Fresh, wholesome, unpasteurized milk. Our dairy share is unique since we have three types of milkers in our flerd (flock+herd): Jersey Cow, East Friesian Sheep, and Nubian Dairy Goats. As the old-timers used to say, cows make the best better, goats make the best drinking milk, and sheep make the best cheese milk! When you buy a share of our flerd, then you receive a portion of the milk the flerd produces. If you would like to join the Kentucky Meadows dairy share - please send an email to edcrowleyky at kentuckymeadows.com.
Our flerd is primarily grass fed with some grain supplemented to meet nutritional requirements while milking. No hormones. No antibiotics. Healthy, and natural. Raw milk aids in keeping strong bones, skin care, weight loss, & digestion. It is unpasteurized milk, the process in which it is heated to kill bacteria. However, there are some interesting nutritional and health benefits that make raw milk worth investigating if you are trying to maintain a more natural and holistic diet. More Info

Lamb vs. Mutton
Lamb is a sheep that is typically less than 1 year old. There is little fat on lamb, and the meat can vary in color from a tender pink to a pale red. Lamb less than 3 months of age is called spring lamb. Spring lamb is extremely tender but has a milder flavor than lamb. Most sheep meat sold in the United States comes from lambs simply because mutton doesn't have much of a following in the U.S.
Mutton is meat from a sheep that is older than 1 year, ideally 3 years old. It is an intense red color and contains a considerable amount of fat. Its flavor is very strong, and you might have to acquire the taste before being able to enjoy a meal of mutton if you're an American. Our mutton is 1 1/2 to 2 years old, so it has a milder flavour. I really love the mutton - just as much (if not more) than lamb. The ground mutton makes amazing mutton burgers!!
Mutton is much more popular in the Middle East and Europe than in the United States. The gamey flavor of mutton does tend to appeal more to people who also enjoy other game meats such as deer, wild boar, rabbit, and other more exotic animals.
