Enjoy the Seasonality of Coulter Farms’ Dairy Products 
Screen Shot 2017-03-09 at 3.29.51 PMIf you’ve been buying Coulter Farms dairy products all winter, you’ll soon notice them becoming brighter and darker gold in color. Beta-carotene (Vitamin A) and other natural phytochemicals give their 100% grass-fed dairy products their distinctive ‘sun-golden’ color and green pastures magnify this color.  Enjoy the seasonality of the milk’s color, watch for the changing color, and be reminded that it matters what your food eats!
