Frequently Asked Questions
This is not a Pickl-It-specific question, but one that we’ve heard repeated a few time over the years, so we decided to include it in our FAQ, just-in-case. The “fishy” milk may be due to a “nonsense mutation” in the FM03 gene, a common problem in some cows. The entire article with the science-answers is located here High-quality, fresh fish shouldn’t even taste “fishy”, so if you encounter “fishy milk”, find another farmer or supplier.
Personally? We prefer the taste and texture of goat milk kefir to that of cow kefir. The only downside to goat milk is its low folate level, compared with cow milk. And goat milk is also lower in Vitamin D, iron and Vit B12. We drink cow milk “fresh”, making it into cultured butter, and kefir our goat milk. And if you like cow collectibles? Try this site. We’re not affiliated or associated, but think they’ve got some really great “stuff”!

Just wanted to let you know that I loved my customer service. Even though I was frustrated that at first I couldn’t seem to get ahold of anyone. I want to apologize for that but when you have been sick for so long, you become impatient.
Kathleen helped me and she was the most wonderful person. She went above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you so much. I look forward to getting my order today and getting started.
