Introducing Maple Hill Creamery Organic yogurt made with milk produced by cows that are 100% grass-fed.
Milk from grass-fed cows has a more favorable fatty acid profile than milk from conventionally-fed cows (corn & grain fed)—it is higher in omega-3 fatty acids and lower in omega-6 fatty acids. Grass-fed cow’s milk has higher concentrations of the omega-3 fatty acids alpha-linolenic acid, ecosapentaenoic acid, and docosapentaenoic acid. In addition, grass-fed cow’s milk is higher in conjugated linoleic acid. In short, 100% grass-fed organically produced dairy is a healthier option with many added health benefits.
Unlike most dairy cows in the United States, 100% grass-fed cows aren’t fed corn, grain, soy, alfalfa pellets, corn silage, or manufacturing by-products.

Guess what day it is! Well, it doesn’t have to be hump day to enjoy a fresh glass of Camel milk at Bristol Farms. Fresh Dairy has always been a staple at Bristol Farms, and this last year we met the good folks at Desert Farms and were introduced to their 100% Natural Camel Milk. It is a delicious drink of pure goodness. The taste is slightly sweet, creamy, and always refreshing!
Milk is the heart of Desert Farms’ business, so it’s taken seriously. The milk has to taste great, but Desert Farms also strives to buy from farmers who look after their workers, herds, and the environment. The milk is sourced from US camel farmers only, of all types and sizes (large groups and tiny family farms) with an average herd of 6 camels.
Their farmers are asked to use “Good Manufacturing Practices” and abide by fair minimum standards to improve their social and environmental performance year after year. Desert Farms’ strategy is to work with the farmers and help them to get there.
