Pasture Raised

Our animals live outdoors in the open air and sunshine on pasture all year round. It’s green when the weather allows for it. They have plenty of room to roam and are moved daily. Our dairy cows, beef cows, and turkeys are out on open pasture. Our chickens are in mobile coops, protected from predators.

100% A2 Beta-Casein Protein

All of our cheese is A2/A2 and contains 100% A2 beta-casein protein. What is A2 anyway?

Well, a few thousand years ago, cows in Europe were put under stress and started producing a new type of protein, the A1 beta-casein protein. All other mammals (humans, goats, buffalo, mice, camels, whales, etc) produce milk with 100% A2 beta-casein protein. Those cows made their way to America, and now basically all American milk has both A1 and A2 beta-casein proteins in it.

Science is showing that the A1 beta-casein protein can be harmful to our health, sometimes causing chronic long term illness. And, some people who cannot tolerate conventional dairy can handle A2/A2 dairy.

This is why we choose to make A2/A2 cheese. It’s for the love of cheese!

100% Grass Fed

OK, it’s not really just “grass” like it is in your front yard, it’s pasture. Our 100% grass fed and finished ruminant animals eat a diverse mix of grasses, legumes, and other plants. They eat fresh pasture in the warmer months, and dried pasture (AKA hay) in the colder months.

No Hormones or Antibiotics

Our animals are raised as naturally as possible. We do not use hormones; we give them the time they naturally need to grow. We do not give them antibiotics; it’s not needed when you have naturally healthy animals living outdoors with plenty of space and fresh air. In the rare case an animal gets sick, it does not heal from natural treatment, and is given antibiotics, that animal would not be used to produce our food.
