100 Percent Grass Fed Dairy Farm

Just found the coolest website.  It lists all of the 100 percent grass fed dairy farms in the country.  The Texas farm is located in Cameron, TX about 80 miles outside of Austin.  I just spoke to Alysha Godfry, an owner of the farm, to find out if there is a group in Austin that goes to the farm weekly.  Currently, there is not but maybe we could start our own.  Alysha mentioned that other groups get together and pay a driver to go to the farm weekly for them.  I am going to check out their products and report back.  It is really interesting that none of the milk is pasteurized.  Alysha said that most customers say the milk taste fresh and creamy.  This farm also has turkeys, chickens, beef, pork, yogurt, cheese, produce and some fruit.  Here is the website to the Texas farm
Here is the wedsite to see if there is a farm in your state.

By Texas law, raw milk products must be picked up on the farm under threat of prosecution from the State. Therefore many families around the State have formed groups to come to the farm to pick up their items.  They come weekly, monthly and every other month. Ask us if there is a group near you. 
A limited number of Farm Memberships are offered each year giving members a discounted price on milk and eggs at the farm. Meat items can be purchase by the quarter, half or whole for discounted prices.
