Your Cart is Empty

by Jojo Frey April 23, 2015

Raw milk is a wonderful product to have access to. This past year, my mother started using a raw milk pick‐up service. Every Wednesday, she gets a gallon of raw milk from a local dairy co‐op. Not only do we get milk this way, but we get fresh cream as well. We pour off the rich cream that floats on top of the milk and use that to make our home‐churned butter.

I believe knowing where your food comes from is very important, particularly with animal products. Milk often comes from cows on large‐scale commercial dairies. This milk typically has traces of antibiotics and pesticides in it. Raw milk from pasture‐fed cows makes a big difference in the nutrients you get.

Finding raw milk in your state can be tricky. Raw milk sales are legal in 39 out of 50 states, however many states only allow raw milk sales on farms, not in retail stores. If you don’t have access to a local farm or other supply of raw milk, it is still better to buy pasteurized milk from a local dairy than a major brand.

So, where to find raw milk?

The Weston A. Price Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient‐dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism. Contact your local chapter leader for more information on where to find raw milk, along with many other locally‐grown products.

Real Milk is an important organization that campaigns for equal access to raw milk throughout the United States. Their user‐friendly tool, Real Milk Finder, is a valuable resource for finding raw milk near you.

Dairy Direct 2 You is another great resource for finding local farms that sell milk products. Many farms operate retail stores on‐site, but there are a variety of local delivery options as well.

To learn more about your state’s raw milk laws, check out the Farm to Consumer map.

The Chef Series: Marlon Alexander

by Jojo Frey January 10, 2018

For the third installment of our Chef Series, I am so excited to introduce the charming Marlon Alexander, a personal chef who has worked for some of the biggest names in show biz including Kiss, Rod Stewart and Christina Aguilera. I first met Marlon at a charity event, where a private dinner catered by him was auctioned off for a cool $14,000 (by the way, two of those dinners sold that night). Between his charisma, fascinating stories of the rich and famous, and delicious food, it’s easy to see why.

Truffle Butter

by Jojo Frey December 04, 2017

Truffle butter is a great way to preserve the aroma of truffles. Chefs recommend using truffle within five days or so. Aside from freezing it, making truffle butter is a good method to preserve the flavor. But, let’s be real… ain't no way truffle butter will last more than a few days in anyone’s fridge!!
