    Early spring milk is packed with omega-3s

    Have you noticed that the flavor of the fresh milk has changed slightly in the last week?  It’s a result of the beautiful rain, which has caused a surge of grass growth, which is creating the richest, most beautiful milk!  Early spring milk is the most nutrient dense milk you’ll drink all year, because early spring grasses are the most nutritious    As the grasses grow and mature, the flavor of the milk will slightly adapt and mellow… but for now, take advantage of those dense omega-3s and drnk up!  As a reminder, all of our fresh milk is A2 milk, which contain the healthiest and most easily digestible proteins.

    The great compost experiment

    Daniel and Robyn returned from a soil health conference motivated to do more for Jako Farm’s soil health. You may have noticed a large mound covered with a white tarp on the edge of the farm. Have no fear, this is not silage; this is future compost!  Daniel and Ken have mixed a variety of green and brown matter, inoculated it with JakoPure whey, added 40% moisture, and are letting it “steep” for two months. Once the compost has fermented we will spread it over our pastures to add beneficial living organisms to the soil. Stay turned to see how this experiment turns out!  See pictures below.
