My local Town and Country Market has the occasional Producer Profile available at the store. I’ve started picking a few of them up to showcase here on the blog. See below for the text of the profile and click on the picture to view the original profile that I’ve scanned. Note that the information available on this post is not NW Farm Review’s opinion or original writing and while it may or may not represent our views it is soley taken from Town and Country Market.
Town and Country Markets Producer Profiles
Twin Brook Creamery, nestled in the shadow of the Cascade Mountain Range in Lynden, WA, is afifth-generation family farm. The Stap family raises purebred registered Jersey cows because this breed produces milk with a higher protein and butterfat content, which significantly enhances the flavor of the milk. The cows are pastured for as long as the season allows, and eat grass harvested from the farm during the non-growing season. To preserve the milk’s rich flavor, it is minimally processed and bottled in glass bottles. Rather than being pasteurized at high temperatures, Twin Brook milk is vat pasteurized at a low temperature. And whereas most milk is homogenized, this cream-at-the-top milk is not so that you can enjoy it in its most natural form. We offer half-gallons, chocolate milk, half &half and whipping cream from Twin Brook Creamery. There is a $1.65 deposit on the glass bottles.
