Desert Farms Camels
“What’s the first thing you’ll say about camel milk? “What does it taste like?” What’s the second thing you’ll say? “It tastes just like milk!” And the third thing you’ll say is “I didn’t know you could milk camels.” If you’re looking for a delicious, natural, nutrient-rich drink that supports your fast-moving life, order up. We’ll send it straight to your door PDQ (pretty darn quick). Then drain a glass. We’ll be here when you come back for more.”
Desert Farms offers three varieties: raw, pasteurized and kefir, as well as colostrum and other products like soaps and natural skin care. Currently, 150 retailers across the U.S. carry the milk, including Whole Foods, and it’s sold online. Some stores may carry the milk fresh, but most keep the product frozen.
Farmers are the heart of Desert Farms:
Our commitment to local farming communities has created a handful of family farms across America. From the rolling hills of Pennsylvania to the sunny coast of California our commitment remains stronger than ever. After all, great camel milk starts with great local farmers and a healthy herd. All camels are pasture-raised, meaning that they are allowed to eat all the different natural flora and fauna in the pastures, a natural diet their bodies can easily handle – and one that keeps them happy and healthy.
When you choose Desert Farms as your source of camel milk, you can feel great knowing you’re supporting local agriculture across the country, along with the proud heritage of American family farmers. We celebrate our family farmers for taking on the incredible task and risk of putting the world’s healthiest dairy on America’s tables with common sense, hard work, and sheer heart.
Desert Farms’ Mission
With more customers convinced in the curative powers of camel milk, the vision of California-based Desert Farms, Inc. to promote camel milk as the next “super food” is slowly being realized. Outlandish as it may seem at first pass, some studies have suggested that camel milk could help combat insulin resistance and other metabolic issues, while another study published in the Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine journal linked drinking camel milk to lower levels of oxidative stress and improvements in function and motor skills. Not surprisingly, the bulk of Desert Farms customers are parents of children with autism.
Camel milk as a tonic against disease is nothing new outside the US. In 2006, the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) saw bright prospects for camel dairy products, which could not only provide more food to people in arid and semi-arid areas, but also give nomadic herders a source of income. “We’re America’s new dairy generation, and we sell camel milk,” says Walid Abdul Wahab, the founder of Desert Farms, the first beverage company producing its own line of camel milk in North America. Wahab wants to provide the U.S. with what he calls a “clean and better dairy alternative” that is already popular in Saudi Arabia, his native country.
