Raw Milk





True Raw Milk - Unpasteurized & Unhomogenized

Raw milk is milk that has been neither pasteurized nor homogenized. For maximum health benefits, taste, and quality our milk is produced by a grass fed herd and we operate following organic practices in a Grade A level dairy facility. We do nothing to the milk besides filter it, rapidly cool it, bottle it, and deliver it to our Pantry the same day. It just doesn't get any fresher! Whether you are interested in raw milk for its health benefits, its superior flavor, its freshness, or just to support your local farmer, you will not find a better source than from our well managed, clean facilities and our herd of happy, healthy cows.



Quality You Can Taste!

Raw milk is in a class of its own. The smooth, creamy taste of high quality raw milk is without par. We continue to operate under the requirements of a Grade A dairy and we work hard to make sure our milk conforms to the highest standards by going above and beyond the Grade A standards. Even those familiar with raw milk are astonished at the delicious flavor of our milk and the length of time it keeps. Our family of five can't get enough - we manage to drink a full gallon every day!



Organic

We are committed to producing the healthiest, most all natural foods possible. As part of that commitment, we follow all the USDA Organic practices (although please note we are not officially certified at this time). This means our cows are entirely hormone, antibiotic, and chemical free their entire lives. You can rest assured our milk is true, simple, all natural milk just as God intended.



Grass Fed, Grain Free

Going hand in hand with organic farming practices, our girls are outside as much as the weather will allow. All through the spring, summer, and fall they are outside grazing, brought in only a few hours each day for milking. During the winter they are fed organic grass hay we make ourselves here on the farm. They are still turned outside to enjoy the sunshine as often as possible. Being able to be outside, moving about and enjoying the sunshine helps keep our girls content and happy. We do not push our cows for high milk production and so do not need to feed any grain. In fact, we milk only once per day. The cows quite enjoy this system and it keeps them relaxed and happy. Happy cows produce the very best milk.



Health Benefits

The health benefits of raw milk are many and varied. Modern studies have shown that pasteurization diminishes many of the vitamins and minerals found naturally in raw milk - specifically manganese, copper, and iron as well as vitamins C and B6. They also show that grass fed raw milk contains higher amounts of omega-3s, and an excellent ratio of omega-3s to omega-6s, which aids in the metabolism of omega-3s. Grass fed milk also contains 2-5x the amount of CLA as that of conventionally fed cows (CLA is a potent antioxidant that might be protective against heart disease, diabetes, and cancer). A quick Google search will turn up a wealth of other information on the health benefits of raw milk. (Source 1, Source 2)

Chocolate!

From our raw, organic milk we add a chocolate syrup we make from fair trade organic cocoa and organic sugar. This combines to make a rich, smooth, creamy, organic chocolate milk of unparalleled flavor.
