OLD HERITAGE CREAMERY is a family owned farm and creamery. Our goal is to provide healthy, all natural products from grass fed animals. We do not separate our milk which provides the full benefit of all vitamins naturally contained in whole milk. As a result, we do not add more vitamin D to our milk. We do not homogenize our milk because that process negatively alters the fat contents of the whole milk. We low pasteurize our milk at a temperature of 145 degrees F for 30 minutes to maintain as many natural qualities of the whole milk as possible.
Most dairies use high temperature short time (HTST) pasteurization (180 degrees F for 2 minutes, then cool to 45 degrees F for 2 minutes), which negatively effects the quality of the whole milk.
