Tired of The Same Old Donkeys & Elephants This Election Year? Vote Goat!
Win a Year’s Supply of Goat Milk Goodness and
Other Daily and Weekly Prizes Now Through Election Day
With Election Day just weeks away and debates between “donkeys” and “elephants” heating up, Redwood Hill Farm – the award-winning producer of America’s first and favorite goat milk yogurts and kefirs – is shining a spotlight on goats – the unsung heroes of dairy. After all, goat’s milk is the most consumed milk in the world, and the original Greek yogurt was made from goat’s milk.
Everyone who likes Redwood Hill Farm’s Facebook page and shares a post on their favorite flavor of yogurt is automatically entered into a grand prize drawing for a chance to win a year’s supply of their award-winning artisan goat cheeses and free goat yogurt and kefir coupons each month throughout their 45th anniversary year in 2013. Daily and weekly “goat goody” prizes are also being awarded now through Election Day Nov. 6 (entry rules apply).
“A vote for the goat dairy my parents founded in 1968 is a vote for sustainability, humane animal care and healthy, natural dairy products of the highest quality,” said Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery Owner Jennifer Bice, who lives with her award-winning herd on the family’s solar powered goat farm, which was the first Certified Humane® goat dairy in the U.S. “Consumers contact us every day sharing stories of how they enjoy our delicious, easy-to-digest goat dairy products, and we are excited to reward their support and creativity with our ‘Vote Goat’ campaign.”
According to Registered Dietitian Tamara Duker Freuman, here are three good reasons to give “the other white milk” from goats a try:
- Goat’s milk is naturally lower in lactose than cow’s milk, making it easier to digest for people who are mildly lactose intolerant.
- Goat’s milk dairy is as good of a source of calcium—if not better—than cow’s milk dairy. According to the USDA’s National Nutrient Database, one cup of goat’s milk actually has about 18% MORE calcium than an equivalent serving of cow’s milk.
- Unlike other calcium rich foods, goat’s milk actually seems to enhance iron absorption.
