Enjoying real, farm fresh dairy and unprocessed dairy products is something I value and consider paramount to good health. Dairy foods like milk, butter sour cream, heavy cream etc. are supremely healthy foods that are rich in high quality protein and easily absorbed calcium. I find it a shame that the general public has been convinced that real fat from pasture raised dairy animals are an evil food. The words "low-fat" fat free" and other catchy terms are now considered "benefits" to be sought after. I believe that only unprocessed full fat dairy should grace our tables.
In this episode I discuss what dairy products we keep in our fridge for eating and cooking with and also discuss the many considerations of acquiring and keeping dairy cows or dairy goats. I also share my opinion on pasteurized dairy and why in most cases it is needed in the market based dairy economy we have in this country.
