I was misinformed. At some point, I read that raw milk contains lactase. As it turns out, this is not true! It is true that raw milk contains many live enzymes that are inactivated during pasteurization. But, what about lactase? I’ve heard many anecdotal stories from people who are lactose intolerant... but can handle raw milk. If raw milk doesn’t contain lactase, then why is that?

As we all well know, inflation is here and is likely to get worse. Ugh. This has kind of crept up on the farm. It’s been slow but is definitely real. This means that our prices will be going up.

There are days of astonishment, when we get something back from the processor and we’re surprised to see an ingredient like “spice extractive” or “organic herbs” on the label. What does that mean!? Most of the time, our processors are awesome and simply let us know. Then, we update the product on the website with accurate info. But once in a while, we are sorely disappointed.

In your leaky gut research, you’ll likely find lots of discussion around bone broth. Why? The answer is collagen! Collagen comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue. This is why the gelatin in bone broth is excellent for sealing and healing your gut.

The “sell by” date is a pretty new thing. It all started in the 1950s, when one little store started using it. By the 1970s, it was the norm. And today, I dare to say that perishable products without a date somewhere on the package won’t sell nearly as well as those with one. There’s a variety of different wordings for dates that go on food packages. As a consumer, it’s very important to understand the difference between them...

The Miller’s team is growing, and it’s quite exciting. For the past 4.5 years, it has been me and me alone answering customer service emails. Alas, the time has come to add some new spirit to the team. This week, I am proud to announce that Sara is joining the customer service team!
