working so I cant be sure if this got through the legislative changes or became national.

Ah yes. Before there were Tide Pods there was raw milk.

We humans are a daft lot.

That was pretty typical of 2010 EB though.
All about  the freebirthing, antivax, and raw milk...

MCN were huge! People were spending $50+ on one nappy with a ruffle bum and some embroiding saying 'Princess'. A $50+ on a bespoke poo catching, bum mit.

I got in on the MCN!  Though I'm sure I didn't pay$50 for one.  Used them too, mostly.  I only stopped when DS was diagnosed with ASD and I couldn't deal with everything going on.

I used to read the homebirth threads as well.  Decided while in labour (and not fully present with reality) with DD that I should stay home and not go into hospital.  My mother was banging about the kitchen making a racket so I was then happy to get out of there.

I got into it too but I was China cheapies and by #2, the upkeep was too much.

I bought heaps but never the frilly embroidered ones.

People were buying it to drink.

Because the safety that pasteurisation provided is/was seen to be bad.

It seems to be aligned with the appeal to nature fallacy- that "natural" = safe and "unnatural/processed" etc = unsafe.

Yep, all the horrible natural nasties are just so much safer.
