People often comment about how good our milk tastes. There are several reasons why our milk tastes so good. The first reason is that we monitor every step of the production of the raw milk itself, from the planting and harvesting of the crops, to feeding and milking the cows and everything in between. So, we begin with an extremely high quality raw product. Secondly, our method of processing the milk, “vat pasteurization,” allows the true taste of the milk to come through. This type of pasteurization takes time, as the milk is heated slowly to 146 F over 35 minutes, then held at that temperature for another 30 minutes before being bottled.
