Our old-fashioned authentic buttermilk is the slightly sweet liquid that remains after our golden butter is churned. It is often flecked with tiny bits of sweet, creamy butter that didn’t quite make it to the top to be skimmed. This is not the thick, cultured buttermilk you get from the store.
Buttermilk is traditionally used in baking, although some like to drink it straight. It is a great addition to recipes for biscuits, pancakes, and breads. Each jar is dated on the day of milking/separating so you always know exactly how fresh your buttermilk is.
This is not cultured.
Our Brown Swiss cows are on pasture 365 days per year. We rotationally graze them and they are moved once or twice daily to a fresh paddock of delicious greens. This ensures they are getting optimal nutrition to provide you with the best! They are also given fresh fruits & veggies when in season. And they have access to free-choice minerals and salt at all times.
Our cows are genetically tested for A2 genetics. To read more about A2 milk and why it is so much healthier, check out our blog post here.
CT Ranch uses reusable wide-mouth glass mason style jars for our dairy products. Jar trade is required or a $5/jar deposit will be charged at pickup.
The jar, lid & ring must be cleaned & sanitized before being brought to us as a trade. If not cleaned properly before being returned to us, they tend to harbor bacteria & mold growth, making them unusable for us to refill. Although we thoroughly clean and sanitize each jar before being filled, we take member safety very seriously and will not reuse jars, lids or rings that have been exposed to mold growth. Please help us keep everyone safe & wash those jars!
No jar credit will be given on jars that are returned dirty.
