If you are a milk drinker, and you've never experienced milk straight from the cow (or goat), you're missing out.
But raw milk will make you sick, they say.
Raw milk from cows and goats that spend their days roaming a grassy field is not only nutritious but also, when collected with the highest standards of cleanliness, safe to drink. We take cleanliness seriously, from the animals to the equipment. And the result is pure, clean, healthy, delicious milk. In fact, there are indications that cow milk that hasn't been homogenized (the mechanical process of breaking up the fat in the milk so that the cream doesn't separate) is healthier than it's homogenized brother. Below is an excerpt from this article:
"The natural homogenization of goat milk is, from a human health standpoint, much better than the mechanically homogenized cow milk product. It appears that when fat globules are forcibly broken up by mechanical means, it allows an enzyme associated with milk fat, known as xanthine oxidase to become free and penetrate the intestinal wall. Once xanthine oxidase gets through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream, it is capable of creating scar damage to the heart and arteries, which in turn may stimulate the body to release cholesterol into the blood in an attempt to lay a protective fatty material on the scarred areas. This can lead to arteriosclerosis."
As with any food product, there is risk associated with drinking raw milk. You will have to determine if the risk is worth the reward.
You can purchase our fresh, raw milk directly from the farm.
Check out our Raw Milk FAQ page for more information on our cows, goats and milk. To answer the number one question we get - our animals have 24x7 access to pasture and hay, and are only fed a high quality grain to supplement their foraging. We feed based on how they look - not to increase production. The cows are fed a locally sourced, non-GMO, whole grain feed from Warren County. The goats are fed an extremely high quality conventional feed (we are not able to currently source a non-GMO feed for the goats).
Milk prices are as follows: Goat Milk $17 per gallon Cow Milk $13 per gallon A2A2 Cow Milk - $14 per gallon
Milk is available daily, but the quantity is limited, so we ask that you contact us at least 48 hours in advance to place an order. If you do place an order and make an appointment for pickup and fail to show, you forfeit your order - in other words, we do not hold milk past 24 hours unless it is previously paid for.
If you make an appointment to pick up milk that is already paid for, it is your responsibility you make an appointment to pick up your milk as soon as possible. We will hold your milk from that day. We will not provide you with fresher milk because you failed to show for your appointed time.
