Local Farm Milk is certified raw milk, pure and simple, with no additives. Every month, samples of Local Farm milk are laboratory tested by the State of Connecticut to insure the quality of the milk. Because it has not been pasteurized, it contains many healthful vitamins and enzymes that would otherwise be destroyed. For example, raw milk has 33% more vitamin C than pasteurized milk. Enzymes found in raw milk aid digestion, and many individuals who have been diagnosed as ‘lactose intolerant’ are able to drink raw milk with no problem!
Local Farm Milk is creamline milk. Because it has not been homogenized, the cream naturally rises to the top. This luscious cream can be poured off for making butter, ice cream, whipped cream or to put in your choice of hot beverage. Or, the cream can be mixed back into the milk to make whole milk.
Local Farm Milk is Jersey milk. Jersey cows produce the richest milk of all the major dairy breeds. Milk from Jersey cows has more protein and calcium than any other milk on today’s market.
Local Farm Milk is environmentally friendly. Requiring less processing and fewer transportation miles from our cows to your table, our milk requires less energy to market. It is available in returnable, reusable glass bottles. Because Local Farm cows feed on Cornwall hay and pasture, they help keep nearby farmland open, and contribute to the rural character of the area.
