What is 6% whole milk?

I came across a picture of a line of milk produced by a local farm:

From Yelp

I have never heard of 6% whole milk before. My understanding is that whole milk is usually 3-4% fat. Has anyone tasted milk like these? Is additional fat added?

I was kind of curious myself so I did a quick google search on 6% milk, here was the results. (I notice the band is “Family Farm”…enough said)

Your google search has led to you a false result.

Looks like the elusive “light cream”

Different breeds of cow give different amounts of milkfat. 6%, wow!

Has anyone tried reindeer milk? That is some fatty stuff. I’d like to try it one day.
