About the Farm!

Life can get hard but eating healthy doesn't have to be! After a long day of work and running the kids back and forth to school and sports events, grocery shopping, cleaning the house and trying to squeeze in some quality time with the family at the end of the day the last thing you want to have to worry about is if you are truly feeding your family a nutritious diet. Of course we WANT to give our family the best but where do we even begin?

If you're anything like me you have spent countless hours researching the pros and cons of all the health fads thrown at us every day to no avail. When it comes to food we believe less is more! And no i don't mean eating less i mean letting nature do her thing but with a gentle helping hand. For centuries the earth has provided for us, long before pesticides, pasteurization, and preservatives people were left to grow and make their own food to provide for their families. Now I know the world has changed and we are all busy with our own day to day lives, not everyone has time to milk the cows, feed the chickens, churn the butter and bake the bread. I get it.

Although the world today is a very different place from when self sustaining was their only option, the demand for good fresh food is growing. More and more people are realizing the benefits of home grown, home made, and raw unpasteurized products! Now the question remains in how do we obtain these kinds of resources without a farm or time of our own!? Well that's where we come in! Here at Positively Grown we want to take the mystery out of what is really in your food.

My mom, dad and I run a small Jersey farm in Hopkins, MI where we milk 38 cows twice a day. We have been enjoying the benefits of Raw milk my entire life!! Raw milk is one of the most nutrient dense foods available, the pasteurization process destroys most of the living enzymes, probiotics and beneficial bacteria making it difficult for our bodies to digest. Store bought milk is a dead stagnant liquid, in many cases pasteurization is the main reason for lactose intolerance! It no longer has the enzymes that aid in the breakdown of lactose which can be difficult for our bodies to do on our own. That being said, raw milk is how milk was meant to be enjoyed. Pasteurization is a relatively new process dating back to the 40's with Michigan becoming the first state to make the sale of raw milk illegal. Prior to this everyone had a family cow! They kept their herd healthy and their milking equipment clean resulting in delicious SAFE raw milk. Overall the human race has been consuming raw milk for over 10,000 years!! And i say we get back to our roots when it comes to milk.

Aside from Raw milk we are on the path to providing you a one stop shop for all of your home grown goods, we raise pastured beef, pork, chicken, and eggs. I work with other local farmers as well to be able to provide you with raw unfiltered honey and fresh homemade bread. Just like great great grandma used to make! We do not give our animals antibiotics and they are pastured as much as possible. Our milk is tested weekly and our equipment is sanitized 4 times per day. With such a small operation it is much easier to pay close attention to the details that really matter when it comes to providing your family with the highest quality products. Now I know my family LOVES good food, and it tastes even better when you know you raised it yourself. When you become a member of Positively Grown that means you are now part of the family and we only want to give you the absolute best!
