Some good info from their FAQ as we always carefully look at claims of “grass-fed”…
It says Rumiano Cheese uses grass-fed milk, but also states the cows are fed grain. How can this be?
The dairies Rumiano Cheese sources milk from are all located in Del Norte and Humboldt counties in Northern California. Due to a unique coastal climate, there is an abundance of lush grasses that grow almost all year around. During the winter months when growth is slowed, the cows are fed silage which has been harvested during the warmer time of year. On average the cows graze around 300 days a year. If the cows are unable to be in open pasture due to weather, they are fed the dry silage that is saved. However, due to the milking regiment that the cows are on, they cannot sustain on grass alone and require more nutrients which is obtained through two to six pounds of grain a day — depending on the dairy. Our organic dairies only use verified Non-GMO corn and barley mixes as well as a mineral mix with some alfalfa.
