1lb sweet cream butter from Dogwood Lane Dairy in Worton, MD.
Henry and Kathy Myers and their children milk and tend their herd of Guernsey cattle in Owrton, MD. Henry's family has been raising Guernseys on this land since the 20's. These cows are pasture raised with a grass-based diet in season and fed supplementary corn cap and hay. Guernsey milk is exceptional not only because of it's bright and creamy yellow color, but because of a special gene in the cow and their milk. The A2/A2 gene is a variation of the typical milk beta-casein protein that is commonly found in goat, human, sheep, and non-western dairy cow herds, but more rarely in dairy herds in North America and Europe. Preliminary studies show that this protein variant may be easier to digest, especially for those with a lactose sensitivity.
