Great news for those of you looking for high-quality, organic milk! Zaycon Foods is now delivering non-homogonized, whole milk from grass-fed cows to the Portland Metro area and SW Washington the second week of June!
Each gallon is $5.99 and you must purchase in multiples of four (so the minimum order is 4 gallons = $23.96. Consider splitting an order with a friend or two!). Yes, $6 a gallon for milk is double than what you’ll find in the store, but this milk is different:
- All natural
- GMO free
- Low heat vat pasteurized
- Hormone and antibiotic free
- From grass-fed cows
This milk is from Spokane’s Family Farm. I tried this milk the last time it was delivered and it is the closest in taste, texture, and quality to raw milk I have found. I believe the equivalent milk from New Seasons is about $12 per gallon (non-homogenized, low-heat pasteurized). This milk is in plastic jugs though and not glass jars like the New Seasons product.
If you’ve been thinking of switching to raw milk for the health and taste benefits, but don’t want to shell out $10 per gallon or go through the hassle of finding (and driving to) a local raw milk farm, this is a good alternative.
Zaycon is bringing milk to Portland, Gresham, Oregon City, Tigard, Wilsonville, Vancouver, and Camas the second week of June.
