Farm Facts: Milk and Dairy….
Our plan is to purchase a “low-temp pasteurizer”, so that we can take this milk to the
Farmer’s Markets that we attend. In order to do this, by State Law, we must also buy a “bottle capper”. For these last two big items, we have enlisted the help of some investors. This all takes time, but with their help we will be coming to the markets with Richardson Farms dairy and creamery products soon!
“RAW MILK DAIRY”
Our new upscale “Raw Milk Dairy” is now open.
Raw Milk refers to unprocessed, untreated milk straight from the cow. The milk you buy from the local supermarket is a different substance altogether. It has been pasteurized, ultra-pasteurized, or homogenized. This liquid is not really milk. It is a chemically altered substance, heated to remove pathogens and bacteria and to prolong its shelf life. The resultant low-enzyme activity makes it difficult to digest, and the naturally occurring beneficial bacteria have been destroyed. The altered fat content renders the vitamins and minerals difficult to absorb.
Some studies show raw milk actually help protect against allergic reactions and boosts the immune system. It is an incredibly complex whole food, complete with digestive enzymes and its own anti-viral, antibacterial, and anti-parasitic mechanisms conveniently built into a neat package. It is full of both fat and water-soluble vitamins, a wide range of minerals and trace elements, all eight essential amino acids, more than 60 enzymes, and CLA (an omega-6 fatty acid). Raw milk is a delicious medicine!
Raw milk from healthy, pasture-raised cows is in a league of its own. These cows are happy, fed on their natural diet of grass and other cow-friendly foods. They enjoy access to sunshine and pasture grazing….not confined to inhumane conditions far from their natural environment and subject to enormous stresses. Our cows are never given any shots of BGH (bovine growth hormone) or antibiotics.
DON’T FORGET…YOU CAN COME TO THE FARM AND PURCHASE RAW MILK DIRECTLY FROM OUR DAIRY!
Buying Groups are Encouraged!!!
