About origin and it's products





Origin A2 Guernsey milk harkens back to the way milk was before human intervention. We’re bringing back milk in its original form – original taste, nutrition and genetics – just as nature intended. Naturally occurring 5% vitamin-rich milk fat (the good fat) provides a rich taste and creamy flavor. Our Guernseys’ grass pasture diet means that your milk is more nutritious, as evidenced by its famed & unique golden hue. Unlike most other milk, Origin Milk only contains the original A2 milk protein found in most cows thousands of years ago yet very rare today, giving you a closer experience to what milk is supposed to be.

The Origin Milk Company has one singular focus: to bring back the original milk – milk as it was when cows were first domesticated – and to do so locally in each market that we serve.

We named our company Origin because that is precisely what it is – milk in its original form – original taste, original nutrition and original genetics. It is also what the organic/local food movement is all about: the origin of our food and people asking the question “where did this come from?”. In our case, Origin milk comes exclusively from the original heritage breed of cows – the Guernsey.

What makes the Guernsey breed unique is that our cows process milk as all cows used to prior to the modifications that were ushered in by industrialized dairy farming practices. Guernseys produce less milk but a more concentrated and nutritious milk – a higher quality milk. Our milk contains 33% more vitamin D, 25% more vitamin A, 15% more calcium, 12% more protein, 300% more omega-3, and is approximately 5% milk fat…all this is naturally inherent to the milk produced by this heritage breed. All of these factors not only give you a very nutritious milk, but also a great, rich and creamy flavor.

There is also interesting science behind the genetics of Origin a2 Guernsey Milk. a2 milk harkens back to the way milk was before natural & human intervention caused cows to develop a1 proteins in their milk.All other mammals produce a2 milk, including humans, which means a2 milk offers a closer experience to drinking the milk that humans are supposed to have. The difference between the milk protein in a1 and a2 milk is only one amino acid – but this little difference impacts how our bodies digest the milk. Research shows that a large number of people who think they are lactose intolerant are actually a1 intolerant and can thus drink a2 milk and not experience adverse health issues.

We’ve developed an entire offering of products made from a2 milk including whole milk, 2% milk, chocolate milk heavy cream, half-and-half, artisan butter, and yogurt. All the milk is non-homogenized, low-heat vat pasteurized, with cream on top, and the cows are free-grazing and grass pastured. Our farmers do not use growth hormones, antibiotics or GMO feed.
