Milk is insanely expensive in Maine right now.
My favorite grocery store had milk the other day for $4.89 a gallon for 1% milk. This wasn't even the pricey organic milk we normally drink (that's $3.49 a 1/2 gallon right now) - or even branded milk.
The other grocery in town had it for $4.99 a gallon.
I'm thinking my dreams of owning a dairy cow one day might not just be a dream - but a necessity. We go through 2-3 gallons a milk a week. Sometimes 4. That means that $60 of my monthly shopping bill is just milk.
An article in the local paper said that right now the dairy farmers are making $1.99 on a gallon of milk. so $2 a gallon is going right out of my pocket into the grocery stores'. Nice.
I'm glad I'm a water drinker.
