I am interested in making cheese with your milk. What is the maximum temperature during pasteurization that your milk is heated? How can I tell how fresh the milk is? I found your milk at my local Krogers it is the best. I will always pay the extra to support local farmers who strive to bring quality products to the table.

After browsing previous comments I found the pasteurization reaches a temp that is not ideal for cheese making. Maybe you could supply a cheese makers special milk. Thank you for your time.

Being a new mom to a 5-month old, I have been researching natural foods, since I don't want my son eating or drinking unnatural, pumped with growth hormone-type food and drink. My husband and I also wanted to eat healthier and more natural. I was hesitant to try things and especially hesitant to put your half and half in my coffee, because I'm a coffeeaholic. But I abolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your product! I can't wait to buy the milk! And, I'm thrilled that it's bottled in glass. Along with your farming methods (crop rotation, natural fertilizers, etc), it all seems so simple and easy! From Charleston, SC -- Thank you!!

No milk is free of hormones. This milk may be from cows which have not been given any artificial or supplemental hormones, but it is most certianly not FREE of hormones. All commercial milk is free of antibiotics. All milk is tested repeatedly for the presence of antibiotics and there are BIG problems for the farmer when any is found. If you want to claim that your cows aren't given any antibiotics or supplemental hormones, feel free, but don't try to make it sound like regular milk is full of both.

I have recently begun purchasing your milk and really enjoy it, and I appreciate your efforts to provide a superior product. What I wanted to know is, I live in Charlottesville VA and would like to know if there is a drop off point for milk bottles once I have finished with them. I am a firm believer in recycling, but rather dropping the glass off to be recycled, I would love to be able to return the bottles to you. I am not interested necessarily in receiving deposit money, just want to keep costs down for you all. Thank you in advance for your reply.

I want to try your buttermilk but first want to know if it is homogenized and if it is whole milk and what cultures are in it. Thanks!

I just had your milk for the first time yesterday and loved it. I was wondering whether the cattle were grass fed or not? Thanks for the info and I can't wait to visit Whole Foods again.

Are your cows all "pasture-fed"? Thanx,

I just wanted to say thanks so much for a great product! I am 7 months pregnant and have found that Homestead's milk is my main craving. I go through about 2 gallons a week!

I am very confused. The Fair Lakes, Vienna and Reston stores that I go to have homogenized milk in bottles (although for years they sold NON-homogenized). I have also called the stores and asked if they were going to get the non-homogenized milk again (I make cheese) and they said no. Many people on this blogsite have mentioned creamline milk. Either they assume that if milk is in a bottle it is creamline and they are not reading the caps or ?? So, how (or can I) get non-homogenized milk from Whole Foods?????

Thank you so much for selling this delicious milk to Whole Foods. I read about this milk in the Washington Post last week and since my father had a milk route in Pennsylvania in the 30's and 40's I never thought I would taste milk like that again. I used to get up at 2:30 a.m. sometimes and help him deliver. You are bringing back the "good old days".

I just want to thank you for keeping your milk free of hormones and anti-biotics and distributed in glass bottles. I used to be able to buy your milk at my local Harris Teeter store, but since the gas crisis several months ago, it is no longer available. I need milk for my digestive tract, and I can't have hormones or antibiotics and milk which is ultra-pasteurized and/or stored in plastic bottles. Currently, I am unable to find milk locally which meets all of these criteria, and it is adversely affecting my health. I wish I could get your milk, it's the best I've had in many years, but I can't. If you happen to have any suggestions for me as to where I can get "good milk" locally, I'd really appreciate it. (I live in Concord, NC.) I hope you will continue to produce such "healthy milk" for generations to come. Sincerely, Eleanor Adams

Barbara, We do sell non-homogenized creamline milk at the Reston & Vienna stores. The bottle cap is gold. If you don't see it ask to speak with the dairy manager, it could be that it is sold out. Thank you.

Marc, Thank you, and yes our cows are grass fed.

Hello Donnie, I usually only buy organic and preferably local-organic if possible. Unfortunately that's not an option when it comes to milk at the supermarket. I was really glad to find your milk, although you guys aren't certified organic, you are a sustainable and local company and you have a delicious product. Thank You!

Hi Donnie, It certainly sounds like Homestead Creamery is truly an example for others to follow! I wanted to ask you: how many times can your milk bottles be reused? why do they "wear out"? thanks!

We offer your pasteurized, unhomogenized (cream-on-top) whole milk (with the gold tops), as well as your homogenized 2 percent (blue top) and chocolate milk here at the Sausser Farms Market in Christiansburg, VA. We have had customers request the milk with the green tops. What exactly is that?

Hi, i have been buying your milk from Kroger, but considering how much the 7 of us drink...my special trips to Kroger are sometimes too much and I was wondering if there is any chance that you will ever deliver to the Forest, Bedford County area. I believe I could drum up quite a few customers and would be happy to try. Thanks! Wendy Walkup

My fiance and I have been enjoying all of your products - we purchase them at the Kroger's in Morgantown. It's hard to buy quality food in a college town / party town. God bless you all from the bottom of our hearts. You are greatly appreciated. MONTANI SEMPER LIBERI
