Non-Homogenized

 

While most milk undergoes homogenization, ours does not.

Homogenization was developed simply to give milk a balanced consistency, eliminating the need to shake it before drinking. Milk in its natural state has a cream layer that floats to the top.

Anyone who grew up on a farm, or before homogenization was common, will tell you that the cream gives milk a clean, full-bodied flavor and is the most desirable part! We tend to agree.

But beyond taste, however, we choose not to homogenize because it changes the molecular structure of milk, which has unhealthy consequences. In particular, it prevents the delivery of important nutrients to the body.
