Just to add a little more information about Threemile Canyon Farms—the cows are all BST-free and do not receive any kind of hormones to stimulate milk production. In addition, the cows all receive a vegetarian diet, including peelings and other plant material leftovers from the crops grown on the farm. They have a 4,000-calf nursery and a 21,000 head heifer facility, and information on every single cow, which are all tagged and tracked, is kept in a computer database. Two-thirds of the milk from this farm goes to the Tillamook County Creamery Association.
