Happy cows make better milk

Our herd.

Our extended family of Holsteins have constant, calm, easy management and responsible care from birth to maturity. They are never confined and graze on high quality forage year-round. Because they are lactating cows, they are also fed a balanced diet based on the silage we grow. We do not give our cows injections of growth hormones or feed antibiotics. We at Hickory Hill Milk are always considering new improvements to promote the health of their cows. When our cows are healthy, it’s reflected in the milk they produce.  

Our process.

Hickory Hill Milk is fresh, local milk collected on our farm twice a day and bottled on-site five days a week. Our milk is all-natural, old-fashioned whole milk. It’s guaranteed to be rBGH (hormone) and antibiotic free. We process our milk as little as allowable for flavor, nutrients and freshness. Hickory Hill Milk is low-temp pasteurized, meaning it is heated to 145-degrees and held there for 30 minutes then cooled as quickly as possible. This gives milk the smooth, sweet taste of yesteryear and preserves the naturally occurring enzymes that help your body easily digest it. Granted, this process takes more effort but we don’t mind. The great taste is worth every minute. Hickory Hill Milk is also non-homogenized, a rare find these days and a return to nostalgia when a thick layer of cream rose to the top of each bottle.  

Our milk.

Because Hickory Hill Milk is non-homogenized and low-temp pasteurized all elements in the milk remain intact and beneficial to your body. Both are reasons why our milk sets us apart from others at the dairy counter. Some of the benefits of low-temp pasteurized, non-homogenized milk are:  

  • Loaded with high-quality protein that helps burn body fat, generate energy, and build muscle tone. 
  • Full of Vitamins A and D and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), an antioxidant shown to offer protection against breast cancer in women. 
  • The natural sugars in non-homogenized milk aid in calcium absorption, contributing to the formation of strong bones, lowering blood pressure in approximately 1/3 of people with hypertension, improving blood lipid levels, lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol, lowering the risk of colon cancer and contributing to osteoporosis prevention.
  • Hickory Hill Milk also contains healthy bacteria that helps protect against nasty little organisms that cause diseases.

Happy customers

I was never a milk drinker.

Growing up I remember Herndon Dairy delivering milk to our door. Back then I loved milk but when they closed their doors so did my cravings for milk. I was a cookie dipper or cereal eater (not a milk drinker) from that point on until the Dorn's started bottling their own milk. Hello "real milk"! Our family has been Hickory Hilll Milk-aholics ever since. Not to mention it has helped with my issues of digestion and I lost a few pounds to boot. My family of four go thru three gallons of whole milk (at least) and one gallon of chocolate each week.

I come 2 times a week to get white milk for the family and go old buttermilk for me. Lucky for me I only 12 miles from Hickory Hill  Farms.
