Pebble Cove Farm is dairy free!

We have always served Organic milk, but we now realize that Organic or not, these are the facts of where dairy products come from:

Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do: to nourish their young. In order to force them to continue producing milk, they are impregnated by artificial insemination every year. Calves are taken away from their mothers within a day of birth. Mother cows can be heard calling for their calves for days. Male calves are destined to end up in cramped veal crates or feedlots where they will be fattened for beef, and females are sentenced to the same fate as their mothers.
After their calves have been taken away from them, mother cows are hooked up, two or more times a day, to milking machines. The average diary cow today is forced to produce more than four times as much milk as cows did in 1950.
A cow’s natural lifespan is about 20 years, but cows used by the dairy industry are typically killed after about five years because their bodies wear out from constantly being pregnant or lactating.

The good news is Pebble Cove Farm is delighted to be offering two delicious choices. Organic coconut milk or organic soy milk will be in your kitchenette to be enjoyed with our homemade granola and locally roasted coffee. Let us know which you would prefer.

This may be a tiny step towards a more compassionate kind world but let’s all take it together!

Thank you for your continued support and hope to see you on the farm!
