OK - I have been trying to tell myself that owning a dairy goat would be a better choice for my family than a cow so I went to the store and bought a carton of goat's milk. Mind you, I did this years ago and the milk tasted the same as this carton did.... the milk has a sour taste to me, not sweet. More like cow buttermilk "sour" not a spoiled sour... the sour is something I am not fond of but I have had many tell me that I would not be able to tell the difference between good goat milk (fresh) and cow's milk..... I really do not want to buy a milk goat if I do not like the taste of it. Is it just the store bought goat milk that taste that way? I do not have any neighbors that milk goats to be able to try it fresh.
