Our milk is raw and whole. It has cream that rises to the top and it’s deep yellow from the grass that makes it.
Our Jersey cows live on pasture day and night through the growing season and are 100% grass-fed. They are managed intensively through planned rotation to provide them with the optimal nutrition, so that they can make the most nutritious milk. In this process they build topsoil, sequester carbon in the ground and live to the full extent of their being. In the winter they eat dry and fermented hay. They always get sea salt and minerals to complete their diet.
Our milk is USDA certified organic by the NH Department of Agriculture Markets and Food. That means we adhere to the standards set forth by the National Organic Program including and beyond: no antibiotics, hormones, synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and no GMOs. Being certified also means to implement plans for soil nutrient management and improvement, conservation and biodiversity. All of this contributes to a healthy environment, delicious flavor and ultimately happy lives for all of us.
