Restarting Dairy: Whole Foods Market feature on Alexandre Family Farm

From Whole Foods Market's Restarting Dairy story featuring Alexandre Family Farm

How far have we strayed from where milk started? It just comes from a cow, after all. Right? Well, it’s much more complicated than that, but the Alexandre Family Farm is turning the clock back to focus on farm practices and a type of milk from the beginning days of dairy production. Over time, selective breeding for greater milk production has resulted in unsought changes in composition. To avoid that, the Alexandres only breed cows and bulls that both carry the A2 gene, a specific gene that is used to define all milk. With this dairy restart, they hope to bring dairy back into homes across the country.
