Real A2 MILK
100% A2 raw milk from 100% grass fed cows
- Starting production late February -
We have selected a small group of our very best cows to produce a superfood to share with you. These girls are a mix of Friesian, Ayrshire and Jersey breeding and have been chosen for their ability to produce 100% A2 milk of very high quality.
What our animals eat is as important as what we eat. A cow's primal diet is a diverse range of grass types, supplemented by naturally occurring herbs, legumes and tree browse.
No GM - no soya - no grain - no antibiotics
Many people with intolerance to conventional dairy products find that they can consume A2 milk with no problems. The cows producing our milk have been independently DNA verified to carry the A2A2 gene, meaning their milk will contain 100% A2 protein and no A1 protein.
Why raw milk?
Raw milk is utilised by the body far more easily than pasteurised - because the many beneficial probiotics, enzymes, vitamins, fats and proteins have not been 'cooked' the human body absorbs them to maximum benefit.
Whilst we prefer to sell raw milk with all its benefits, we may also introduce a pasteurised range if there is enough demand. If you want pasteurised A2 milk please send feedback to email@example.com and we will see what we can do!
Why 100% grass fed?
Many studies have shown the beneficial effects of 100% grass/pasture feeding on the levels of important nutrients in the milk, including Omega 3's, CLA's and many vitamins including A, D and the elusive K2. The effect of the green leaf at the base of the food chain is amazing.
These cows graze naturally on the diverse pastures on our farm, in spring, summer and autumn. These pastures contain a range of grasses, herbs and legumes, and the cows choose their menu themselves! In the winter they are fed high quality haylage made from these same pastures, with absolutely NO processed supplements or grain. They are not pushed to produce high yields, as we want every litre to be as nutrient-dense as possible.
Very few farms feed their dairy cows a 100% grass diet, and most products marketed as grass fed often feed a grain supplement also.
We rotate the cows around the fields, using a system variously known as mob grazing / holistic grazing / adaptive grazing. This replicates the movements of wild ruminants and gives the cows constant access to a range of fresh forages, which maximises cow health and builds organic matter in the soil - in other words carbon sequestration... YES, managed correctly, cows are GOOD for the environment!!
