UHT milk in tetrapak directly from 8 dairy farmers who have united in a cooperative to get a fair price for their milk. Not the international market price, which does not allow them to live. These 8 p...roducers therefore formed their own cooperative with the aim of marketing high value added pasture milk. It took them three years to draw up the specifications, find a processor and outlets. And to choose a name for their brick. It became Lait de la Baraque.
This cooperative is a little different because of its size and the decentralisation of its processing. Processing is done in Flanders by the only one who has agreed to take their milk. This milk will only be marketed in short circuits, through cooperatives and grocery shops like ours.
The cows are grass fed, GMO and soy free. The cows are raised in a traditional way and are connected to the land, respecting the environment and the welfare of the animals. In a production year, the dairy cows get at least 60% dry matter from grassland in the area concerned. The aim is to reach 70% within 5 years. 70% of the feed will be produced in the delimited area (Vielsalm, Lierneux, Gouvy, Houffalize, La Roche, Erezée and Manhay). 70% of the grassland will be permanent in order to maintain the carbon sink in the soil.
Preservation: Can be kept in the fridge for 3 days after opening.
