Is Aunt Jean’s milk organic?

Is Aunt Jean’s milk raw?

What do I do with my empty bottles?
As our glass partners OI Glass say, ‘glass is life’ – infinitely recyclable! We recommend re-using or re-purposing your empty bottles; get creative! Otherwise they can be recycled kerbside. Kerbside recycled bottles are returned to OI Glass in Auckland where they either become new bottles or are used in municipal projects such as road works.
Concerning bottle return: We do offer bottle returns in some regions, and as well there are several cafes and markets around the country that offer bottle collection/return.

What’s A2?
Regarding A2 - A2 beta-casein is a protein that all our cows are tested for. A lot of "mainstream" milk companies us A1 protein cows. It has been suggested that the A2 beta protein is easier to digest and can be a solution for some who typically experience issues with lactose. For more on A2 check out this Stuff article:

How much does the milk cost?
The price of our milk varies by location & stockist. All our milk comes from the same two farms in Nelson, which means due to freight & other associated distribution costs, the price per litre differs between regions. For specific pricing by location, see your local dairy department manager.
