Made By Cow uses a new patented method that focuses on herd management and hygienic milking practices from a single Jersey herd on NSW's South Coast.
The milk is then bottled straight from the cow within hours and put under intense water pressure, compressing both the bottle and milk inside for several minutes. This pressure eliminates any remaining harmful bacteria, whilst being gentler on the milk’s natural nutrients.
Before the new method, untreated milk (also known as raw milk), needed to be heated to at least 72 degrees to destroy harmful bacteria. It is also often subjected to separation, homogenization, recombining and standardization, before being bottled and sold on shelf in supermarkets.
Approved for sale
The new method, which the company says is a world first, has been approved by the NSW Food Authority.
Made By Cow founder Saxon Joye said that the company is able to pay supplier farmers more than 50% more per liter than some other processors.
Made By Cow is available at all Harris Farm Markets, About Life stores and other stores in NSW.
