Facts about Raw Milk

Reviews of Northern Dawn Products

"I have used goat milk since 1979 when my second daughter was diagnosed with a milk allergy when she was about 15 months old.  At that time I used goat milk products produced in California, one of the states leading in nutrition and natural healthcare.  Since that time I have used goat yogurt to make various meals such as potatoes topped with goat yogurt instead of sour cream and pancakes made with goat yogurt.  

I moved back to Utah, my home state in 2005 from Ohio where I also purchased goat milk products.  I am diabetic and finding in my latter years that I react to foods with additives.  I contacted Peggy about buying raw goat milk from her a few months ago, because I had been told by a friend that it provides natural acidophilus.  

I have now replaced the almond milk I was using with raw goat milk.  This has been an addition to my diet that has made it more palatable.  The goat milk is always delivered cold and fresh.  

I love having a bowl of oatmeal with goat milk on it.  It takes me back to a time in life when I actually enjoyed eating breakfast, before I had to go off of dairy products.  Sometimes when you pour the goat milk you will see the rich cream on top of the container.  Peggy always delivers the milk when she says she will.  

She works long hours caring for the goats and making sure the milk is stored properly.  I am not sure but I believe it might be helping with my osteoporosis, although I haven’t had a bone scan recently.  But I know I feel stronger. "  Karen .... Utah County, Utah

Using the milk to aid in health and delicious meals

"Peggy has been sharing her goat milk with me for the last 8 years. I have been acting as her milk tester for part of that time.  She takes excellent care of the goats before she milks by wiping their utters with baby wipes. Her hands are clean when she milks. She cools the milk quickly after milking and straining. She feeds the goats excellent grain and only the best hay.  The milk is sweet and creamy to the taste.  I highly recommend it for drinking."  Barbara ... Utah County, Utah
