    This is the first time in my area I've Grass-Fed Heavy Cream @ the store (whole foods).


    Although I was skeptical when it declared "our cows main diet is grass.."


    So I emailed them with this:



    Hey Amy,


    I recently found your products at a local Whole Foods store, specifically the Heavy Cream (1) Pint.


    Does this product come from cows that are 100% grass-fed through out their lives?


    Thanks

    And they answered with this:



    Thank you for inquiring about our products. During the spring, summer and early fall months the cows are 100% grass fed. In the winter months when grass is not as plentiful the cows still graze but in order to maintain a healthy body weight their diet does have to be supplemented. Their diet is supplemented with organic hay, organic haylage and a small amount of organic grain. The small amounts of grain typically consist of corn, oats and wheat mids. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions.

    That SEEMs reasonable to me, someone who knows *0* about farming. And I'd imagine most farms within certain Latitude/Longitude have to do the same thing.


    Whats the jury say?

    That seems pretty good to me. Is it pure cream or does it have carageenan in it? I've been unable to find commercial carageenan-free cream

    Maba,


    From what I can see, yeah, its ingredients list only "organic pure cream". As opposed to the Organic Valley, "pure cream, sodium something, and carageenan".

    I'd say, if you are able to find it for regular purchasing, then the product sounds good to me.


    The only 'one up' would be to buy it from the farm yourself, in raw form. (My suspicion is that they still pasteurize the final product).

    Sassa,


    Ironic you bring that up. Not 3 mintues ago did I find a local farmer that will bring grass-fed, unpasteurized cream to our farmers market this weekend.


    But yeah, even the Natural by Nature is pasteurized.

    I recognize that brand. I once bought their pasteurized milk from grass-fed cows but it was ridiculously expensive - ~$6 for half a gallon. I get raw milk for half that price. I wonder if the WF here in Pittsburgh carries that brand, must call and find out.

    For reference, 4.59 for the 1 pint of Natural by Nature.


    3.99 for Organic Valley, here in NE Florida
