About our milk:
Hickory Hill Milk:
Watson Dorn and family have owned and operated farms on the same land for over 20 generations. Their cows graze freely on pasture 18 hours a day, exceeding even most organic dairies’ grazing times, and Hickory Hill never adds antibiotics to feed or gives hormones to their animals.
To paraphrase there website: “Hickory Hill Milk is fresh, local milk collected on the farm twice a day and bottled on-site five days a week. The milk is all-natural, old-fashioned whole milk. It’s guaranteed to be rBGH (hormone) and antibiotic free. They process the milk as little as allowable for flavor, nutrients, and freshness. Hickory Hill Milk is low-temp pasteurized, meaning it is heated to 145-degrees and held there for 30 minutes then cooled as quickly as possible. This gives the milk the smooth, sweet taste of yesteryear and preserves the naturally occurring enzymes that help your body easily digest it”.
 
Green Grocer:
The raw whole milk we use is exclusively from Green Grocer
Raw whole milk from old-fashioned Jersey cows on pasture
Green Grocer specializes in the highest quality fresh products. They believe the health of our bodies is dependent on the health of the soil. Balanced, healthy, living soil is the key to it all. Beautiful green pastures lead to beautiful healthy animals and crops which lead to beautiful healthy people.
Celeste and George Albers own Sea Island Jerseys. They produce raw milk from their Jersey cows at their farm on Wadmalaw Island.
