Posted by Troy Fisher on 5/1/2014 to REAL Food Science

How to Make Cottage Cheese

Posted by Troy Fisher on 3/6/2014 to Recipes
In days gone by, cottage cheese was made from raw milk, which was poured into a pot and set in the cool corner of the cook stove to stay warm over several days until the bacteria in the unpasteurized milk increased the lactic acid levels enough to form the soft curds that are the base for cottage cheese. In this recipe, we use a mesophilic starter to better control the milk's culturing, but the principle is the same.

Healing Nature's Way: the Cooks' Story

Posted by Carrie Fisher on 5/7/2013 to Raw Milk Stories
Jeannette and Katia Cook's experience with illness and conventional medicine lead them on the path to raw milk and Pasture's Delights. When Jeannette first found Pasture's Delights in the fall of 2009, she was working as an LPN (licensed practical nurse). "I had seen too many well people get sick, and I was looking for safe, natural health remedy alternatives…"

Founding Fathers Were Farmers and Gardeners First

Posted by Mark Grieshop on 4/29/2013 to A Word from Mark
Washington, Adams, Jefferson – comfortable with either a hoe or pen in their hands or seeds or parchment paper in their pockets, possessed an enthusiastic appreciation for the land and growing food. George Washington was not only a Founding Father of this great nation, he was the father of, or least a leading proponent of management-intensive, grass-based agriculture! ……let’s hear a drum roll for all grass farmers!

Quick and Easy Goat Milk Ricotta

Posted by Troy Fisher on 3/29/2013 to Recipes
With this super quick and easy recipe, you'll have ricotta cheese to use in your pasta dishes, desserts, and appetizers in no time.

While this ricotta recipe is heated, it is also possible to make a cultured raw ricotta with a little more effort. Works with cow's milk too!

Let freedom ring loud and clear!

Posted by Mark Grieshop on 2/22/2013 to A Word from Mark
Indiana is currently considering several bills that will either legalize or further restrict access to raw milk in Indiana. If we are going to get legislation that is ultimately beneficial to raw milk consumers we will have to make our voices heard LOUD and CLEAR. Here I go over some thoughts on what I'd like to see from our legislators.

Beware of Vicious (Downward) Spirals

Posted by Mark Grieshop on 1/17/2013 to A Word from Mark
This time of year seems to be fraught with lack: lack of sun, lack of warmth, lack of fresh food, lack of energy. It is easy to get into a cycle of crutches that aren't always healthy under these conditions just to get us through. But dependency on quick fixes whether its caffeine, unemployment insurance, crop insurance, or regulation can have wide-ranging consequences!

How to make REAL (raw) BUTTER

Posted by Troy Fisher on 11/6/2012 to Recipes
Once people start drinking the REAL (raw) MILK, one of the most common questions we get is: "how can I make butter?" The process is really quite simple. A blender, food processor, Kitchen Aid® stand mixer, or even a glass jar and some muscle power will do. Make butter from the herd's extra cream in the spring and fall and freeze it for use all summer and winter.

Your life. Your vote. Your choice.

Posted by Mark Grieshop on 10/5/2012 to A Word from Mark
Everything is a choice. This is life’s greatest truth and its hardest lesson. It is a great truth because it reminds us of our power. It is a hard lesson, because it causes us to realize that we have chosen the life we are living right now. Election Day is November 6. You are empowered to vote—or not—as you choose. Do your homework on the candidates and stand on principle. United WE stand for Freedom: One for all, All for one.
