Having fresh dairy products on the homestead is great. Fresh milk and cream, cheese, and a host of other healthy products can be enjoyed.
Did you know that raw milk is also good for your soil?
Over the past several years, there has been some very interesting research on raw milk and soil fertility.
I first read an article about how a farmer from Nebraska had started dumping milk on his fields. It didn’t start out as a way to build soil health, but he eventually noticed amazing results.
The farmer saw how his cows would make a beeline for the grass that had been sprayed with raw milk. He also noticed that the grass appeared greener and seemed to grow faster. The soil was softer and more porous.
