FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Tell me more about unprocessed milk!
Unprocessed or raw milk is not pasteurized or tampered with in any way. It’s nature’s perfect food! Raw milk is an all-in-one source of nutrients and vitamins. Plus, it comes with enzymes and carrier proteins so 100% of every nutrient is absorbed. (Check out realmilk.com for more information!)
What does A2/A2 mean?
A2/A2 milk comes from cows that produce only the A2 protein. A mutation in cows led to cows producing milk with the A1 protein, which research shows can be harder to digest. The A1 protein can often be the root cause of many milk allergen problems.
Countless studies prove that grass-fed dairy and meats have more antioxidants, higher levels of nutrients and vitamins, better fat quality, and less saturated fat. It’s not only more natural for the animals to be fed without grain but it’s healthier for you to eat!
Do I need to bring my own container?
Yes! Minnesota allows on the farm raw milk sales if customers bring their own container.
Why must milk be reserved ahead of time?
Milk lasts about 9 days in the fridge, depending on jar cleanliness! To best keep jars clean, run them through the sanitize cycle of a dishwasher, or rinse with a food-grade bleach solution.
How long does the milk last?
Due to the size of our herd, we ask that milk drinkers call/text ahead to reserve milk. This ensures your order can be filled when you visit the farm shop. The earlier milk is reserved, the more likely we can fill your order!
Can I schedule a standing reservation for a certain day of the week?
Yes! If desired, customers can request a standing reservation, where a set amount of milk is reserved for them for a certain day of the week. This way, you only need to communicate when to cancel a milk reservation.
What if I need to cancel a reservation?
Due to the fresh nature of milk & food laws, we do not bottle or store milk for later day pick ups. The sooner a reservation is canceled, the more likely milk can be resold and not wasted! If you are a no-call/no-show twice, we will be unable to reserve milk for you in the future.
