We're so excited to add dairy to our store! Old Church Creamery is located in VA and is the family operation of Kristen and Ben Beichler - former Polyface interns! Old Church source of milk for their products is from Kristen and Ben's farm which is just a couple of miles from Polyface! It is processed at the lowest temp possible to ensure all the good bacteria stays intact so it's a GREAT source of protein, Omega 3's and probiotics for a healthy gut! Kefir, drinkable yogurt, chocolate milk and whole milk available! GMO free, no antibiotics or pesticides or added hormones! Just plain healthy goodness! 🌱🐄 #grassfed #dairy ... See MoreSee Less

Curious about two things.... first - when do they take the calves away from mom? Second - what do they do with the male calves?

I am not familiar with laws in Va., but why not raw? Is it illegal there?

What is the best way for someone in Lynchburg to acquire Old Church Creamery products?

Can you send some to Indiana?

So Jealous! Our state is so deep in bed with corporate Ag. , we aren't allowed to sell much of anything from the farm. 🙁

Polyface! ❤️🙌🏼

That's one thing I just can't acquire the taste of.

My both kids are drinking kombucha.

Love the hashtag!

From an article in Rodale's Organic Life...

"Kombucha, when raw and unpasteurized, is rich in probiotics—the healthy gut bacteria associated with heart health, lower rates of anxiety and depression, fewer yeast infections, weight management, boosted immunity, and, you guessed it, improved digestive health.

(Note: Kombucha’s probiotics do not survive the pasteurization process, so stick to unpasteurized.)"Sooo excited to add Mountain Culture Kombucha to our store and buying clubs! Made with #pure #mountainwater #fairtrade #organictea and #rawsugar Never pasteurized! Learn more about them at www.mountainculturekombucha.com or click on their IG account above! 🙌🏽
