Rockview organics give you more of the good stuff. And they’re naturally gluten-free!
Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the risk of heart attack, support brain health, and boost immune function. Organic dairy has 50% more.2
This mineral is essential for total health—supporting everything from oxygen transportation to muscle growth.3
Vitamin E derives power from its antioxidant properties, supporting the skin, eyes, and immune system.4
These nutritional powerhouses support eye, skin, heart, and male reproductive health, and may even protect against some cancers.5
Rockview’s organic products are certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI) and have the USDA organic seal.
Yes. Processing is part of organic certification. Site-specific organic certifications, policies, and procedures are regularly reviewed for compliance.
Our organic farms must comply with all the National Organic Program (NOP) standards. With an average of more than one acre per cow of organic grazing area and access to pasture in excess of NOP grazing requirements, our well-fed cows enjoy clean water, fresh air, shade, and sunshine year-round. Regular government, independent, and internal inspections help us make sure we’re in compliance.
Rockview® Milk is a nutritional powerhouse, with multiple essential nutrients and lots of protein in every glass. Plus, it’s naturally gluten-free.
Evidence is in! Studies show that chocolate milk is at least as effective as—and may be more effective than—sports recovery drinks with the same nutritional profile.6
We can’t say it enough: Proteins are the body’s building blocks. And growing children need lots and lots of it!9
This mineral is critical for nervous system and brain function, healthy metabolism, glowing skin, and even normal thyroid hormone production.10
Did you know your body needs B2 to process iron? This vitamin is also necessary for a normal metabolism, healthy eyes, normal energy levels, and strong red blood cells.11
A diet with enough B12 helps keep your body and mind energized and able to form healthy red blood cells. B12 also helps keep your immune system in tip-top condition.12
This nutrient can help you maintain normal blood pressure, keep your nervous system running smoothly, and even help reduce muscle cramps.13
For normal bone growth and development, beautiful teeth,7 a strong metabolism, and healthy cells, phosphorus is a heavy hitter.
Definitely not true! Cup for cup, Rockview Chocolate Milk has about 10%–20% less sugar than soda. While there is some added sugar, chocolate milk also has all the same essential nutrients as white milk. Also, offering chocolate milk can be a great way to increase kids’ calcium intake. In fact, researchers who reported their findings in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found a positive association between drinking plain and flavored milk and nutrient intake in kids. They also reported no association between either type of milk and childhood obesity.
Not only is there no evidence to support this claim, there is ample evidence showing that raw milk can pose serious health risks. A recent health notice published by the FDA warns consumers that pasteurization of milk is a safe and effective way to prevent serious foodborne illness, including outbreaks of foodborne illness, tuberculosis, brucellosis, salmonellosis, scarlet fever, and listeriosis, and that drinking raw milk puts people at risk—a risk that’s especially high among pregnant women and young children.8
Drinking Rockview® 100% juice, without all the additives and sugars, is a great way to get a refreshing boost. And, like so many of our delicious products, it’s naturally gluten-free.
Humans are one of the few mammals whose bodies can’t make vitamin C. So drinking pure juices high in this vitamin is important for fighting disease and maintaining a healthy heart.17
Free radicals will wreak havoc on our bodies if left unchecked. Antioxidants can protect against disease by helping keep this damaging force under control.18
A diet with adequate iron helps protect against fatigue and anemia, and keeps your body’s red blood cells strong and healthy.3
Each Rockview product has a nutritional information box printed on its packaging. You can also access this information on our Products Page. Just select the product you’d like to know more about.
Yes, as long as it contains 100% fruit juice and doesn’t have added sugar. In moderation, 100% fruit juice can be a great way to sneak in an extra serving of fruit! You might want to visit the Mayo Clinic website’s page on the topic of fruit juice and kids to learn more.
A daily serving of Rockview® Yogurt is a sweet little way to get a big nutritional boost that’s naturally gluten-free! It’s sweetened with naturally milled cane sugar, and has no corn syrup or artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
Evidence shows that some strains of good bacteria may promote digestive system health and even boost the immune system.20
Yogurt has all the same great benefits as milk, including vitamin D. Did you know this incredible nutrient may even protect against diseases such as multiple sclerosis and cancer?21
Proteins help everything in the body grow, function, and heal. They’re especially important for children, whose bodies are busy building toward adulthood.9
Because it’s made from milk, yogurt is an excellent source of calcium. This mineral supports bones, muscles, metabolism, and even brain health.4
Some research has shown that eating a low-fat dairy snack can leave you feeling fuller and more satisfied.22
The vast majority of Rockview® Farms dairy products are made from milk from our family-owned farms. That means we’re there through the entire process, making sure you get the highest quality, best tasting products imaginable!
No. And, as a matter of fact, none of our products ever have or ever will! Our cows have been rBST-free for over 50 years.
Yes, but just enough naturally milled cane sugar to make it wonderfully sweet and delicious! Plus, our yogurt does not contain corn syrup of any kind, and has no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
The Rockview® market basket of dairy products is teeming with foods that are good for you and naturally gluten-free!
Cottage cheese is an amazing food, providing a ton of the stuff your body needs—protein, B complex vitamins, healthy fats, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, and selenium.
