Happy Cows and Milk ATM's
The family owns 70 milking cows, they are allowed out in the grazing fields any time they want, and are milked daily by their milking robots, over looked by the family.
They are 100% Organic and non-GMO fed with produce they grow themselves. They know everything that the cows eat and how they are treated due to their cultivation and food control.
When they have pregnant cow she is allowed in the open fields all through the summer, making her a very happy cow and growing a very strong and healthy calf.
The Raw Milk Machine. While it has been said for a very long time that raw milk is dangerous to your health, it is no longer true.
The reason the milk was dangerous was because the cows were unhealthy, their living places was never kept clean, and they were constantly covered in filth that would make them sick.
With the way we take care of animals today we no longer have to fear about raw milk.
At the Sunshine Farm you will find a Vending Machine that dispenses liters of fresh milk all day long 24 hours a day.
Their milk is:
- completely untreatead
- not pasteurized
- fat content: ca. 4,28 %
