Multiple people were surprised that I did NOT recommend freezing yogurt and kefir. Their anecdotal stories told a different tale, one where you can freeze yogurt and kefir at home with varying success. There was one BIG outstanding question from these conversations - what about microbiology? Can probiotic cultures survive freezing? I did some research.

I get so inspired by the amazing customers at Miller’s Bio Farm. One of the top customer questions that our team answers is, “How long does it last?” It’s such a hard question to definitively answer. After all, best by dates are a little ridiculous anyway. So, here's some more info to help answer this question PLUS I'm introducing our updated Shelf Life Guide for Farm Fresh Food.

One confusing topic that seems to come up again and again with our customers is the belief that, if raw milk splits when boiled, it’s the farm’s fault. The milk must have been spoiled. Well, here’s the scientific dirt on this issue. There is one simple factor that makes milk curdle - acidity!

I’ve come to realize that a huge part of cookie success comes down to butter! The quality and handling of butter can make or break a cookie recipe, even one that’s tried and true. Butter gives flavor, tenderness, and flaky layers to baked goods. It has a little liquid, which contributes to structure and rise. And, butter can enhance or inhibit gluten development, which in turn affects the shape, spread and texture of a cookie. Here are some top cookie/butter questions answered.

If you’re reading this, then you likely provide your family with the healthiest, most nutritious foods you can… and that should include the furry members of your family, too! Cats are carnivores, and dogs are omnivores. But, both are mammals. This means that, just like humans, they started their lives drinking raw milk. Ever have your pet (at least try to) lap milk up from your glass? I have! And, it seems that there’s a good reason for that innate desire.

Eggnog is an old fashioned drink, a very old fashioned drink. It was originally used as a health tonic, but was transformed into a fancy holiday drink a few hundred years ago. Buying eggnog from a store can be tricky due to questionable ingredients or processes. Luckily, it's quick and easy to make at home with healthy farm-direct ingredients!

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?

They say “A diamond lasts forever.” The same can’t be said about cheese crystals. But, they are a sign of quality and distinction. A true delicacy. Have you ever eaten aged cheese and found it to be a bit crunchy? Well, if you look closer, you would see small white dots in or on the cheese causing that crunch. Those are cheese crystals (NOT mold).

If you’re a cheese eater, there’s an easy way to save 2.6 hours per year! All you need to do is buy shredded cheese instead of shredding it yourself. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind a little elbow grease, especially when cooking. But, my hold up with shredded cheese has always been the options available.

Milk is sadly one of the most common food allergies in the US. It’s estimated that about 2.5% of children under 3 and 1-2% of adults are allergic to milk. Wow! Humans have been consuming milk for 6,000 years. Yet, the surge in milk allergies didn’t start until the past few decades. What’s going on? In my opinion, the problem is not simply “milk”... because all milk is not created equal. I’ve said it before, it’s the HOW not the COW.

Miller’s Bio Farm prides itself in producing the highest quality products possible. And, this is especially true for our decadent nutrient-dense all-natural A2 butter. We get a good amount of feedback about our butter. This is mostly because customers expect something similar to store bought, and our butter is starkly different. It’s even a bit different from other farms’ all natural butters. We’ve done a lot of pondering and experimenting, trying to figure out what makes our butter thicker and more flavorful than most. Here’s what we’ve come to believe.

I am personally ecstatic this week, because I LOVE SOFT CHEESE! And, it’s so hard (dare I say impossible) to find cheese, especially soft cheeses, made with high quality milk in stores. As of right now, Miller’s is offering for the first time ever - A2 CAMEMBERT CHEESE! And, it’s made with our own 100% grass fed and 100% A2 milk.
