Whole, Raw Milk. The milk you remember.
“Without milk, there is no ice cream. Without ice cream, there is no joy,” said everyone everywhere forever. It’s also true of yogurt, cheese, kefir, and more!
We have milk! Our diverse herd of dairy cows eats fresh green grass during the spring, summer, and fall seasons, and we supplement with the deliciousness of fermented grass, hay and some grain the rest of the year. If you add up what they eat, it’s a lot! They eat 4 – 6 pounds of grain every day, 45 pounds of baleage, and (from May to October) about 90 pounds of grass. They wash it all down with 8 to 15 gallons of water every day! (This is why they’re so big. You know they’re big when they step on your foot, which is an occupational hazard around here.)
In the spirit of diversity and tastiness, our herd includes Jerseys, Brown Swiss, Holstein, and Line Backs. Having different breeds means we can balance the butterfat and volume of our milk. We love offering a balanced whole milk product with just the right amount of cream: not too rich, but enough to be delicious. As a bonus, all that deliciousness contains fat soluble vitamins, such as A and D, which our cells need to be healthy. So drink raw milk! It’s good for you.
We bottle our own, and sell it unpasteurized, never homogenized, and raw. All we do is filter, chill, and bottle it. You can buy it in stores across Maine– just look for our logo. If you don’t find it, ask your local store to get some quick! Our raw milk is also used in the award-winning cheeses and yogurts of our cousin’s company, Tide Mill Creamery.

Our milk is also popular with other local cheese and yogurt makers who use it as a premium ingredient.
