Group Buy: Grass Fed Cheese!

This weekend we will be taking orders for grass-fed cheese from Coulter Farms and Kenny’s Farmhouse Cheese!

Quick info about each farm:

Coulter Farms: The Coulter family produces Raw Milk Cheeses, from their own Certified Organic, 100% Grassfed Jersey Milk right on their farm in Honey Grove, Pennsylvania. This is truly "raw milk" cheese, never heated above 102 degrees.

Kenny's Farmhouse Cheese: Kenny and his team make several styles of cheese on their farm using old world techniques. They've been making classics like White Cheddar and Gouda that they started almost 20 years ago to more complex original cheeses like Norwood that you won't get anywhere else.

Low Temp Pasteurized and Raw Milk Cheeses will be available. ***THIS ORDER WILL NOT BE AT PICK UP ON WEDNESDAY**** I will place our order on Monday but don't expect it to arrive until the following Wednesday. This is a pre-paid, pre-order and payment is expected by THIS Wednesday.

I’ve asked the cheesemakers to put “(Raw Milk Cheese)” in the title if it is raw milk cheese aged 60 days according to FDA regulation. All other cheeses are low temp pasteurized.

Raw milk cheese that is listed on the market is safe for human consumption and is aged at least 60 days per FDA regulation.

Prices and available sizes will be on the market website tomorrow for ordering. The pricing will include shipping and taxes/fees.

  • Cows Raised without synthetic hormones
  • Cows are grass-fed and raised on pasture
  • Old World, Handmade Cheese making Techniques
  • Cheeses made with non-homogenized low temp pasteurized or raw milk and aged at least 60 days to comply with the USDA regulations for raw milk cheese production
  • Vegetable-based rennet, to make it more acceptable to vegetarians
  • Cheeses that are not considered raw are pasteurized at the lowest legal temperature for 15 seconds

See Kenny’s and Coulter Farms' website for more detailed information about their process: http://www.kennysfarmhousecheese.com/

Benefits of Grass-Fed Cheese

  • One of the few foods that contain a perfect balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats, a ratio ideal for your health
  • Very high in CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) In fact, it contains five times more CLA than dairy from grain-fed cows! CLA, which are most abundant in grass-fed products, are among the most potent cancer fighters in all foods.
  • Considerably higher in beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin D, and vitamin E than cheese and other dairy from grain-fed sources
  • High in the healthy calcium and protein your body needs
  • Free from growth hormones and antibiotics
