*RESULTS WILL VARY DEPENDING ON FORAGE AND SEASON
There is a HUGE nutritional difference between milk produced by intensively pastured cows versus those that are not intensively pastured. Pastured cows produce milk which can have up to five times more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA is a type of fat that may prove to be one of our most potent cancer fighters and is not found in a grain-fed cow's milk. Milk from pastured cows contains an ideal ratio of essential fatty acids (Omega-6 and Omega-3) and has higher protein. Pastured milk will look a little more yellow than conventional milk due to higher levels of beta carotene, another good side effect of cows eating a grass-fed diet. In short, milk from pastured cows is better for people, not to mention, better for the cows who are simply doing what nature intended-
FULL JERSEY EFFECT
Our Jersey's A2/A2 Milk boasts 5.89% fat, 3.98% Protein, 16.08% Milk Solids and 137 mg/100g Calcium. When compared to the "local glass bottle milk" that equates to 23% more protein, 16% more calcium, higher milk solids and almost double the butterfat! There is more nutrition in each glass of milk, just as our customers want and now that we are 100% A2/A2- our milk should be gentler on digestion for those with milk sensitivities! Glass Bottles may be nostalgic, but why pay for Premium Packaging when our customers want Premium Milk instead?
Remember, our milk is NOT overly processed nor standardized so our component numbers may fluctuate throughout the year as our cows graze different forages in different seasons. Nothing natural stays exactly the same, but here at Nice Farms we give our supporters the "Full Jersey Effect." This means we do not remove any cream, protein, or calcium from our whole milk (and products made with our whole milk) to meet the Federal minimum standard definition of whole milk.
