Use this cow milk alternative in all your favorite recipes.
Goat milk contains less lactose than cow milk which makes it easily digestible, especially for people who are lactose intolerant. With 3.5% fat, it's rich consistency is unmatched. It does have a slight tang, but nothing super noticeable.
Our favorite uses for goat milk include drinking it plain, adding to smoothies, or covering oats overnight for a delicious breakfast.
Creekside Organic Acres gives their goats free access to pasture year round. However, in the hot summer, they usually choose to stay in the barn. When they're not eating forage at pasture, they are fed a GMO-free, corn-free, soy-free, and chemical-free feed from a farmer that raises and mixes the grains himself. Feed contains barley, oats, canola meal, alfalfa, speltz, flaxseed, and minerals.
The milk is straight from the udder. Full fat and cream top. Never heated.
Honest Disclosure: Milking equipment is cleaned with a bleach solution. This is part of our milk safety protocols. It is flushed with very hot water afterwards, so, if there were any residue, it would be in trace amounts. It is packaged in HDPE plastic which is the most environmentally stable of all plastics. It does not contain BPA, phthalates, heavy metals, harmful fumes, or allergens. But all plastic has the potential to leach chemicals.
