Private Food Club Membership
A Note from the Farmer, Amos Miller
Back in the year 2000, Amos Miller and his dad attended a meeting where Sally Fallon, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, gave an excellent speech on the importance of eating healthy food which was the start of where we are today. We enjoy good old farming the natural way. Our animals live outdoors on pasture eating the food nature intended, and we have shelter for them in the winter.
We hope you, as a member of our private club, can enjoy our large selection of fresh, raw dairy and 100% grass-fed pasture-raised beef, plus fermented veggies, bread (some bread using soaked grains), and treats. We also carry the full line of fermented cod liver oils and butter oil by Green Pasture in Nebraska.
The dairy and beef are strictly grain-free. During the warmer months of the year, they graze in the pasture supplemented with free-choice kelp minerals and salt. During the winter months they are fed high-quality wet and dry hay. Currently, the breeds of dairy cows are approximately 1000% Jersey, offering exclusively A2 dairy products. The better, old-fashioned A-2 breed which produces superior, less allergenic dairy.
The beef cattle are mostly Red Devon and Angus cross-breeds.
The buffalo is Water Buffalo.
Goats and Sheep
We dont have our own goat and sheep dairy, but the farms that help us out are local, and practice the same conscientious organic standards as we here on the Miller Farm. The lamb meats are the same.
All of the chickens are soy-free (no soy in their diet). The poultry is fed a balanced ration without needing to feed any soybeans.
The ducks and turkeys are offered as non-soy fed.
Our hogs are fed a mostly milk-based ration of whey from cheese making, and oats soaked in skim milk along with some corn.
We try to keep veal in stock, but the cost of growing a fat veal is quite expensive due to the amount of milk they consume, therefore harder to justify profit. We do run out of veal and will substitute with beef unless you tell us not to substitute.
Most of the produce is locally grown and always chemical-free, including the popcorn kernels, and processed here on the Miller Farm.
We bake our own bread with sourdough and soaked grains and are also considering sprouted grain bread which will be gluten-free. Our muffins are gluten-free and baked here in our bakery on the farm. We also make our own angel food cake and spelt noodles.
Maple Syrup & Honey
The maple syrup is collected in Vermont and carefully processed the natural way. Our local honey collector is very cautious in processing raw unheated honey from deep in the wild woods of northern Pennsylvania, where the combs are unlikely to have been exposed to chemicals or sprays. Bees do not do well other than in a natural habitat.
The nuts are prepared as recommended by Weston A. Price Foundation. Unfortunately, we are not able to buy domestic raw nuts in come cases, therefore we do use imported raw nuts for the cashews, pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, and macadamia nuts. We buy all the nuts raw, then soak and dehydrate them in order to neutralize the phytates and enhance mineral absorption and digestion.
Treats & Desserts
- Kombucha and Ginger ale drinks are made locally.
- The apple cider is from a local organic orchard and pressed in a chemical-free environment.
- The Amos Brand chips are made from local potatoes and our own pork lard.
- Almond butter is made from raw almonds and comes from Blue Mountain Organics.
- Sourdough Kvass comes from Canada.
