Frequently Asked Questions


What is shelf-stable milk? 

Our shelf-stable milk is 100% Grade A milk procured from local dairies. The extended shelf-life comes from two sources: the pasteurization process which eliminates all bacteria and the Tetra packaging which is an air-tight container that keeps the product fresh until opening. You can learn more about the process here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhE5ULuz8rg.


How long is shelf-stable milk good for?

Our shelf-stable milk stays fresh for up to a year from the date of production.

Does it need to be refrigerated?

No! Our shelf-stable milk is pantry fresh.

Is shelf-stable milk the same thing as powdered milk or reconstituted milk?  

No. It is 100% Grade A milk and comes from the exact same cows as traditional refrigerated milk.


Once refrigerated, does shelf-stable milk have to remain cold?

No. If unopened, our milk can safely go from pantry, to refrigerator and back to pantry with no effects to taste or quality.
