The Forum Kitchen is committed to making healthy eating easy, and we deliver a range of fresh, local ingredients safely to your home, including dairy and eggs from our trusted supplier Mooberry Farm.
The farm was started in 2010 as a response to the demand for healthy, clean dairy products. In 2018, to accommodate the growing Jersey herd, Mooberry Farm moved to Kromdraai, near Krugersdorp.
The fresh, free-range eggs come from a neighbouring farm where the hens are free to roam and eat a natural diet.
The Forum Kitchen supports local farmers as well as their communities. Mooberry Farm fits right in with our philosophy, employing six dedicated staff members who create hand-made dairy products from a small factory in Kaya Sands. Here, butter, cheddar cheese, yoghurt and cream is lovingly prepared and packed ready to be delivered.
So, why does the milk from Mooberry cows taste so good?
The taste of milk, regardless of whether it is organically or conventionally produced, can differ slightly from bottle to bottle, and season to season. Factors that may impact taste include the location of the farm, soil, breed of the cow and even the time of year. Mooberry believes that you have to nourish to flourish, and the cows on their farm have the freedom to pasture all-day, which means the milk is extra creamy and delicious. All that grass is what makes the difference to the taste.
“The nutritional value of grass-fed dairy products is superior because of benefits gleaned from the pasture. The beneficial omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acids (CLA’s) are at higher levels than in conventional milk.”
All Mooberry products are free of antibiotics, growth hormones, preservatives, stabilisers or any additives. No colourants, no artificial flavours, no MSG and non-GMO. All milk from Mooberry is pasteurised to kill harmful bacteria, and Mooberry complies with all food-safety guidelines.
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy lifestyle. The Forum Kitchen and Mooberry Farm go together like milk and cookies.
