The Jersey Difference

What Makes Jersey Cows So Special?

We get asked all the time why we’re so darn proud of our pampered Jersey cows. It’s true that they don’t produce the same quantity of milk as larger breeds (say Holstein, for example), but they do provide an exceptional quality of milk higher in calcium and protein as well as milk solids that help give the milk its rich, creamy texture.

You can also taste the difference a Jersey cow makes in all our flavors, including whole milks, 2% reduced fat—and especially in our fat-free milks. No other brand compares to Promised Land’s taste from Jersey cows. That’s why it’s a special breed of cow that dairy farmers covet. In fact, many retired farmers say that even though they’ve milked other breeds, they always keep at least one Jersey for their own family.
