Raw dairy is a scary topic for some as they think that raw milk means E. coli and inevitable sickness. I asked Nathan Glazebrook of Organic Pastures Dairy in Fresno, CA to tell us the truth about raw dairy, the Organic Pastures farm in particular, and how a raw dairy farm differs from a conventional one. Nathan talks to us about the cows’ life and diet, what happens if they get sick, how the milk is handled, their safety protocols, and the potential benefits of raw dairy that is not pasteurized or homogenized. This is a fascinating conversation that you won’t want to miss!
P.S. Nathan is at home making lunch for his family while we talk so you may hear some sizzling and cooking in the background :)
