Grass-fed, raw milk and milk kefir for your dogs, for your cats, and for your chickens.
You know what milk is, but exactly what is kefir?
Kefir is a fermented milk drink, made by culturing milk using kefir grains. Kefir grains are cultures of yeast and lactic acid bacteria. The microorganisms in the kefir grains multiply and ferment the sugars in the milk, turning it into kefir. The nutrients in the fermented kefir make it a good source of probiotics.
While yogurt is best known for it’s probiotic properties, kefir is a far better probiotic.
Kefir contains many different bacteria. These are the bacteria strains in our milk kefir grains;
Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus keﬁr, Lactococcus cremoris, Lactococcus lactis, Streptococcus thermophilus, Enteroccous faecium, Bifidobacterium bifidum.
These make it an extremely potent source of probiotics, more potent than most other fermented dairy products. It is also rich in calcium, protein and B-vitamins. Our full fat kefir also contains vitamin K2. These nutrients are beneficial for bone health, digestion and the immune system.
Because many of our pets have digestive problems, kefir is good for their gut. Particularly following a round of antibiotics. Traditionally, pet owners have used a tablespoon of yogurt to help adjust the bacteria in their pet’s intestines. However, kefir adds more benefits than yogurt because of the many minerals and amino acids, like Tryptophan, present in kefir. Because kefir contains calcium and magnesium, it is good for a healthy nervous system, therefore having a calming effect on the nerves. Vitamins B12, B1, and vitamin K, are good for healthy skin and energy.
What we provide is a grass-fed, raw milk kefir. Cows were designed to eat grass, and their systems do well on it. We also make our kefir from milk that is raw. Much of the good is compromised when the milk is pasteurized and homogenized. Therefore, we believe that grass-fed, raw milk, makes the best-for-your-pet kefir.
