Frequently Asked Questions

What are some of the benefits of goat's milk?

Goat's milk has 30% less cholesterol, 13% less lactose, and contains 13% more calcium than cow's milk.

Mornington's milk is free of antibiotics, growth hormones and preservatives.  Our producers also use only vegetable based feed with no animal by-products.

The fat molecules in goat's milk are one-fifth of the size of those in cow's milk, which makes it more easily digested by people with lactose intolerance and other sensitivities to dairy.

Goat's milk is closer to human milk, and is therefore more easily accepted by the young and frail.  Goat milk has an alkaline reaction, the same as human milk, whereas cow's milk has an acidic reaction.

Goat's milk does not form mucous (phlegm), and because of this, it is more easily tolerated by those with allergies or asthmatics.  It is more tolerated by people with liver problems or damaged livers because of the smaller fat molecules.

Goat's milk contains a more highly-evolved cholesterol than cows milk.  It is more available for absorption by the brain and body, which is essential to the health of the myelin sheaths "white matter" of the brain and nerves.

Goat's milk has the ability to "sweeten" the intestinal tract, which can help with constipation.

 

Is your milk certified organic?

Our milk is not certified organic.  Our farmers feed no animal by-products.  Mornington Dairy does not add preservatives to the milk.  It is produced and processed with a commitment to purity, safety and wholesomeness.

 

Is it possible to buy raw goat's milk?

It is illegal to sell raw unpasteurized milk.

 

Can babies drink the goat's milk?

Breast is Best! Babies under 3 months must have a folic acid supplement, as goat's milk is naturally low in this nutrient.  For babies under 2 years, goat milk can be a part of their diet but always check with your health care professional.

 

What do goats eat?

Our goat's diets are forage based.  They mostly eat hay and hay crops (eg. hay silage), and grains like corn, barley and oats.  Some producers may also feed their goats minerals for a balanced diet.

 

How do you reduce the milk fat content from whole milk to 2%?

To reduce the milk fat content from whole milk to 2%, we separate raw cream.  This is done by a centrifugal force in-line separator before the milk is pasteurized and homogenized.

 

Is your packaging recyclable?

Yes.  All of our packaging is recyclable.  This includes our milk bags, milk pouches, milk cartons, etc.
