General questions and answers

What makes our product better?

We work with animals and our ecology like no-one else in Denmark. If, like us, you believe that you are what you eat. Then the better the lives of the animals, the better your food and the healthier you are. If that is you, we welcome you home.

Do you deliver?

We are in Copenhagen every Sunday from May until Christmas. Find us at your nearest Green Market

From January to the end of May, we will be delivering every Sunday to subscribers, at the locations of the Green Market (first Sunday, Refshaleøen, second Sunday Vesterbro, third Sunday Nørrebro, fourth Sunday Frederiksberg).

We also deliver our eggs to a select few cafes and restaurants. Can you find out which ones, by tasting our distinctive eggs in their dishes?

Why is your produce so expensive yet almost always sold out?

As we have reverence for our animals and our ecology, we do not farm intensively. This means that the animals are not densely packed into areas and that the land gets to properly recover and flourish. This is converse to other producers.

We don't want to disappoint customers. But it is our philosophy and way of life - which ultimately results in produce that is worth savouring when it is available. This honours the animals' sacrifices and the land more so than industrial agriculture.

Our work is time intensive, spending more time with the animals to make sure they have what they need to lead happy lives. We believe this investment of our time should be properly compensated.

We also do not take subsidies from the Danish government or the EU (also known as taxpayer funding to keep supermarket prices artificially low).

Raw milk

How do I order raw milk?

Our high welfare, 100% grassfed, A2 raw milk can be ordered seven days in advance for the next Green Market or to the farm on Sunday.

There is no availability for the raw milk - all days are sold out

Please come back regularly. We update the stock weekly.

Our raw milk is extremely popular.

Please subscribe to our newsletter to find out when we will offer more availability, s we plan to get more cows soon.

What do I bring and how do I transport and store raw milk?

Raw milk will sour if kept at temperatures that benefit enzymes and microbes.

To keep raw milk as fresh as possible, bring cool boxes/bags and cooling elements with you when you pick up the milk. This will keep the milk at a cold temperature when you transport it, especially in warmer months and over long journeys.

We have been told by customers that our milk can last over a week when transported and stored properly. Some use vegetable compartments in modern fridges that are usually at 0 degrees centigrade.

Is raw milk dangerous or is it more beneficial than pasteurised?

It's up to you to decide whether raw milk is safe. It is important you make up your own mind and we do not claim either way.

Please see the government websites for risks/dangers.

Conversely, please see:

We drink a few litres of our raw milk every day.

Can you sell raw milk off the farm?

Yes, we can now deliver our fresh raw milk to Green Market locations every Sunday. We can only deliver and do not sell at the market, so make sure to preorder on this site.

Is the milk A2A2 certified?

Yes, our herd is certified 100% A2A2 genetics.

Why can’t I order more than 3 litres of raw milk (per household)?

We are currently limiting amounts of purchase, so that everyone gets to enjoy the limited amount of raw milk we are allowed to sell.

Also, people’s microbiomes have become increasingly sterile in the modern age. Consider experiences of going to a non-Western country and becoming ill from the food, while the locals thrive.

Raw milk is alive. Like other raw foods has a strong detoxifying effect. Everyone is different.

Marianne could drink raw milk from the start. Andy had to get used to it, but now can drink many litres per day without issues.

Most people have to gradually get used to raw produce by having small amounts to start with. We want you to enjoy raw milk and not be put off by a bad reaction if you go crazy too quickly.

Some have found the easiest way to make the transition is to:

  • Culture the milk, such as by making kefir or yoghurt (have the cultures ready before you collect) – see the book Home Cheese Making
  • Have raw milk in small quantities, between meals and without other proteins or grains – if you experience a negative reaction, abstain for a couple of days, then go back to the amount that you were OK with before. This way, you can build up your tolerance steadily.
  • Have raw milk with some raw honey, which contains enzymes that may help in digestion

I am allergic to milk, is your milk different?

In our experience, an allergy is a sign of a body being out of balance in some way. Typically from historic and current: diet choices, physical and metabolic strength and emotional wellbeing.

As our own example, Andy developed an intolerance to milk from too many processed and pasteurised whey protein milkshakes when he was weight lifting.

This gave Andy's body a kind of PTSD to pasteurised milk, where it went into dis-regulation every time it got a whiff of milk.

After lots of experimenting with raw milk quantities, starting small and building tolerance, Andy can drink raw milk just fine.

Some people have an intolerance to the A1 beta casein mutation that is present in most milk. Some cannot tolerate pasteurised milk because the milk has been damaged or destroyed by heating.

This is why we will not sell large quantities of milk to new customers. We know it tastes like the best thing ever made, so it is hard to stop chugging a litre at a time!

Is the milk high in fat?

We believe so. A test made in June 2023 had 6.4% fat and 4.9% protein. This will change throughout the year.

However, we believe that because we are not milking more than once a day, the cows are not pushed to make too much milk, meaning each litre of milk we get from them is more “concentrated”.

Isn't fat bad for you?

No. The Ancel Keys' study that this widespread and enduring myth is based on, has been demonstrated as incorrect. See the book Vegetarian Myth. Makes you wonder about the expertise of doctors, huh?

How do I skim the cream or make butter?

Place all the milk into one glass container. You will see the cream form at the top after a few hours. You can then skim this with a ladle or spoon. Try not to get milk into the cream if making butter.

If you want to make butter, we use a KitchenAid to churn. There are how-to guides and recipes online for your preferences. We do not sour or salt our butter when we make it. We found that it can last for a few days in the fridge. Butter can be frozen if you and your family somehow don’t eat it immediately.

Contact us if you are interested in recipes and advice!

How do I make cheese and yoghurt?

A great starting book is: Home Cheese Making. We have made many soft and hard raw cheeses with this book.

For different types of natural yoghurt, please refer to: Nourishing Traditions

Cheese and Yoghurt making supplies are available in Denmark:
