Real Raw Milk

We have a new vice. It's raw cows milk that comes from Grace Harbor Farms, on Birch Bay Lynden Road, not too far from us in a small town called Custer. In the picture is one of their girls "Rainbow", and you can read more about her, a Guernsey cow as well as how she came to Grace Harbor HERE

Grace Harbor is already renowned for their raw goat milk, goat cheese and natural soaps, lotions and skin care products, but this past November they have, much to our delight, added raw cow milk.

Not to go on another food related tangent, but raw milk is silky cream on the pallet with a hint of sweetness. Delightful! In addition to being an outstanding source of nutrients including beneficial bacteria such as lactobacillus acidolphilus, vitamins and enzmes, and one the finest source of calcium available; it just tastes lovely!

If you get the opportunity to buy some at their dairy or a local Bellingham store, like the coop downtown, do so, and I bet that you'll keep coming back for more just like we did. However, if you make time to go to the dairy direct during business hours, you'll likely see their now three, Guernsey cows, peacefully grazing in the pasture, happy and healthy.

Everyday I thank providence for bringing us to such a bountiful place as Bellingham. It truly is the land of milk and honey!
