We learned that they have several different types of cows at Organic Pastures - Not just Jersey, Holstein and French Normandys, but lots of cows that are a combination of those 3. The Combo-Cows produce the best milk, which gets to be up to 75% cream.
We walked around the labor and delivery pasture and were greeted by an assortment of Happy Cows (if you live in California, you've seen the commercials!). They were very friendly and allowed the kids to pet them.
As you can see here, Boo is also a friendly cow :)
After we left the Mama's and Papa's (there was a few bulls in there, too) we hopped in our cars and cruised across the property to where they keep the calves. The calves are kept in solitary pens from 3 days to 2 weeks old, it helps to keep them safe from coyotes. They are then shuffled around different pens, depending on their age, and eventually land themselves in the L&D pasture that they were born in :) We loved the calves! They were a little nervous due to all of the action, but a couple of them were curious enough to be pet, and even nursed on our fingers.
We finished up our tour by tasting some raw milk, and chocolate colostrum, both of which were pretty good. I really can't afford to spend $8 for a gallon of milk, but if I could I would probably switch to raw milk. The benefits sounds pretty awesome.
