Milk kefir is just as delicious (if not more so) than yogurt, with a consistency similar to buttermilk. It contains upwards of 40-60 strains of beneficial bacteria and yeast, beating out yogurt by producing trillions of microflora in each cup. The fact that you can flavor it however you want (blend in some fresh berries, bananas, chocolate, whatever!) makes it even that much better. You can also try to train the grains to kefir milk alternatives such as almond, rice, coconut or soy.

We enjoy drinking this ourselves and are always happy to share it (and our recipes) with others. All you need is milk to keep your grains alive and happy and make delicious kefir! We've found it to be a very rewarding experience and economical to boot. :)

All of our grains are fed and nourished daily with organic whole milk. Our kefir grains have been built over time from multiple sources worldwide to ensure that our grains have strains that are strong, balanced, diverse, vibrant, and flexible. Our little guys live in a clean home where organic, non-toxic cleaners are used and there are no toxic by-products in the air. Culture-friendly materials are used at all times when handling the grains. We want to support and respect the health of our cultures, ourselves and the world at large!

What’s the Difference Between Dehydrated and Live Grains?

Live Milk kefir grains are fully active grains which will produce kefir right away. They are taken straight from their current fresh batch of milk and sent to your home. They take less time to balance upon arrival than dehydrated grains and are more likely to grow sooner.

Dehydrated Milk Kefir Grains are grains that have become dormant after being dried. Dried grains can take several batches before becoming fully active and able to grow (it is considered drinkable after a couple or so batches, though).

We do offer DRIED milk kefir grains as well in our shop. Dried grains are less expensive and can travel further distances with less risk. Great for international destinations. You can also store these grains if you aren't ready to use them right away.

Traveling To Its New Home (Shipping)

We pack our fresh kefir grains carefully to ensure a successful journey to your home, wherever you may be. These are bagged securely and shipped immediately after packing. We typically ship at the beginning of the week to help avoid the grains sitting over the weekend before delivery.

We recommend upgrading to priority shipping if its really hot, cold or if you live far way.

We do not ship LIVE grains internationally presently. If you are outside the US, we recommend purchasing the dried version.

Upon arrival they may give off a strong yeasty smell when you open the bag, this is just from the natural gas produced by the grains and is to be expected.

You will also receive a detailed, step-by-step instructions e-guide on how to get started and care for your kefir. Look inside your package for a unique informative card with a link to our e-guide, which will also be emailed to you.

You are also welcome to email us with any questions you may have now or in the future!

A Little Bit About Milk Kefir in General

What is Milk Kefir?

Kefir is a wonderfully delicious fermented milk similar to yogurt that originated roughly 2000 years ago in the Caucasian Mountains. It has a tart effervescent yogurt flavor with a consistency similar to thick buttermilk. The word Kefir is derived from the Turkish word “Keif” describing a state of 'feeling good' and with good reason.

Kefir is a probiotic powerhouse. In just one cup of kefir there are trillions of health-promoting micro-flora produced from upwards of 40-60 strains of beneficial bacteria and yeast. Much more than yogurt or acidophilus pills contain!

Kefir is also loaded with valuable enzymes, easily digestible complete proteins, vitamins and minerals. It is even suitable for the lactose intolerant. It has long been known to promote and aid in digestion and overall health. Genuine kefir is different than the overpriced kefir you can buy in the stores, which is usually a simulated drink to mimic the flavor and is not produced by the traditional method, thus lacking the quality and health benefits of true traditional kefir.

Is Kefir Easy to Make?

Yes, kefir is very simple and fun to make! Kefir can be made from any type of milk (whole, low fat, non-fat, organic, raw) cow or goat. The grains simply need to be placed in a jar of milk at room temperature and they will do the rest! In 24 hours you will have a delicious healthy drink! Simply strain, put in fresh milk and repeat! Kefir grains often outlive their owners!
