Fruits : I've had cow's milk when I was a child, and it was always yellow in colour. But the milk you supply is white. Is it really cow's milk?

Fruits : Yellow color in milk is mainly due to presence of carotenoid. Some breeds have high amounts of it while others have low amount of carotenoid generation hence the yellow tinge in the milk can vary by breed, the food and other factors. Presence of less yellow tinge is nothing to worry about. It is due to the fresh seasonal diet fed to the cows. After boiling and refrigerating the milk, you can witness that the malai/cream layer on the top is slightly yellow (you can say tinge of yellow),

Fruits : If it's full-fat cow's milk, why isn't there any thick malai on it after it is boiled and cooled?

Fruits : Full fat milk from cow cannot be compared with conventional brands milk, because the latter is mainly buffalo milk. Also, in conventional brands, cream/fat is added as per percentage proportions to make different variants. Conventional full cream brands contain 6% fat. Cow full fat milk cannot be more than 4.5% fat because it is the natural lactating property of the cow that its light in terms of fat, thus easy to digest. That�s why its widely known that cow milk fat is GOOD FAT

Fruits : Can I add/change my milk requirement if I�m travelling or have guests over?

Fruits : Yes, you can do it latest by 8.30 pm a day before you want the quantities to be modified. Best method is to install Farmery Android app from Google Playstore and use the app to make modifications to your milk calendar. Alternatively, just call/ whatsapp at the Farmery Care number, minimum one day in advance if you want more/ less quantity of milk, or want to suspend the deliveries while travelling.
