Why does your milk contain so much fat?

You should probably ask the cows. Jersey cows simply produce milk that is thicker as it contains less water, and therefore more fat, protein and minerals per litre than regular milk. Our full fat milk contains 6% fat, whereas regular milk usually contains about 3.5%. Jersey milk contains on average 4.25 grams of protein whilst regular milk is just 3.5 grams. There is a lot of flavour in the fat of Jersey milk and that’s what makes for such a rich, creamy taste. We think it’s far better than normal milk. But then, we’re a bit biased in that respect.
