I had to write another post about Wild Market as I just had the MOST delicious milk that I have ever had in my entire life! They get it from a farm called Maple Hill Creamery. I cannot rave about this milk enough. My sister and I got a half gallon and literally toasted each other with small glasses of milk because it was so amazing. I remember feeling this way about my first experience with organic farmer’s market strawberries as an adult. I was like, “OMG, is this how they are supposed to taste? I have been missing out!” I told my sister that if milk tasted like this growing up, I would have liked it and not argued with my mom about drinking milk.
That brings up a good point. I don’t advocate lots of cow dairy. Let’s be honest, the milk from a cow is made for a baby calf to turn from 50 lbs to 500 lbs and is a highly intolerant food for many people. But we all know it tastes good. The dairy industry has done a great job of advertising to the point that people believe that milk is our only form of calcium, which it is not. But if you are going to eat dairy then eat the best dairy you can get your hands on and this company is it!
Maple Hill has GRASSFED cows. This means that you are going to get the beneficial fatty acids from it. You remember Omega 3’s right? This is the great fat in wild salmon and is in grassfed meat and dairy. It has CLA which has been shown to fight cancer. Plus it is free of steroids and antibiotics and lets be real, cows that pasture all day really are happy cows. Don’t let those commercials trick you into believing that the normal milk at the grocery is from grassfed happy cows. Maple Hill also low heat pasteurizes the milk. This means they are killing enough microbes for the FDA to let them sell nationally but they are not hurting the good fats in the milk. Don’t you just wonder why this isn’t a common practice with the big dairy industry?
I hope every runs to buy this milk for a bunch of reasons.
- It’s better for your health!
- It’s better tasting! Don’t worry if it is whole milk, that just means more Omega 3 fatty acids.
- It supports a farm that is doing the right thing
- It supports a local business, Wild Market, run by two amazing women.
Oh and by the way they now have Grassfed, grass finished beef to sell from a local farm called Happy Hollow Farms. They are a wonderful farm in Clyde. So if you can’t make it to the farmer’s market or you need a last minute cut of meat for the grill this weekend, check out Wild Market!
