Please Note: We will be transitioning to a seasonally-milked herd during the fall of 2019.

Benefits of Raw Milk

(Not Pasteurized)

It's more than Great Taste!

One of nature's perfect foods, milk is an excellent source of nutrients, enzymes and beneficial bacteria (lactobacillus, acidophilus, vitamins, calcium).

Pasteurization destroys vitamin B12, B6, beneficial bacteria (called probiotics), damages fragile milk proteins and enzymes, and promotes pathogens (pathogens which cause pasteurized milk to rot quickly, rather than sour naturally). Raw milk, contains beneficial bacteria and inhibits the growth of many food-borne pathogens.

When the enzymes are not destroyed by pasteurization, raw milk is easier to digest. Many people who think they are allergic to milk, or “lactose intolerant” may be able to enjoy the benefits of raw unpasteurized milk. Raw milk assists in maintaining a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract.

Probiotics, are the "good bacteria" found in unprocessed foods, in raw milk, and in some yogurts. Keeping a healthy balance of these good bacteria can aid in digestion, help with digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, and assist a healthy immune system in fighting "bad bacteria." When antibiotics are necessary, health care practitioners use probiotics to replace the good bacteria, destroyed by antibiotics along with the bad.

Raw milk also contains the enzyme phosphatase that helps in the absorption of calcium.

Raw whole milk from pasture fed cows is known to contain increased amounts of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), an omega-6 fatty acid over cows fed large amounts of grain. CLA is thought to provide some anticancer benefits.

For Additional information, studies and reading on Raw Milk, check out this great list of resources put together by NOFA, or the Raw Milk Use and Safety Fact Sheet compiled as a result of the National Raw Milk Use and Safety Summit in 2006.

We are a licensed, certified, organic dairy farm, and must meet strict requirements to sell raw milk. Our milk and dairy operation is regularly & randomly tested for bacteria and coliform and consistently exceeds all the requirements to sell safe, fresh, raw milk.

Please give us a call or stop by for some great tasting milk.
