The aim of Jones Family Farm is to help reconnect families and children with real food from right here in New Zealand.
Consumers are becoming more educated and aware of the different options available and are actively looking for alternatives with beneficial health properties. Sheep milk is a considered option for those who have difficulty digesting bovine’s milk, with twice the protein of bovine’s milk it is easier to digest. It is also a naturally A2-type milk, free from the A1-beta casein protein which has been associated with digestive discomfort such as bloating. With sheep milk containing about a third more energy than goat or cow milk, it makes it favourable for high-performance athletes.
For those who get eczema or upset digestive systems from bovine milk, sheep milk is easier to digest, as it contains A2 type proteins. A cup of sheep’s milk has double the amino acids, protein, fat, calcium, and magnesium to bovine’s milk. It is also high in B12 and folate.
Not only is sheep milk gentle on tummies, it’s also gentle on the environment – for every litre of bovine milk produced, triple the amount of sheep milk can be made for the same carbon footprint.
