In full disclosure, the kids are the only ones who drink straight milk, and even they don't drink a ton (they are mostly big water drinkers), so I only buy 1/2 gallon ($3) every week or two. I also sometimes buy regular whole milk to supplement the raw stuff if I'm going to be cooking a lot with it (macaroni and cheese, custard, baking, etc). I buy a pound of raw cheese every 2 weeks and we buy conventional (Tillamook) cheddar for anything above that. The cottage cheese and yogurt we eat aren't raw, either. I just buy Nancy's cultured yogurt and cottage cheese.
