We are getting more customers for the raw goats milk every day. You seem to be recognizing the health benefits of goat milk. We are proud to be helping so many people.
Goat milk is the most consumed milk in most other countries. It is delicious and extremely nutritious and more easily assimilated by the body. It is interesting to note that goat milk is digested in 20 minutes, whereas, it can take up to 24 hours to digest cow milk giving that full, uncomfortable stomach.
In short: Goats milk is less allergenic, naturally homogenized, easier to digest, rarely causes lactose intolerance and is closer to mother’s milk than cow milk. Many mothers wanting to wean use goat milk as a nutritious alternative.
So that we know our milk is safe, we have our herd tested at the Agricultural Lab at UNH so we know they are tuberculosis, brucellosis, and Johne’s (chrones) free. These are the diseases that can be passed to people in milk, by having the herd tested we see no need to pasteurize our milk. Pasteurizing removes vital nutrients and there is some thought that pasteurization may cause so many allergies to milk and milk products.
Our milk is also tested by the State for bacteria and antibiotics. So far we are good!
