OUR AHIMSA PRACTICE
Gita Nagari was founded on the ancient principle of ahimsa (nonviolence). As such, we opened the first and only certified slaughter-free dairy farm in North America. In everything we do we strive to maintain the highest standards in animal welfare, environmental justice, and personal integrity. Motivated by the need for change in this world, rather than simply being driven for profit, the products offered by our farm are not just commodity purchases but are investments in the transformation of our collective future.
OUR AHIMSA DAIRY
All of our ahimsa milk is A2 quality from our lifetime-protected Brown Swiss herd, nothing added and nothing subtracted. It is not raw, as State Regulations mandate pasteurization, though we pasteurize using low heat (145 F), so the nutrient profile is very close to raw milk and the taste our milk is also comparable to raw milk. It is never homogenized.
For orders being shipped:
Please note that all orders placed by Saturday of each week will be shipped out the following Monday/Tuesday. This is to ensure that packages reach their destination prior to the weekend, thus avoiding delays. All packages are shipped with ice packs in insulated boxes and tracking info is sent to the email given during ordering. Gita Nagari is not responsible for any lost, damaged, or perished items.
