Zaycon Foods now has milk!! And not just any milk, its as natural as nature intended. No added vitamin fortifiers, no GMOs, no hormones.
The milk comes from a small family farm in Spokane, Washington. Holstein cows are the breed of choice for providing milk for the purpose of drinking and cooking. The Holstein cow provides the best balance of cream content. While the Jersey cow is more readily recognized in the premium milk category, the farm recognizes that whole milk from a Jersey cow would require additional processing to reduce the cream content down from 5-6% so it is enjoyable by the average family.
The milk is processed using an old fashioned pasteurizing process that ensures no harmful pathogens exist, while still keeping the living cultures that make milk such a valuable foodstuff. The folks at the farm are so meticulous that the vats are hand scrubbed after each batch. This is a critical step in providing the fantastic shelf life. The reason our milk is not raw is because any states do not allow the sale of raw milk while others regulate it heavily. This makes it impossible for Zaycon Foods to serve our delivery areas throughout America if we offered raw milk.
Homogenized milk is NOT milk in its natural form. Since neither we here at Zaycon or the good folks at the farm are not going to make claims that this milk is going to be your healing answer to all that ails you, we encourage you to do your own research and learn what is being discovered about how our bodies try to process homogenized milk fat.
Most likely you will taste a difference. In the best of ways! If you have never had raw milk, you will certainly notice the difference. Zaycon’s milk is similar to good old fashioned raw milk. As many of us at Zaycon drink the milk, we find that it is not only more accepted by the family, but even becomes a craving, especially for our children! They ask for milk rather than juice and soda! We have found that our perception of milk has changed from it being a beverage to more of a whole food.
Since our milk routes are still in the beginning stages, we are only offering it in the Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon areas. And will be adding to our locations in January to Idaho and Utah. Milk will be delivered every two weeks at the same time and same place. As the farm grows, so will our delivery locations.
