Perhaps there is no simpler satisfaction than that of a cold glass of milk? As a child, the sound of clinking glasses followed by the stream of milk rushing to flow and fill each glass full was always a sure sign that dinner was ready. That same nurturing feeling is evoked when pouring a glass of milk nowadays for my family.
Upon closer examination, the history of this beloved beverage can be tumultuous at times, as the industry as a whole has evolved and continues to. Virtuosos of the trade have emerged paving the way for its future. When we first tasted the golden-hued milk produced by Ohio-based Origin Milk Company, we instantly had an immense amount of respect for their milk. Like any food, we find comfort in knowing where it comes from. We learned that founder Adrian Bota’s passion for nutrition and innovation led to this game-changing milk. We love it so much, that about a year ago we introduced Dorothy Lane Market A2 Guernsey Milk to our selection. So grab a cookie (or two), pour yourself a tall glass, and keep reading to learn more about what sets this milk apart, besides its gorgeous creamy color.
Farm Fresh Milk
Adrian’s appreciation for milk goes back to his childhood as he grew up in Romania drinking milk from his family’s cows. It was when his daughter was born that he decided to embark on a humble mission to provide her with good milk, too.
This milk comes from a distinct heritage breed of dairy cows known as A2 Guernsey cows. Their genetic makeup produces what is known as the A2 milk protein, which is praised for being more digestible along with superior tasting. Most conventional cow’s milks comes from Holstein cows that produce larger volumes, but contain the A1 milk protein, which is linked to lactose intolerance. “If you just leave nature alone, leave the cows alone, and don’t try to turn a cow into a factory, you get better taste, better nutrition, and better genetics,” Adrian says. It’s milk that harkens back to its original, undisturbed form before human intervention.
Just one look and you can see that this DLM A2 Guernsey Milk is something special, boasting a golden-colored milk rich with both flavor and nutrients. It also contains 35% more vitamins A & D naturally as the antibiotic & hormone free cows graze on non GMO grass pasture. The flavor echoes its rich appearance for a satisfying gulp. So when you drink DLM A2 Guernsey Milk, know that its creator has poured into it his heart, soul, and a great respect for this product for your table.
A milk this good is not only deliciously refreshing straight from the glass, but it’s also quite enjoyable with the following applications:
• Use it as the base for a good cream sauce when cooking.
• Makes a great cream for your coffee drinks (In fact, it’s what we use at the DLM Coffee Bar).
• Swirled with chocolate, this will impress even the most enthusiastic chocolate milk drinker.
