Of course the pudding is made with milk that comes from female cows, but those aren't the women I'm referring to. Echo Farm is an all-women operated farm (1 of 165,102 female run farms in the U.S.)
Not only do I feel good about supporting an all female business, these women treat their cows with only the highest amount of respect and care. At their farm in Hinsdale, N.H, their cows' comfort is one of their top priorities.
Their milking cows are let out twice a day for "recess." This gives their girls a chance to get off the cement floor of the milking parlor. They are housed in stall free barns, which means the cows are not tied up and are free to roam about the barn.
They have fresh feed and water available to them at all times and are milked twice a day (once every 12 hours). Their cows are given bedded packs to sleep on, made with sawdust, that allow the animals a soft place to lay down and room to stretch out.
Echo Farm makes delicious pudding that is Kosher and Gluten Free. You can find sensational flavors that are named after their original 6 cows. Check out Miracle's Chocolate made with Ghiradelli cocoa, Lolly's Butterscotch, and Candle's Coffee Caramel. They also make Spiced Pumpkin and Coconut Cream pudding.
Fit's Tips: Each serving contains fresh whole milk, so it's a delicious treat that has 15-23% of your daily calcium needs. Just remember it is made with whole milk so there are 6 grams of fat per serving, but if you are craving something milky this might just be the treat.
