If you’re a cheese lover like me and a fan of authentic, real food made from farm fresh ingredients, then you probably know just how difficult it is to find affordable cheese from grass-fed cows. Finding cheese from grass-fed cows that has also been made from raw milk? Close to impossible.
Some of us are lucky enough to live near raw milk dairies that also make cheese. Others are lucky enough to live near artisan cheese makers that are proud to source their raw milk from authentically pastured cows.
Most of us? Not so lucky. So, what are you supposed to do if you can’t find these nutrient-dense, traditionally-crafted cheeses? Until recently, I would have said you should make compromises. Maybe opt for a grass-fed, but pasteurized cheese. Maybe opt for a mostly grass-fed cheese. Maybe opt for a cheese that’s at least organic and/or made from cows not dosed up with growth hormones or antibiotics. Maybe learn how to make your own cheese.
Now? I’ve discovered an online retailer of affordable raw milk grass-fed cheese, and this week I’m giving away a Sampler of their classic cheese selections.
Real Milk Cheese prides itself on offering fantastic cheeses from the milk of entirely pastured, 100% grass-fed Jersey cows. According to their marketing materials, “No chemicals are used! Our cows are managed without the need of routine antibiotics and are fed only grass and hay. Garlic extract and permethrin pour-on are used for fly control. The milking herd is moved to fresh grass every 12 hours.”
Take a look at these happy cows!
And best of all? These cheeses are available for online purchase! That means that no matter where you live within the U.S., you can have affordable, quality cheeses delivered straight to your door.
What You’ll Win
A Classic Sampler of cheeses, which includes:
- 2 8oz. packages of Cheddar,
- 2 8oz. packages of Colby,
- 2 8oz. packages of Herbal Jack,
- 2 8oz. packages of Pepper Jack, and
- 2 8oz. packages of Garlic & Chives
If bought separately, these cheeses would quickly add up to $81 and some change. But when purchased as a sample pack, the price drops to a mere $58.50.
This contest is officially ended, and the winner has been announced.
