Why we don’t drink organic milk

I know that among the real food community, organic foods can be very popular.  However, there are two reasons that we don’t buy organic milk.  One is the cost.  The other is that the organic milk in our stores is always ultrapasteurized.  Not only do I find ultrapasteurized milk unpalatable, but also the higher heat makes many more changes to the milk than the lower heat of normal pasteurization.  Thus, I consider non-organic but RBST-free milk to be more natural and less processed than ultrapasteurized organic milk.  I’m sure that if I bought milk from a source other than the normal grocery store I could find some that is not ultrapasteurized and organic, but that’s simply not an option for my family right now.
