Whole Milk

Hatcher Family Dairy Whole Milk is pasteurized, but not homogenized. That means, that the cream, rather than being mixed into the milk, will be sitting on top of the jug when you get it home. Some folks scoop this off and enjoy the full cream flavor in their coffee or tea, while others just shake up the jug, mix it in and drink it.

For those of us who grew up in the colder climates where the milkman still came to the house every day, we can remember going to the door on a cold winter morning to see the milk bottle with a little stack of frozen cream coming out the top and with the cardboard lid sitting on top like a hat. That too, was milk that was not homogenized.

When it comes to toddlers and kids, whole milk proves to be the next best option, if the child is not breastfeeding or drinking a toddler formula. Whole milk is a highly nutritious drink and an unsurpassed alternative for babies and toddlers, who need extra strength. For infants who lack a high fat diet, the extra amount of calcium and fat present in whole milk acts as a perfect substitute. The calories in fat help in the growth and brain development of the child. “Eighty percent of brain development occurs in the first two years of life, so you want the fat at that point,” says Frank R. Greer, a professor of pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health

The benefits of pasture derived milk, the increased levels of omega 3 fatty acids, flavenoids and beta carotene are attached to the fat. So our whole milk, having the highest fat content, contains the highest levels of these over two percent milk or skim when our cows are grazing lush pasture.

And right atop that taste pyramid is, you guessed it, Hatcher Family Dairy Whole Milk.

2% Milk

The “2” refers to just 2% butterfat content in the milk. We have removed almost half of the cream in the milk, while still maintaining that famous Hatcher Family Dairy taste.

Two percent milk contains nine essential nutrients and vitamins, including protein, vitamins A, D, and B-12, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin, niacin, zinc and magnesium. Children who drink milk tend to have “superior” overall nutrient intakes compared with children who don’t drink milk, according to a study released last year by researchers at Environ International Corp., the University of Vermont, and the National Dairy Council. Make sure that your child gets enough.

Because obesity is a risk factor for heart disease and often is accompanied by cholesterol problems, The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends low-fat milk (no more than 2 percent fat) for 1-year-olds for whom weight or obesity is a concern, Greer says. That new advice is aimed at 1-year-olds who are already overweight, have overweight parents, or have a family history of heart problems.

Skim Milk

One question we are always asked is “Does skim milk provide the same nutritional value as whole milk or 2 percent milk?” The answer is an unequivocal Yes! The only difference in the three kinds of milk is the amount of fat contained in the milk.

Skim milk provides the additional benefit of being ideal for low or no fat diets. While nutritionists recommend whole milk for most children up to the age of two, for anyone older than two, has a family history of obesity, or family history of heart disease, that recommendation changes to skim milk.

As we age, we all need to make sure that we have enough calcium in our diets to maintain strong bones. This is especially true for women.

What better way to stay healthy than with three glasses of Hatcher Family Dairy Skim Milk every day!

Chocolate Milk

One of our customers tells a story of the reaction of their teenager, who was very used to drinking Hatcher Family Dairy Chocolate milk, who when given a glass of chocolate milk completely turned up his nose and asked “What’s wrong with this milk?  It doesn’t taste right.”  Well, as it turns out, the mom had bought another brand of chocolate milk and such was the difference in rich flavor and texture from our milk that the teenager could tell right away.

We’ll bet that you will be able to too!

While most people will start to drink chocolate milk initially for the taste, there are more and more who are drinking it for its health benefits.

Buttermilk

Originally, buttermilk was the liquid left behind after churning butter out of cream, hence the name Buttermilk.

The fermentation that takes place in traditional buttermilk is accomplished by strains of lactic acid-producing bacteria, sparking a chemical reaction due to the environment. Traditionally, before cream was skimmed from whole milk, it was left to sit for a period of time to allow the cream and milk to separate. During this time, the milk would naturally be fermented by the lactic acid-producing bacteria in the milk. Today, we achieve the same results by adding a culture of lactic acid bacteria to stimulate the naturally occurring bacteria found in the old-fashioned product.

It’s this lactic acid that gives buttermilk its sour taste, and what allows it to have much longer shelf life than other milk.

Many people drink our buttermilk because they love the taste of it, while others will use our buttermilk for baking because it tastes so good in their recipes. Just think of the beautiful aroma of Southern Buttermilk Biscuits right from the oven and let your mind wander to the thoughts of Sunday breakfast on the porch followed by a hot cup of coffee flavored with Hatcher Family Dairy Cream.

Jumpin Jimmy

Most of us Hatchers work out in the gym four or five days a week. Some say we’re crazy looking for more exercise after a day of hard work on the farm, but for us, its not only a matter of staying in ideal condition, but it’s a form of relaxation. As any of you who workout at the same time every day know, you tend to see the same people in the gym each day. In the weight room, the men are not shy about making “friendly” comments.

Most comments are made in good fun, but one we that kept hearing was that we seemed to be able to lift more weight, run with less stress, and were generally less fatigued than many others.

They call us “Farm Strong”.

We started thinking, now we’re not a family of supermen and superwomen, so what was it that gave us that extra punch? Then we noticed a number of studies that cited chocolate milk as not only tasting great, but having superior to help athletes recover from tough workouts and to help restore and build muscle.

In part, this is due to the whey protein in all milk, but is especially true for chocolate milk. This got us thinking: what if we added some whey protein to our Hatcher Family Dairy Chocolate Milk? Would that make it an even better drink for building muscle and helping athletes recover?

One of the issues that we had to address was the whey protein simply doesn’t taste very good. (For any of you who have tried it mixed with water or other liquids, you’ll know what we mean.)

After a few trial runs, we achieved what we think is the perfect energy drink. We have been able to retain the wonderful, rich taste of our Chocolate Milk in a drink that has 30 grams of great tasting, muscle building, and recovery protein in every pint. And, as a bonus for those looking for an energy boost, Jumpin Jimmy has 160 mg of caffeine.

Jumpin Jimmy, the perfect energy and protein drink for the whole family.

Get some today and feel the energy and power of being Farm Strong.
