We’re thrilled to be able to introduce you to an organic single-origin milk from a local Ontario family farm. Winding Creek keeps a small herd of purebred Holstein cows, who are grassfed year-round on organic pasture grasses. Their cows are treated with the best possible care, with individual love and attention, and the milk has incredible flavour.
When you buy milk at a supermarket – even organic milk – it’s blended together from thousands of cows that come from many different farm sources. A single-origin milk like this one gives you a unique flavour experience, that originates from the particular blend of soil composition and nutrients on this one farm.
Just like a high-quality coffee or a fine wine, the terrain of the land influences its products. Winding Creek Farm has a rich blend of loam, silt, and peat-based soils, and together with the full spectrum of grass species and silage that they grow for the cows, this imparts a rich and full flavour to their milk.
We think you’ll find this milk tastes incredibly fresh and creamy. You may also be able to pick out some hints of toasted almonds, hay, vanilla, and white chocolate flavours. Since we each taste things a little differently, we’d love to hear back from you about your own tasting notes!
The Holstein cows at Winding Creek carry the A2 gene, which means that the type of β-casein protein in the milk is considered more digestible. Many people who are otherwise lactose-intolerant are able to enjoy A2 milk without any digestive issues. The herd at Winding Creek is not yet fully A2, but they’re transitioning towards being 100% A2 milk producers.
This milk is also non-homogenized, which many people find more digestible as well. Like old-fashioned milk, the cream rises to the top. You can choose to shake the milk to mix the cream back in, or pour the cream off and enjoy it separately. Or you can simply use it as-is, and you’ll get a spectrum of creaminess as you go through the bottle.
Whispering Meadows is the exclusive online seller of Winding Creek organic milk, and we can deliver it to you in 1 or 2 litre sizes. And because we deliver direct from the farm, the bottles don’t need to spend any time in distribution warehouses, or sitting on store shelves. So you’ll get your milk when it’s as fresh and delicious as possible. We think you’ll love it.
