SO, LET'S BEGIN WITH THE OBVIOUS,
ALL MILK STARTS OFF RAW
We did not reinvent the wheel here. Raw dairy products are simply that - it’s milk that is unprocessed, whole, and living, with all of its probiotic bacteria. We produce the most delicious natural dairy products and meticulously prepare them your family can enjoy. Raw milk from grass-grazed cows is the most organic way dairy products can be produced. With a lot of extra love and care, we offer to you the world’s finest, organic, raw dairy products on the market.
BUT WHAT YOU TAKE IT FROM THERE IS THE CRAFT
IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS
From the farm’s beginning, miles of concrete were never in the plans- we carefully maintain our lush, green pastures through utilizing our land sustainability.
Water on our farm is never used for a single purpose. All of our operations recycle water used directly back into our soil,
which reduces the use of fresh water for pasture irrigation.
If one of our happy cows need care, we use organically approved treatments. As needed, we will treat our cows with homemade garlic tincture, immune-boosting homeopathic treatments, blends of several essential oils, and herbal tea.
No, seriously. It’s like a spa here!
Our family is honored to live and work on such bountiful and rich land. Our farm is proud of its organic roots, which began before the larger “organic movement” grew.
SO WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Our bodies thrive MOST on active, unprocessed nutrients because it is natural and truly organic. People who cannot drink processed, homogenized, or pasteurized milk can often drink and digest Organic Pastures (raw) Dairy products without any lactose intolerance symptoms! This is because active ingredients that naturally occur in (raw) milk, like the enzyme lactase, help our bodies digest and absorb raw milk, allowing our bodies to take full advantage of the numerous nutritional benefits of drinking milk. Cool, right?
ABOUT OUR TESTING PROMISE
We are deeply committed to the safe production of high-quality raw milk. Our company was the first to develop and implement a comprehensive Risk Analysis Management Program (RAMP) ten years ago and we continue to improve our food safety program as better technology becomes available.
Our company utilizes industry standard testing-technologies to provide extremely low risk, safe, and healthy raw milk. We achieve our high standards using a team approach, ensuring all risk elements are addressed from our grass to your glass. Every batch of milk is tested by three different entities: the Fresno County Health Department, California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), as well as a third party laboratory. As part of our food safety plan, all milking from one day is tracked by a unique “lot ID.” This allows us to efficiently connect our milk batches to all test results.
In consulting with industry lab specialists, we have identified an efficient and effective sample collecting method that allows accurate representative testing for each batch of milk. We collect 20 unique and individual samples from each lot ID and then combine the separate samples into one composite to be sent to all three testing labs. Each lot ID must be cleared of E.Coli O157: H7 and other bad bacteria by all three labs prior to product distribution.
