Well, my mother told us we were lucky, (though they'd had plenty on the farm) and others said we were lucky when Thatcher snatched it.

I know some children had notes from doctors not to have it.

I got a bottle is Guernsey Full Fat in my Tesco Click and Collect order..When I got home I just had to drink half the bottle ( pint bottle )  So creamy and cold and good.  Nectar of the Gods !
Just came back after 2 weeks there.
Plenty of milk but not many large growers and exporters of tomatos now. Lots of locals have veg in a box outside for purchase and money in the honesty box.

Lucky?

I've always hated  fresh milk and refused to drink the milk we got at school. Of course there were children who liked it, so it was usually easy enough to get rid of it without having to resort to pouring it down the drain. Some of them might also have needed it because they weren't adequately fed at home, but I don't think there were many of those even in a school with a large slum area in its catchment area.

Milk in tea or on cereal or in custard etc is a different matter. But it's definitely one of those things that needs disguising!
I also hated School milk, always managed to give it away to someone who liked it. These days I buy semi skimmed long life milk to have with coffee and cereal. Bliss

Not so much Bliss for me today though.. Boo hoo, I've finished the lovely dreamy creamy fridge-cold Guernsey,  I put some in my coffee and I drank the last of what was left of it, and will be getting a pint in every order from now on.

( Hope you enjoyed your holday and your Guernsey milk, Hotton )

I remember the beer in Guernsey. Flowers. When the bill came for the meal, I said: what's this, we didn't have any flowers. Good stuff.

Not seen any Flowers beer in Guernsey but drank it in the UK. It is an old beer from the 1830's and was/is made in Stratford-on-Avon.
Liberation are the main brewers who own Butcombe in the UK. There was a micro brewery White Rock who went bust in August this year.
There is a new micro called The Little Big Brew company who make Nigel,Betty and Alen beers.
Seems they make Milk better than beer!

I don't drink milk on its own, only for cereal and tea/coffee.

Abel & Cole milk tastes better than Sainsbury's. I suppose it depends how the cows are fed.

I drink fully skimmed milk which my wife(Hardly drinks any) refers to as "coloured water".
I recently drank 2 cartons of goats Milk my daughter left after staying a while when we were recently away. Thought it was good as is the cheese.

I can't remember the last time I ate any cereal, and as for the  taste of the milk, I suppose if you drink skimmed milk,( your wife's quite correct Hotton )... it depends on how much water the cows have drunk ?

Abel & Cole skimmed milk is OK, if it's Sainsbury's I prefer semi-skiimmed.

I suppose they all let cows drink as much water as they want? Don't know if that'd affect the milk as most of it would be urinated anyway.

We still have a milkman who delivers to us three times a week.
Likewise and has never missed  delivering even during bad weather conditions .
