About Henry Dairy Farms

Henry farms has been operating from its current location since October of 1918.  

Currently, the fourth generation is helping to run the daily operations on the farm with the fifth generation already getting their feet wet helping around the farm.  

August of 2019.  We received our Raw Milk License through the state of Pennsylvania.  We did this to meet the growing demand for a raw milk supplier in our area and to increase our business opportunities as a family owned and operated farm. 

Our cows are fed a TMR (Total Mixed Ration) of feed.  We have two full time cow nutritionists working with our farm on a weekly and sometimes daily basis to ensure that our cows are getting the correct amount of vitamins and minerals needed to correctly meet their needs during their various stages of life around the farm.  Our feed is mostly made up of a variety of grasses but there are other grains and minerals mixed in as well.  

No, we are currently keeping the animal contact limited to employees only.  

Raw Milk

Raw milk is milk taken directly from an animal without any outside modifications.  In our case the milk comes straight from the cow into the milk tank where it is cooled and then bottled and sold to consumers.  

The only thing done to the milk from the time it exits the cow till it is in the bottle for consumers to enjoy is the process of cooling the milk to a tasty 38 to 40 degrees.  

We believe so.  We have people in all stages of life drinking, enjoying and benefitting from our milk.

The FDA states that “raw milk can carry harmful bacteria, such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria, and warns that failing to pasteurize milk can pose serious health risks, particularly for people with weakened immune system, older adults, pregnant women, and children (FoodFacts, August 2012).”

 We recommend no longer than 7 days.  

We do not recommend that practice.  

Pasteurization is the process of heating milk up to 150 degrees for 30 minutes. 

Raw milk is unpasteurized milk which has not been through the heating process.  

A1 is a beta casein protein found in milk that is difficult for some people to digest. 

While A2 milk protein is easier for most people to digest, alleviating digestive discomfort.   

Homogenized means the cream has been permanently mixed with the milk.  Non-homogenized milk is also known as Creamline.  This is where the cream still comes to the top even after pasteurization. Henry Farms of Knox will be producing Creamline milk.

Butterfat is different depending on the breed and make up of each individual cow.  Certain breeds are known to have more butterfat than others.  The Butterfat content in the milk changes the flavor of the milk.  Some consumers may enjoy a lower butterfat content and others may enjoy more.  It really is a taste preference. 

Milk from Henry Dairy Farms contains 3.5% butterfat.  

We currently milk 100% Holsteins. Holsteins are known not to have large amounts of butterfat in their milk but for the large amount of milk they produce.
