New local dairy products
Both of our stores now carry local Autumnwood Milk in the glass bottle. Autumnwood Farm, located south of Forest Lake, MN has been in the Daninger family since 1902. As a family business with long-held ties to the land, Autumnwood Farm is fully invested in the animals, the land, and everything the land produces. The entire farm is managed in a highly sustainable and environmentally balanced manner. The Daninger family has been honored with awards for top-quality milk, community service, and environment-respecting farming practices.
Using milk only from pastured cows, Autumnwood Farm brings all-natural, low-temperature pasteurized milk to our shoppers. Through rotational grazing and carefully managed nutrition, their cows produce milk that tastes good and is good for you.
Autumnwood Farm cows never receive growth hormone (rBST), and since they are raised naturally in a very healthful environment, they rarely need antibiotics. Every measure is taken to ensure that Autumnwood milk is free of any antibiotics.
You’ll find a new grass-fed cow milk in our dairy cases – Kalona SuperNatural.
Based in Kalona, Iowa, a small farming community in the heartland of America, Kalona SuperNatural™ works with small, sustainable family farms to provide delicious, certified organic milk from pasture-grazed cows. The bottled milk products offered by Kalona SuperNatural™ contain fresh, locally-sourced milk from Iowa Amish and Mennonite farms. Six days a week, milk from these local farms arrives at their creamery and is gently processed so they can deliver your milk in the most natural state possible. Kalona uses a lower-temp pasteurization process and does not homogenize their milk, leaving a delicious cream top for you to enjoy.
All Kalona SuperNatural™ milk meets these standards:
• Grade A
• USDA Certified Organic
• Kosher Certified
Look for Kalona’s whole, 2%, skim milk in 64 oz and chocolate milk in 32 oz. in our dairy case. We have their whipping cream and buttermilk, too.
Castle Rock organic milk
You will also find a wider selection of milk from Castle Rock Organic Farms of Osseo, Wisconsin – quarts of whole, 2% skim and chocolate are available in glass jars.
