Dairy Spotlight: Made by Cow Safe to Drink Cold Pressed Raw Milk
Put simply, we’re three Aussies who miss drinking milk like we did when we were growing up. Fetching it from the milking shed with that delicious layer of cream on top. Back then it was pretty much straight from the cow. You could say we’re traditionalists but it’s that nostalgia that’s driven us to find a new, world first method of producing raw milk that is cold pressed, delicious, nutritious and completely safe to drink. The way nature intended. Without resorting to heat pasteurisation, homogenisation and all the other processes most modern milk goes through. We hope you enjoy our milk as much as we do!

It’s not what we do to our milk that makes it special – it’s what we don’t do! We don’t heat pasteurise it, homogenise it, dilute it, standardize it, pull it apart or recombine it. Made by Cow milk comes raw, straight from our cows, and is then bottled just 15 minutes down the road in Berry NSW. So you can enjoy it just the way nature intended.
What is cold pressed raw milk?
Through careful herd management and more hygienic milking practices, we begin with healthier cows, then our high quality milk goes directly from cow to bottle. After sealing the bottles, they’re placed under extreme cold water pressure, via a patented, world first, cold pressing technique that is equivalent to taking the milk six times deeper than the deepest part of the ocean. This eliminates any harmful bacteria, whilst being gentler on milk’s nutrients - thus retaining more of milk’s natural goodness. The result is a milk that’s deliciously creamy and as close to drinking milk direct from the cow as you can get. We reckon it’s going to change the world. Well, the milk world.
Stuart and Hayley are both 3rd generation dairy farmers so milk is in their blood, so to speak! Their cows are a vital part of making this the best milk you’ll ever taste. All our milk comes from a single Jersey herd that spend their time grazing the NSW's pristine South Coast near Berry, which we think is very apt, given that Berry is Australian milk’s birthplace. We do this because Jersey milk has a higher fat content than other cows, so it’s extra creamy and extra delicious. What’s more, our farmers know every cow by name – so they are definitely well loved!
Is it safe to drink?
We use a 3 stage process to guarantee our cold pressed raw milk is 100% safe to drink, which involves:
Careful herd management
Our cows are well fed, regularly checked by a vet and all of them carry heat-time monitors (a fitbit for cows) tracking their activity and sleep patterns in real time.
More hygienic milking practices
We pay extra attention to cleaning our milking equipment and our cow’s udders.
It’s all part of a food safety plan especially designed for our dairy.
Cold high pressure to make it safe
Our patented cold pressure production method removes the harmful bacteria in raw milk, whilst retaining more of milk’s natural goodness.
The NSW Food Authority has approved our cold pressing method as being as safe or safer than heat pasteurization and every batch of Made by Cow milk is tested before it goes out to stores.
Why drink Made by Cow milk?
Made By Cow Raw Milk is cold pressed to make it safe, whilst retaining as much of milk’s natural, wholesome goodness as possible. In fact tests show our patented cold high pressure method is gentler on milk’s nutrients, which means that you get more of the rich, essential nutrients straight from the cow like vitamins B1, B2, B12, A and potassium. Made by Cow single herd Jersey milk is also naturally low GI and is loaded with plenty of the good stuff like more protein, (to help build and repair muscles and keep you feeling fuller for longer) and more calcium to help develop strong, healthy bones.
