Sometimes Fairytales Are Real
At Organic Pastures, located in Fresno, CA, lives a very happy bull named Cupcake. He was named Cupcake by the owner Blaine McAfee after she quickly realized that he was a very special bull. Bulls are mean (errrr), feisty, scary, and certainly rowdy… yet? Well, there are many that are. Meet Cupcake who is more like Ferdinand the bull than anything else.
Proudly at Organic Pastures, we are Certified Humane, USDA Organic, family-owned, and show love and compassion to our animals, customers, and team.Read More

The Human Gut Is Simple
When you take all things into account, the human body is very resilient. Even when you consume highly processed foods your body will more than likely “put up with it” for a while before it starts “falling apart”. When you feed your body processed, denatured food it will react and send you signals of discomfort. Over long periods of time; however, the body builds up health issues and major digestive problems. This is what has been reported to us over and over at events from consumers.
Raw milk is one of the easiest foods to digest. Your body knows EXACTLY how to digest it and will consume it quickly. When you drink unprocessed, raw milk your body will thrive and only react through complete digestion. This complete food will give your body the much-needed vital nutrition it needs to become strong and healthy. Enzymes, probiotics, healthy fats, proteins, vitamins, and calcium are just some of the noted essential nutrients found of plenty in organic whole raw milk.Read More

You may be shocked to learn how many adults no longer drink milk (flat out); furthermore, how many children are not offered milk every day. If you are not drinking milk, then what are you drinking to fuel your body for vital health? Soda? Supplemented products? Highly processed dairy-alternative products? In this blog, we are not just tackling the WHY, but the topic of HOW MUCH an adult should be drinkings (per day) to have improved gut health.
Adults need between 1,000 and 1,200 mg of calcium a day:
Consume a minimum of 3 cups of Whole RAW milk per day to meet daily nutritional needs
Raw cheese as a high-calcium density (one (1) ounce of raw cheddar cheese has equal values to seven (7) ounces of Whole Raw Milk.
Starting March 20th, 2019, all Clarks Nutrition and Natural Foods store locations in Southern CA will be offering their customers our high-end, nutrient dense, TRULY (365 days/yr) Grass-Fed, Organic Ground Beef 1 lb. (frozen) packs.Read More

Let us begin with saying, this raw recipe is a HIT! In our farming family, we raised our healthy farm babies on the Weston A Price and Nourishing Traditions- Sally Fallon recipe books. The books became part of our kitchen counter decor (keeping it real) We were constantly using the helpful and informative books as guides for each healthy meal (pre-baby, during pregnancy, while nursing, and to help nourish baby). Recently, one of our amazing lifestyle bloggers Bree @breeinghealthyoc/ shared her raw kefir tonic recipes. This recipe brought us WAAAAAYYYY back to the years of #feedingdembabies and wanting each bite to be nourishing and impactful. We also remember how this recipe was a daily meal (4+ months until about 15 months). It is a HUGE RECIPE WIN. You have got to give it a try!Read More

Organic Pastures is deeply committed to the safe production of high-quality raw dairy products. We proudly meet and EXCEED all required California state testing and #dodairydifferent with our unique Test & Hold Protocol. Our protocol is a three (3) step testing process that starts at the dairy (milking) level and ends with the final product (creamery). Under our Test & Hold Protocol, we test for E. coli O157: H7, Listeria, Salmonella, Campylobacter, Standard Plate Count, and Coliforms. Our family-owned business believes there is power in numbers and that is why we work closely every single day with our regulators and inspectors. As part of our plan, all milk from each day is assigned a unique “Lot ID", which provides accurate tracking of all milk batches. This allows us to efficiently connect our milk batches to all test results.Read More

Here at Organic Pastures Dairy, we feel like each cow is like our person pet. It is only fitting since our family lives here on the farm! “Hey Miss Ada,” says Blaine McAfee (Herd Health Manager and one of the owners) pretty much each and every single time she spots Ada out on her daily walk around in the pasture. To be even more honest, Miss Ada is probably called Miss Ada-May-Roo-Girl (or something to that note) because Blaine is known for her #extra personalized names. Sound familiar? Do you have a pet named Pete, but you actually have about a dozen #extra names to go with his name? Why treat our herd like pets? It is just how we have always done things differently here on the farm. They are too cute not to love a little #extra!Read More
