20140415_165852The newest addition to our milk case at The Old Dutch Cupboard is raw goat’s milk, which is not pasteurized and also un-homogenized. Goat’s milk is very high in nutritional benefits and could in some respect be considered healthier than cow’s milk! Did you know that 65% of the world’s milk consumption is goat’s milk? This could be reasoned that goats take up less space than cows and because they are fed less, they are more profitable and also environmentally friendly.

The Many Benefits of Goat’s Milk:

  • Less allergenic — goat’s milk contains less lactose and also less mucus. This makes it easier to digest for people who are lactose-intolerant.
  • Goat’s milk is easier easier to digest for some people than cow’s milk.
  • Contains same level of calcium as cow’s milk and higher levels of vitamin B-6, A, and potassium
  • Naturally homogenized, unlike cow’s milk which separates between the cream and skim.

Come into the store to try out your own bottle of goat’s milk. We sell it in plastic 1-quart bottles located in the milk cooler next to the half-n-half and creamer.
