RAW GOATS' MILK
I use a machine to milk each goat once a day. While on the milk stand, the doe gets her daily ration of grain and extra love. Best practices for milking and sanitation protocols are used and can be provided in detail upon request. The milk is chilled immediately then brought to the kitchen for straining, bottling and additional chilling and storage at below 40 degrees.
As per Iowa law effective 7/1/23, milk is tested in our on-farm lab a minimum of once per month for coliform count and standard plate count. The counts are below the legal limits for sale.
Milk can be purchased direct to consumer in quart jars. There are many benefits to drinking raw milk, which you can read more about here. Each purchase comes with this label: This container holds raw milk that is not subject to state inspection or other public health regulations that require pasteurization and grading.
