Organic Whole Raw Milk - Organic Pastures - half gallon
$11.99 64 oz
Healthy, happy cows produce the healthiest raw milk, and Organic Pastures milk is unprocessed, whole, TESTED, and living, with all of its probiotic bacteria. This milk is NEVER pasteurized (heated), homogenized (crushed), or otherwise altered so it is alive with fully active enzymes, a broad spectrum of naturally occurring beneficial bacteria, all 22 essential amino acids, 18 good fatty acids, metabolically available vitamins, immunoglobulins, minerals, antioxidants, and CLA.
Organic Pastures produces 100% USDA certified organic, Grade A, raw milk from their grass fed California dairy ensuring super premium quality.
USDA organic standards require that cows be pasture grazed just four months out of the year. OPDC goes far beyond this standard and grazes their cows on green pastures every day. In addition to green pastures, their cows are fed: a specially formulated organic mineral supplement, free choice salt and trace mineral blocks, high test organic alfalfa, and some sweet organic corn to keep them healthy and strong. A disease free life: a life with optimal health starts with a strong immune system - and raw milk is the finest immune system support food available.

About the Farmer
Summerhill Goat Dairy is committed to the health and well being of our goats. We have been verified as a Certified Humane® dairy and milk plant. This third party verification assures you that our goats are raised and handled right.
Our beautiful new dairy offers our goats lots of room to engage in their natural behaviors – running, jumping and playing. They love to explore and we are constantly trying to stay ahead of their mischievousness. Our kids are hand raised and individually cared for. They too spend their days free to run and play in social groups. Our large barns open up to the outside, ensuring that our goats always have access to dry shelter as well as the ability to be outside whenever they choose. No matter the weather, our goats are kept comfortable. Each barn has large fans that circulate the air and keep the goats cool in the summer; while the sides of the barn can be closed up to the keep the goats warm and dry in the winter.
What do our goats eat? Although goats are notoriously curious and will try out many tastes and textures (our paperwork, clothing, boots, etc!) they are very picky eaters. Goats are actually browsers, not grazers. Therefore, the majority of their diet consists of high quality non GMO alfalfa or oat hay. We ensure that the rest of their nutritional needs are met by providing a small ration of grain that includes essential nutrients and vitamins. Summerhill Dairy’s goats eat an all vegetarian diet – they are never fed any animal byproducts or soy products.
We understand that many of our customers are concerned about the prevalence of GMO’s in food today. Although our goats’ diet is primarily high-quality non-GMO feed, Summerhill Dairy is not non-GMO verified. But our milk has been tested by an independent lab and no GMO DNA was found in our milk.
Summerhill Dairy has explored and researched organic production. Many of the requirements are cost prohibitive, and we want to ensure that we are making the best decisions for our goats, our customers, and our employees. So at this time we are not certified organic.
