While waiting for the kettle to boil this morning, I was idling and reading the label on the bottle of milk and was struck by the declaration: "Permeate free, made in WA". Here's a shot of the label for proper context:
It's clear that they want to state that the milk is produced in this state, but it sounds odd to me to say that milk is made — I've always associated that with products that require at least a nominal amount of manufacturing/processing (e.g. butter, cream, yoghurt).
For the raw produce though, I can't really recall anything using made but more specific terms like grown, harvested, farmed, raised, etc.
So in this context, does anyone has a suggestion what might be a more descriptive, or more appropriate word? The best I can come up with is milked but that sounds awfully clumsy.
Alternatively, if people have milk bottles from their side of the world that say something similar, then it could just be me that thinks it's a bit clunky.
