Grass Fed at Fairway

Upon walking into Fairway in Redhook (Brooklyn, NY) we were very pleased to see a sign letting us know all of their milk is grass fed. Also, very cool that they are using local farms, no hormones and no antibiotics. We did a dance of joy!

The crazy thing is... grass is exactly what cows should be eating, so the fact that we need labeling letting us know- well it just shows you how far off our food supply is. Now if only they wouldn't pasteurize it and kill off all it's goodness. In the meantime, it's great for milk kefir. I hope more stores adopt the labeling and practices of grass fed. It's better for all of us.

p.s. Here are two great sites, Pure Indian Foods and Eat Wild, with some really good information on Grass Fed. Click HERE and HERE.
