LET'S TALK ABOUT

Our Raw Milk

Raw milk is one of the healthiest foods you can feed your body. We are proud to have been in the dairy business since 1982 and been selling raw milk since 2019.

 

Our raw cow milk comes from the 60 A2A2 Jersey Cows that live on our farm. We machine milk them once a day with this machine and store our milk in these big tanks that keep cool the temperature to be exactly what it's suppose to be.

A FEW FACTS ABOUT

Raw Milk You May 
Not Know

Raw milk offers a quick way to make sure that kids are getting all the nutrients they need. Most kids love the taste of raw milk (and raw cheese!) and will drink it without hesitation.

Butterfat is an important part of the nutritive profile of milk. Milk fat contains all eighteen fatty acids, both saturated and unsaturated, critical for healthy skin and healthy digestion.

Milk is a source of complete protein including all twenty of the standard amino acids and all eight of the essential amino acids.

Raw milk contains all twenty-two essential minerals including calcium, chlorine, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, sulfur, zinc, iodine and other trace minerals. Raw milk provides a special enzyme for each of the minerals, so they are 100 percent absorbed.

WHAT ARE

A2A2 JERSEY COWS

Certified A2A2 Jersey Cows are cows that have been tested and approved to produce A2A2 milk. 

 

In the past 150 years a mutation took place in the protein chain of the Holstein cow. Because the Holstein produces such a huge amount of milk this breed has been bred into every other dairy cow breed to make that breed make more milk. This mutated (bad) beta-casein is called A1 beta-casein. A2A2 refers to old bloodline cows that do not have the gene for this mutated protein.

Think A1 bad and A2A2 good (or unmutated beta-casein). It was discovered is that this bad, mutated A1 Beta-casein is one of the two main culprits for lactose intolerance issues and that it may cause many other health problems as well.

VITAMIN C

Raw milk (but not pasteurized!) can resolve scurvy.

02

CALCIUM 

Assists in growing longer and denser bones

03

FOLATE

an important carrier protein completely inactivated during pasteurization

04

VITAMIN B12

Is an important  binding protein completely inactivated during pasteurization

05

VITAMIN B6

Animal studies indicate B6 poorly absorbed from pasteurized milk

06

VITAMIN A

Beta-lactoglobulin, a heat-sensitive protein in milk, increases intestinal absorption of Vitamin A

07

VITAMIN D

Present in milk bound to lactoglobulins, pasteurization cuts assimilation in half.

08

IRON

Lactoferrin, which contributes to iron assimilation, is destroyed during pasteurization. 

09

MINERALS

Bound to proteins such as calcium and iodine that are inactivated by pasteurization;

10

VITAMIN B2

Riboflavin, completely destroyed by pasteurization.
