Lady-Lane Farm is the only producer-distributor of Jersey milk in the state of Oregon.
As a youth, Garry was inspired by other dairies that produced and bottled their own milk. His aspiration of becoming a full time producer-distributor of premium milk was the foundation of Garry’s Meadow Fresh Jersey Milk Products.
Jersey milk is notably higher in calcium, protein, and nonfat milk solids compared to conventional milk. These qualities enhance the product’s creamy texture and taste.
Jersey milk has over 18% more protein and 29% more milk fat then all other milks.
Jersey milk contains over 20% more calcium than other milks.
Jersey milk contains more Vitamins A, B1 and B2 than conventional milk.
Garry’s Meadow Fresh Jersey Milk is vat pasteurized, insuring its original qualities like nutrition and flavor.
Pasteurization is the heating of milk to remove any harmful bacteria and make it safer to drink. Garry’s Meadow Fresh Products are vat pasteurized at 145 degrees Fahrenheit and held for 30 minutes. This is the mildest form of pasteurization so the milk does not have the “cooked” or “burnt” taste that you experience from milk that has been ultra high temperature pasteurized.
Garry’s Meadow Fresh Jersey Milk is non-homogenized. Our bodies prefer minimally-processed foods.
Homogenization is an intensive mixing process used to prevent cream from separating from the liquid of the milk. By breaking apart the milkfat, the fat globules become smaller and denser. The smaller particles float freely throughout the milk and reduce the tendency to collect or rise.
Garry’s Meadow Fresh Jersey Milk is provided in glass bottles to be reused and reduce waste.
glass bottles can be reused almost immediately; it goes back to the farm and is washed, sanitized and refilled. This process is much faster than recycling plastic or carton containers. You have to wait for it to be collected, sorted and then shipped off to the recycling plants. Think of how much energy is used in recycling these glass alternatives.
