Why is there cream on top of my milk?

A cow produces whole milk that has two components: nonfat milk and cream. Left to settle, the cream will naturally rise to the top. The pasteurized milk we sell at retail stores is not homogenized (except for our half & half, chocolate milk and eggnog), leaving the milk as close as possible to its natural state. So, the cream naturally rises to the top.
