Every Wednesday we get a delivery of fresh milk.
It is milked, bottled, and dropped off all in one morning.
Our Raw milk comes from Dutch Meadows herd of Dutch Belt Cows. This milk has a smaller fat particle and is known for its A2A2 protein. This makes for a sweet, creamy milk with a very robust flavor that you will not find anywhere else.
Here are a few important 'ingredients' you can count on finding in every bottle of milk we sell:
A2 Milk refers to the A2 type beta-casein proteins in the milk. Most cows in the country will produce milk with a mixture of A1 and A2 proteins. Milk from cows that produce milk containing a higher content of A2 proteins can be easier to digest, which may prove beneficial for those who are lactose intolerant and have milk allergies. A2A2 is always the best choice when it comes to dairy products!
Never exceeding 103 degrees for processing products. In milk it means that the only processing Dutch Meadows does is cool it down and put it in the bottle. How fresh is that? All raw milk is tested for bacteria, coliform, and pathogens. Some raw products have live and active enzymes and good bacteria added. It is said that raw dairy have a higher amount of good bacteria and enzymes to help the body build a stronger immune system, with that there is always a risk of bad bacteria but Dutch Meadows keeps it minimal with their farming practices and cooling systems.
100% of the diet of our grassfed animals consists of freshly grazed pasture and stored grasses (hay or grass baleage.) Free-choice minerals are also part of the diet for the health of the livestock.
