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.
