Our milk comes from Jersey Acres Farm in Sarasota. 95% grass fed 5% grain. Nice cream line and the milkJersey Acres farm logo never tastes grassy. She also has fresh cottage cheese

Here is some nutritional information on the milk from Jersey Cows:

JERSEY MILK PROVIDES EXTRA BENEFITS

If an adult consumes one quart of average milk daily, he or she will receive all the calcium, phosphorus, riboflavin, and fat necessary to maintain good health.

They will also receive one half the protein, one third of the Vitamins A, ascorbic acid and thiamine, and one fourth of the calories and minerals needed except iron, copper, manganese and magnesium.

The preceding statement is made assuming a person consumes average milk. Average U.S. milk is considered to be that which contains 3.69 percent milk fat and 3.21 percent protein. But, all milks are not alike. It is well established that various breeds of cows produce milks of different compositions.

Milk Composition: Compared to the other major dairy breeds, Jersey milk contains the highest levels of both protein and milk fat.

Jersey milk has over 18 percent more protein and 29 percent more milk fat in a given amount of milk compared to the average of all breeds.

Jersey milk also contains greater amounts of milk’s important minerals, particularly calcium. Calcium helps maintain strong bones and teeth. It prevents osteoporosis and other nutritional deficiencies. Jersey milk contains over 20 percent more calcium than other milks.

Milk is an excellent source of vitamins. Jersey milk has been shown to contain more Vitamins A and Vitamins B1 per liter than Holstein milk. In addition, Jersey milk has the highest concentration of B2 (riboflavin) than milk produced by other breeds.

What do these differences in milk mean for the consumer? When consumed in liquid form, Jersey milk is more nutritious. It provides more proteins and calcium than milk produced from any of the other dairy breeds.

We do get Organic Valley products and Matts OJ.
