Did you know that only 1% of consumed milk in the Philippines come from local farmers?
Yes, you read that right. Shocking, no? If you check the shelves at your local grocery store you’ll see a lot of popular PH brands of fresh milk but when you take a closer look at where the milk came from, it usually came from New Zealand.
Nothing wrong with that but why not support our local farmers?
Did you know that we have local farmers in Batangas who is into processing organic, grass-fed and hormone-free cow’s milk? That’s The Emerald Fresh! ❤
Our friends from The Emerald Fresh sent us a bunch of their products so we can try it’s creamy goodness. Here’s our family’s honest and unbiased review. Read on! 😉
Whole Milk and Chocolate Milk
All raves to The Emerald Fresh’s Whole Milk. It’s creaminess is just right. Compared to other fresh milks, it didn’t have any after taste at all. Whenever I taste milk I always have this weird feeling in my mouth but with The Emerald Fresh’s Whole Milk, I never experienced this. My kids love drinking this in the morning straight from the fridge. A perfect pair to their cereals.
Just like these 2, The Emerald Fresh’s Whole milk and Chocolate milk is perfect together too!
“Tastes like ice cream!” was Renz’s immediate reaction upon tasting the Chocolate Milk. To be honest, I haven’t tasted any chocolate milk like this one. It has the right amount of chocolate and milk blend. Upon checking it’s ingredients, it’s all natural too!

The Breakfast Smoothies
I finally found a healthier alternative to the popular yogurt drink the kids are fond of!
We tried first the Strawberry Breakfast Smoothie and we tasted it’s creaminess, thick consistency and real strawberry bits. Renz’s kept asking if he can bring a bottle to school for a snack since he can’t get enough of it. I find the serving of the bottle too much for a toddler so whenever we open one, Renz and Luke often share.
Same with the Strawberry Breakfast Smoothie, we tasted real fruit bits from the Blueberry and Raspberry variant. We have different favorites so if we’re going to place an order, it will be all the variants. Mine is Raspberry, Luke & Daddy Andrei loves Blueberry and Renz likes the Strawberry and Mango variant.

Where To Find The Emerald Fresh
I would like to commend the delivery man who brought us their product. He immediately gave me instructions on how to handle the milk. The Emerald Fresh is not available yet on any of our local grocery stores or supermarkets but I’m hoping to see them on the shelves soon for an easier access for purchase. You can send them a message on Facebook or Instagram to place your order with a minimal shipping fee within Metro Manila. They also deliver in Cavite, Laguna, and Antipolo.
