They bottle and market the milk themselves, so they have control over every step of the process. This allows for a quality product which can be quickly delivered. Most other producers sell their milk to cooperatives who sell it to processors who sell it to distributors who sell it to markets who sell it to you. Milk from other producers goes through many hands before you get it and is distributed over large areas.
This breed is world renowned for the quality of its milk, which contains higher concentrations of proteins, solids, butterfat, and beta-caroteen than other breeds. Milk sold in supermarkets comes mostly from Holsteins, which produce larger quantities of more watery milk. Due to their breeding, Holstein milk also contains higher levels of Bovine Growth Hormone than Jersey milk.
