Is Oberweis Milk Organic?
Our milk embodies the nutritional qualities desired by most consumers seeking organic products even more than organic milk itself, which is why we chose not to pursue USDA organic certification.
We start by providing our cows feed called total mixed ration (TMR) made from grains, vegetables and supplements. After the raw milk has been produced it is pasteurized, as fresh milk has been for generations. During our pasteurization process we gently heat our milk to a temperature necessary to kill microbes, while ensuring that we retain the wholesome nutrients and delicious flavor of our milk. Unlike many organic milk brands, we do not subscribe to the practice of ultra-pasteurization, which often destroys nutrients and compromises the flavor quality of milk.
No artificial growth hormones, antibiotics, non-nutritional additives or preservatives are ever added to our milk. We believe that less processing leaves more room for flavor and delivers higher nutritional value that’s better for your family.
