Miller's Farm has their own camels on the farm! Mama and baby are happy and producing plenty of milk. The camels eat organic (chemical free) grass most the year, or dry hay in the winter (chemical free transition hay).
Camel milk is very easy to digest and has a slight vanilla flavor. It is purchased often by parents with autistic kids who have a hard time digesting casein. It has also been used as a replacement for infant formula for infants who do not tolerate cow or goat milk based formula.
