Alexandre Family Farm dairy is better for your gut for several reasons:

It is A2/A2 dairy. Most cows produce milk that contains a mixture of A1 and A2 beta-casein proteins. However, Alexandre Family Farm cows only produce A2 beta-casein protein. A2 dairy is easier on digestion for many folks, and has been linked to a lower risk of some gut problems such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

It is grass-fed milk. Cows that eat grass produce milk that is higher in omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). These fatty acids have been shown to have beneficial effects on gut health, including reducing inflammation and promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria.

It is organic milk. Organic milk is produced without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. These chemicals can damage the gut microbiome, which can lead to gut problems.

It is produced on a regenerative farm. Regenerative farming practices improve soil health, which can also benefit gut health. Healthy soil contains beneficial bacteria that can help to promote digestion and gut health.

In addition to these benefits, Alexandre Family Farm dairy is also high in protein, calcium, and other nutrients that are essential for good health. If you are looking for dairy products that are good for your gut, Alexandre Family Farm is a good choice.


Here are some additional studies that support the gut-healthy benefits of A2 milk, grass-fed milk, and organic milk:

This study published in the journal Nutrients found that people who drank A2 milk had less gut inflammation than those who drank A1 milk.

• A study published in the journal Food & Function found that grass-fed milk was more effective than conventional milk at promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.

• A study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives found that organic milk was associated with a lower risk of antibiotic resistance in the gut.

Alexandre Family Farm dairy is better for the environment for several reasons:

We use regenerative farming practices. Regenerative farming practices help to improve soil health, which can help to sequester carbon from the atmosphere and mitigate climate change. Alexandre Family Farm is the nation's first certified regenerative dairy farm.

Our cows are grass-fed. Grass-fed cows produce manure that is higher in nutrients and beneficial microbes than manure from grain-fed cows. This manure can help to improve soil health and reduce the need for synthetic fertilizers.

Our milk is organic. Organic dairy production prohibits the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. These chemicals can pollute waterways and harm wildlife.

We farm in a cool, coastal climate. This climate allows our cows to graze on grass year-round, which reduces the need for feedlots and other concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). CAFOs are major sources of greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution.

If you are looking for dairy products that are better for the environment, Alexandre Family Farm is a good choice.

Here are some additional studies that support the environmental benefits of regenerative farming, grass-fed dairy, and organic dairy:

• A study published in the journal Nature found that regenerative farming can help to sequester carbon from the atmosphere.

• A study published in the journal Science found that grass-fed dairy production can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 30% compared to grain-fed dairy production.

• A study published in the journal PLOS One found that organic dairy production can reduce water pollution by up to 70% compared to conventional dairy production.

Alexandre Family Farm dairy is better for the soil for several reasons:

We use regenerative farming practices. Regenerative farming practices help to improve soil health by increasing the amount of organic matter in the soil. Organic matter is important for soil health because it helps to retain water, improve nutrient cycling, and reduce erosion.

Our cows are grass-fed. Grass-fed cows help to improve soil health by grazing on the land and depositing manure. This manure helps to fertilize the soil and improve its structure.

As a Certified Organic dairy, we do not use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides anywhere on our farm. Synthetic fertilizers and pesticides can damage soil health by killing beneficial microbes and plants.

We compost our manure. Composting manure helps to improve soil health by breaking down the manure into nutrients that can be easily absorbed by plants.


Here are some additional studies that support the soil health benefits of regenerative farming, grass-fed dairy, and organic dairy:

• A study published in the journal Nature found that regenerative farming can help to increase soil organic matter by up to 10%.

• A study published in the journal Science found that grass-fed dairy production can reduce soil erosion by up to 50% compared to grain-fed dairy production.

• A study published in the journal PLOS One found that organic dairy production can increase soil biodiversity by up to 30% compared to conventional dairy production.

 

Alexandre Family Farm dairy is better for our ecosystem for several reasons:

We use regenerative farming practices. Regenerative farming practices help to improve the health of the entire ecosystem, including the soil, water, air, and biodiversity. This can lead to a number of benefits for the environment, such as reduced greenhouse gas emissions, improved water quality, and increased biodiversity.

Our cows are grass-fed. Grass-fed cows help to improve the ecosystem by grazing on the land and depositing manure. This manure helps to fertilize the soil and improve its structure, which can help to reduce erosion and improve water quality.

We do not use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Synthetic fertilizers and pesticides can damage the ecosystem by polluting waterways, killing beneficial insects and plants, and disrupting the food chain.

We are located in a cool, coastal climate. This climate allows our cows to graze on grass year-round, which reduces the need for feedlots and other concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). CAFOs are major sources of greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution.

The way we farm is better for our cows for several reasons:

We use regenerative farming practices. Regenerative farming practices allow the cows to live a more natural life, grazing on grass and living outdoors.

Our cows are grass-fed. Grass-fed cows are healthier than grain-fed cows. They have lower levels of fat and cholesterol, and they are more resistant to disease.

We do not use hormones or antibiotics. Hormones and antibiotics are often used in conventional dairy farming, but they can be harmful to the cows. As a Certified Organic dairy, we never use these substances.

We are certified humane. This means that our farm meets the strict standards for animal welfare set by Certified Humane. Our cows are free to roam, have access to fresh water and shade, are never subjected to unnecessary pain or suffering, and are only treated with compassionate animal health practices. We love our animals and treat them with the utmost care and respect.

If you are looking for dairy products that are better for the cows, Alexandre Family Farm is a good choice.

Here are some additional studies that support the animal welfare benefits of regenerative farming, grass-fed dairy, and organic dairy:

• A study published in the journal Animal Welfare found that cows on regenerative farms had lower levels of stress hormones than cows on conventional farms.

• A study published in the journal Frontiers in Veterinary Science found that grass-fed cows had healthier immune systems than grain-fed cows.

• A study published in the journal PLOS One found that organic dairy cows had lower rates of mastitis (udder infection) than conventional dairy cows.