Yep, you heard us right! New research continues to reveal the great health benefits of butter when consumed in moderation.23 It’s rich in fat-soluble vitamins, healthy saturated fats, and linoleic acid, just to name a few.
In moderation, this delicious addition gives your body lots of healthy fats, and it may even have an appetite-reducing effect.22
Like yogurt, buttermilk is made using live, active cultures of good bacteria, which means it contains probiotics shown to help keep your digestive tract healthier.20
Half & Half
Because it has no trans fats or hydrogenated oils, Rockview® Half & Half is a delicious and naturally healthy alternative for many non-dairy creamers.
Lilly Sour Cream is free from trans fats, thickeners, and preservatives. This, coupled with its great taste, makes it a delicious and healthy substitute for high-fat dressings, such as mayonnaise.
Sweetened Whipped Topping
At just 15 calories and 1 gram of carbohydrates per 2-tablespoon serving, Rockview® Sweetened Whipped Topping lets you add guilt-free extravagance to any dessert. And it’s made with real cream!
While eating too much of any saturated fat can increase cholesterol levels, studies have shown that the healthy fats in dairy products like butter and cream are really good for you! In a study published in the journal Food and Nutrition Sciences, the researchers concluded, “The macro and micro nutrients found in meat, fish, eggs and dairy products, are vital for human health and consumption of these nutritious foods should be encouraged.”23 The key is moderation.
No. And, as a matter of fact, none of our products ever have or ever will! Our cows have been rBST-free for over 50 years.
Cottage cheese is very high in long-lasting casein protein, which makes it a great food for those wanting to build lean muscle. Casein protein doesn’t break down as quickly in the stomach, so it releases amino acids into the bloodstream at a slow, steady pace.24 This feature also makes it an excellent bedtime snack!
Too good to be true, right? Nope! One serving of eggnog gives you lots of protein, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, riboflavin, B-12, pantothenic acid, choline, and vitamins A and D—and it’s naturally gluten-free! But drinking this delicious classic is really all about enjoyment. Add a little of your favorite rum, bourbon, or whiskey, and toast the holiday season with friends and family.
You’ll find our delicious eggnog on your grocer’s shelf between October and January each year. And if you don’t, download our Product Request Form and let the store manager know.
Like all traditional eggnog, ours does contain raw eggs. However, because Rockview® Eggnog is pasteurized, it’s perfectly safe and delicious!
The greatest benefit of lactose-free dairy is that it allows more people to enjoy a delicious part of life! With lactose removed, people with lactose intolerance can consume dairy products without discomfort.
Just Like Regular Milk
Lactose-free dairy products are super nutritious, with lots of calcium, vitamin D, and protein, just like regular dairy.
The complex sugar in milk is called lactose. To make our delicious milk safe for those with lactose intolerance, this complex sugar is broken into two simple sugars, galactose and glucose, which are much easier for these folks to digest.
Rockview® Lactose-Free Milk is pasteurized using ultra-high temperature (UHT), or extended shelf life (ESL), technology. That just means it was heated to a higher temperature for a shorter time than conventionally pasteurized milk. All of our UHT/ESL products are just as wholesome and taste just as great. They just last longer!
Gluten is a protein found in some grains, especially wheat. For those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, this protein can be very damaging to the digestive and other body systems. Fortunately, many dairy products are naturally gluten-free!
Did you know? There’s no measurable difference in the quality of the vitamins and minerals present in our regularly pasteurized dairy and our products pasteurized using ultra-high temperature (UHT), or extended shelf life (ESL), technology.25 Our UHT/ESL products just last longer!
Calcium keeps you growing and going strong by supporting bones and teeth, muscles, and all kinds of body processes.7
Another name for vitamin B2, riboflavin is an essential component to a healthy diet. Our bodies can’t make or store it, so consuming foods high in this nutrient is important.11
ESL dairy packs a real protein punch! These building blocks of life are essential for normal body function on every level, from thinking to growing, and everything in between.9
Just a fancy name for vitamin B12, this nutrient supports metabolism, normal energy levels, and the immune system. It also helps build healthy red blood cells.12
This nutrient is important for all of us, but especially for athletes and growing children. They benefit most from the muscle and nervous system support potassium provides.13
All Rockview products are guaranteed fresh up to the expiration date printed on the packaging. For our regularly pasteurized products, this date is typically 19 days after production. Our extended shelf life (ESL) products and products processed using UHT (ultra-high temperature) technology last much longer—from 75 to 90 days following production. However, once these products are opened, they last about the same amount of time as regularly pasteurized products.
No. UHT and ESL milk are packed full of the nutrients a body needs to grow and thrive, including calcium, Vitamins A, D, and B12, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, riboflavin, niacin, and zinc.9 10 Whereas some vitamins are heat sensitive, minerals are completely immune to heat. And any sensitive vitamins are added back into our milk following pasteurization. Our UHT/ESL pasteurization process is also carefully monitored to avoid damage to proteins.
Absolutely! ESL/UHT pasteurization is mostly a matter of turning up the heat for a few seconds. These higher temperatures combined with Rockview Family Farms’ ultra-clean environment is our recipe for wholesome, delicious products that stay that way a whole lot longer.
