OUR EUROPEAN TRADITION
The making of cheese began centuries ago. Like so many things surrounding the real foods we have come to enjoy, like curing bacon and ham for example, making cheese began from a need to preserve fresh milk in a form that could be kept without refrigeration and eaten later.
As time went by, cheese makers learned ways to vary the tastes of finished cheeses. Certain regions of the world have become known for certain types of cheese, like Gouda from Holland, Gruyere from Switzerland, Emmental from the Emmental region, to name a few.
The cheese makers of Simply Grassfed are artists working in the European tradition, harkening back to their forefathers and mothers in the old country.
All of our cheeses are made with raw organic milk. Pasteurized (even just heated above 104 degrees) dairy kills the beneficial microbes and enzymes that our intestines need to digest and assimilate the macro-nutrients that keep us healthy and strong.
Raw milk cheeses maintain the good characteristics of milk as it comes from the cow. These include myriads of the naturally present microbes in raw milk which aid in human digestion.
And, Raw milk cheeses tend to have more personality, a more robust flavor, when compared to cheeses made with pasteurized milk.
100% GRASS FED
Our Jerseys ONLY EVER EAT GRASS. NO Corn, NO Soy, NO Grains from genetically modified Round-Up Ready crops. NO Styrofoam. NO Baker’s waste. We think, as much as you, that this is important to our animal’s health as well as our children’s.
100% A2/A2 BETA-CASEIN PROTEINS
Our Simply Grassfed cheeses are made with milk from A2/A2 Jersey cows. That means that it contains 100% A2 beta-casein protein, which is more digestible and has other health benefits like - less likely to cause inflammation, stomach discomfort, gas, bloating, and diarrhea. Some people who are intolerant to dairy or lactose CAN and DO handle A2/A2 RAW cheeses with no symptoms.
BEST CHEESES FOR YOUR HEALTH
We start with the best A2 organic milk from their high milk-fat producing 100% grass-fed Jersey breed of cows. Then, we add ingredients we are familiar with that work the magic to make the great tasting cheeses you love.Then, we place it in the proper places to age it to perfection. So, that like all the other foods from Simply Grassfed, taste and nutrition jostle for first place.
