  1. Thank you Manchester Farms!

    Thanks for your wonderful milk as well as the amazing produce from Left Bower. I also appreciate the time and effort you put into educating local students. It feels great to be able to support a local farm that cares about its community and enjoy the best milk in the process.

    Cheers,

  2. I just wanted to rave about your milk! Not only for drinking, but also for baking. I have a recipe for paska bread that calls for a cup of milk (among other ingredients), and let me tell you: what a difference using your milk makes! It just ramps up the flavor of the bread (it is sweet). The dough even feels different when I’m kneading it. The result is heavenly. And although I understand and support unreservedly your decision not to use screw tops on the milk cartons, I still wish you would! (selfish I know, but it is only a wish…) Thank you for your superior product.

    1. Hi, no our milk is not raw. We are the closest milk that you can get with out being raw! We are slightly pasteurized and non-homogenized, so we do not have to fortified our whole milk with vitamins. You get the great vitamins and Omegas from the good grasses they are eating.
      Thanks for your support!
      best,

  3. The new black and white photos are a great addition to your website. Not only do they complement the original colored photos you used, but they also kinda match the cows! This site warms my heart and soul! Great job, Dante! You seem to have the magic artistic touch!

  4. I noticed that your cows are grass fed, which is great. What do you all do if there’s bad weather and grass isn’t available? I was just curious. Keep up the good work!

    1. We feed them some silage and grains. But they are out in the pastures 24/7! We have a loafing shed, if it is real cold or raining, that they can hang out in.
      Thanks for your support!
      Best,
      Margie

  5. Hi. I recently purchased a half gallon of your organic whole milk, “old-fashioned cream on top”. Packaging copy made it sound delicious and healthy… Unfortunately, try as we might, we could not get the cream to mix at all with the (otherwise 2%) milk. So, when poured, we got clots of cream with the thinner, liquid milk.

    Suggestions? Willing to try again. Purchase was from a Giant Eagle (best sold by today, May 10). When I was recently back to this store, it didn’t look like they had this product on the shelves ….

    1. Hi Mickey,
      You have to shake our milk really well! It does separate and we use the cream on top for our coffee or berries! Please try it again and shake it real hard.
      Thanks for your support!

  6. Hello!
    I absolutely LOVE You guys. Thank you for all the hard work and dedication! I have been introducing my friends to you guys.
    I do have a question, I was reading on Organic a Consumers and they were saying how a lot of organic farms are actually Pro-GMOs and use it with some of their stuff, even though their claiming to be organic. Are you guys using any thing with GMO?
    Thanks!!:)

  7. I would like to come and buy raw milk for myself at u
    Your farm, I live here in Manchester, I can drive to ur farm if u will allow me to. Thank u, Princess. I am looking forward to hear from you.

  8. Can you expand a little on your pasteurization process? I’ve been using another milk for years that is as close to raw as I can legally get without doing a herd share. Their carton states that they heat the milk at 170-degrees for 20 seconds. How do you do yours? Our Whole Foods just started carrying your milk, and since it was slightly cheaper than the other I thought I’d try it. But I’d still like a little more info before deciding if I’m going to permanently switch or not. Thanks so much!
