I’ve been on the kick of buying natural, local, healthy products for awhile now, but I have to say that I’m even more careful about these things for Jeffrey. Which is why I couldn’t wait to give Origin Milk a try.
The folks behind Origin Milk are the same people who started Piccadilly Artisan Yogurt, which is where the idea for Origin Milk began. Customers would often ask about the milk used in Piccadilly’s products, so why not produce something they could take home to drink?
All the milk for Origin Milk is locally-sourced from farms that have a special, small breed of Guernsey cows. These cows naturally produce A2 milk, which has only the A2 beta-casein protein, rather than the human-introduced A1 protein of most other milk. The milk has a distinctive golden color and rich taste. And A2 milk is higher in calcium, protein, and vitamins than other types of milk.
I had a chance to try the whole milk and the chocolate milk recently. Jeffrey loved the whole milk (I’ve honestly never seen him polish off milk like that) and Matthew and I enjoyed the rich, dessert-like quality of the chocolate milk. Origin Milk also makes 2% milk, goat milk, half-and-half, heavy cream, and butter.
So, where can you find Origin Milk? At Heinen’s, Market District, Constantino’s, and Whole Foods. For a product that hits all of the highlights of being fresh, all-natural, and locally-sourced, give Origin Milk a taste!
***Disclosure: I was asked to review Origin Milk. In exchange, I received complimentary half-gallons of whole milk and chocolate milk, as well as a gift card to Piccadilly Artisan Yogurt. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
