Grass Point Farms' full line of pasture based dairy products includes

"We are excited to be offering a full line of pasture based dairy
products and growing this specialty niche for national distribution,"
says Chad L. Pawlak, president. "By offering initial distribution
throughout the Midwest, consumers will come to know the benefits of
locally raised pasture based dairy products and demand is sure to

Scientific studies suggest that pasture raised dairy products and
meats have a more beneficial ratio of "good fats" to "bad fats" when
compared to dairy and meat products that come from animals on high
grain diets. Omega 3 fatty acids are considered the "good fats" while
Omega 6 fatty acids are thought of as the "bad fats." Studies also
recommend that maintaining a balanced ratio of Omega 6 fats to Omega 3
fats is a very important component in a healthy diet.

Another key nutritional difference between grain-fed and grass-fed
dairy products revolves around another type of "good fat" known as
conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA. Like Omega 3 fats, pasture raised
dairy products tend to have higher levels of this "good fat." Ongoing
studies continue to document the health benefits of CLA, suggesting
that CLA may be beneficial in combating arteriosclerosis (clogged
arteries) and reducing the risk of cancer.

The milk for Grass Point Farms' dairy products comes from farms where
the cows graze on the lush pastures of Wisconsin's rolling hills. This
ancient approach to dairy farming allows cows to spend their days
roaming the pastures and grazing on their natural diet of grasses. It's
this diet that produces cows that live longer, have fewer health
problems and produce the purest, most wholesome milk possible, free of
artificial growth hormones and regular antibiotics. Grass Point Farms
are also exclusively family farms, where the family provides more than
50 percent of the farm labor. "We put the family back into farming,"
said Pawlak.

Grass Point Farms, a brand of Organic Farm Marketing, Inc., brings the
simple goodness of pasture raised dairy cows to today's consumer. All
Grass Point Farms products have been made solely from the milk of
Certified Humane, pasture raised, grass fed cows.
