If it's 3000 years ago, why does the Bible describe Canaan as a "land flowing with milk and honey"? Doesn't that quotation predate 1000 BC?

The milk in the Bible is goat's milk, which is much easier to digest than cow's milk.

What makes you think that?

There are references to goat's milk, true, but there are also many references to sheeps milk and to camel's milk. And there are many references to milk in which the type is not specified. It's clear that they raised cows and calves. It's not reasonable to think that they didn't drink the milk thereof.

Gen 18:7... Who tends a flock and does not drink of the milk?
