Farm Fresh Eggs
CT Ranch has always offered fresh from the farm, chicken & duck eggs. We have a mixed bunch of chickens: some Rhode Island Reds, a beautiful color pallet of Americaunas, some Plymouth Rock, a variety of Wyandottes and even a few Cuckoo Marans. We also raise Muscovy ducks. They are known as the quackless duck because they actually make a hissing sound to communicate rather than a quack.
Eggs are available on a first come, first served basis seasonally.
A2/A2 Raw Cows Milk
CT Ranch has been happily providing raw milk to our customers since 2014. We have chosen to raise and milk only A2/A2 Jersey, Guennsey and Brown Swiss cows. These breeds have very high butter-fat content and are more likely to carry the A2/A2 beta casein protein, which is known to be easier to digest for people with dairy allergies or lactose intolerance.
Our milk is sold the day it is milked and can last up to 2 weeks when kept at optimum temperatures. Perhaps surprisingly, other milk can be up to a month old before it reaches the supermarket shelf.
Our milk is entirely natural. The cream has never been removed from the milk and it naturally rises to the top of every jar.
Our milk goes from the cow, to the bottle, to you. Other milk may be pasteurized (cooked), homogenized (processed so the cream won’t rise to the top), adulterated with synthetic vitamins and other additives, and standardized. Standardization is the process used by all major producers where milk is separated into its constituent solids and fat, partially dehydrated, and then mixed back together to form a product which just conforms to minimum legal limits for milk.
It's Marketed Direct.
We process & bottle the milk ourselves, so we have control over every step of the process. This allows us to produce a quality product. We market and sell our milk directly from the farm and do not require a herdshare to get it.
Our milk cows are tested for Johnes, BLV, TB, Staph A. and Brucellosis before coming home to the farm.
It's Tested, Again.
Our milk gets tested monthly against pathogens that could be harmful to you and your family. We are not required to do this but feel it is in the best interest of our family and yours. We are always well below federal recommended levels, or have nonexistent levels of bacteria.
Our milk is raw milk. The natural nutrients, vitamins, and enzymes it contains have not been destroyed or altered by cooking, as is the case with pasteurized products.
Cleanliness standards for raw milk should be of the utmost importance. We pride ourselves on keeping our cows & equipment as clean as possible. Our milk tests prove that we are keeping it clean.
It's Ethically Produced.
We treat our cows with old-fashioned kindness and respect. We feed them unlimited grass hay, and pasture. They get alfalfa & organic grain when coming into be milked each morning. They also get garden fruits & veggies when they are in season. We never use hormones or other substances to artificially increase milk production.
It Tastes Great.
Our milk is natural, pure, clean, and fresh, and it tastes WONDERFUL.
It's Real Milk.
Because it is not processed or adulterated, our milk is the last real, honest milk you can buy.
