100% grass fed dairy products

Kerrygold is out for me, because of that... thanks for sharing!

Not a texture thing. Just a fat thing. Whole milk is a bit too rich for everday drinking for me.

Yes, it's pasturized. I, personally, don't mind the pasturization (though prefer it NOT to be "ultra" pasturized, however).

Unfortunately, that link is for their whole milk. The 2% is not 100% grassfed.

For those that are following, was just at Whole Foods this weekend (in Tustin) and they are now carrying Organic Valley 100% grass fed milk (whole and non-fat). 2% is only "grass fed" and this is the explanation on their website:

Why isn't Organic Valley 2% Grassmilk™ labeled 100% Grass-fed?
The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has a different standard of identity for fluid milk products than the Federal Standard of Identity, requiring higher levels of milk solids such as calcium and fatty acids. In order to meet California's particular statutes, all reduced fat milk sold in the state contains added milk solids as required by law. The milk solids we add to our 2% Grassmilk™ comes from other herds of Organic Valley cows. Since these herds may not always be 100% grass fed, we cannot label the milk "100% grass-fed," even though the fluid milk in the carton comes from 100% grass-fed cows.

Now, if only it came in a glass bottle. :) Yes, I'm too picky.

Still looking for 100% grass cheese and butter!!!!!!!!

Thanks - but Kerrygold is not organic. :(

I spoke with Clover. The gal said they only time they supplement with grain is when the grass is frosted over (potentially winter) or if it's a really dry summer and the grass is brown. But, understandably, she couldn't definitively say when supplementation would happen since it is dependent on the weather. But if the grass is green, they are at pasture without grain supplements. This is better than year round supplementation, of course, but I'd still prefer 100%.

I will look into Traders Point Creamery as mentioned by TPForganic below. I've not seen it at my Whole Foods, but I wasn't looking for it either....

Thanks. I will inquire with Clover to confirm it is 100 percent grassfed. It is not clear on the website...

Organic Pastures uses corn, unfortunately.

100% grass fed dairy products

Does anyone know of where in SoCal (OC area, preferably) I can get 100% grass fed, organic, (cow) dairy products? Not just pastured dairy... 100% grass fed with absolutely no grain supplements to the diet.

Consulted eatwild.com, but doesn't appear to be any listings for 100% grass dairies in CA.
