Due to recent cease and desist from VA Health Dept and VDACS we are no longer offering free milk to the public for donation. All raw dairy will be distributed via a herd share agreement. Please contact us if you would like more information.
Why drink RAW milk?
Unlike pasteurized milk, fresh raw milk contains the enzymes critical for the absorption of minerals like calcium. If you want healthy teeth and bones, you won't get them from drinking pasteurized milk!
Lactose intolerant? You'll be excited to know that most people who are allergic to pasteurized milk, can drink raw milk without any allergic reactions.
How should I handle raw milk?
Always keep your milk chilled. If you have some distance to travel, or stops to make before you arrive home, it's imperative that you keep your milk at refrigerator temperature - treat your raw milk like it's ice cream!
Does freezing damage raw dairy products?
Freezing puts raw milk products to sleep and has little effect on the important health benefits that raw dairy products provide. Enzymes and bacteria are fully active when they awake for thawing. Some vitamins are reduced by trace amounts after being frozen. The flavor is affected slightly by this and is not always apparent. If we have extra raw milk we always freeze it to use for our own consumption later. We use one gallon freezer bag for a 1/2 gallon of milk - this helps to keep the bags flat for stacking in the freezer.
