Our Jersey herd produce creamy, full-bodied A2 milk that is naturally high in cream and fat - resulting in a truly unique taste that you can't beat. In fact, other's can't beat it either - we've collected over half a dozen awards that attest to the quality and flavour you can expect in every mouthful.
The Finer Details
In Matamata, our beloved Jersey herd grazes on organic pastures, although at times their diet is supplemented with hay, silage and maize cut from our paddocks.
We do all our processing and bottling on-site, and we do not homogenise milk. By making this choice, we ensure that the milk you receive is the same milk we get from our herd.
The process of homogenisation involves breaking up the fat droplets to smaller sizes so that they do not separate from the rest of the milk. This results in a more 'uniform' milk. Because we only pasteurise, our milk body and cream separate, leaving the cream to rise to the top. This is completely natural and, we believe, the only way to enjoy milk.
Jersey Girl Organics milk is audited to strict BioGro NZ organic standards, so you can be sure that the milk is free of antibiotic, herbicide and pesticide residues.
Our herd has been carefully chosen to only produce the A2 protein strain. There are certain health benefits A2 milk can provide over standard milk that contains both A1 and A2 protein. These include:
May reduce the symptoms of lactose intolerance
May reduce digestive system inflammation
May improve cognitive performance in children (Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition)
We are a certified organic farm, and as such the milk we produce differs slightly from regular milk.
While the differences aren't major, they are significant enough to warrant learning more about how organic milk can be better for you and your family.
