We have a herd of 120 pedigree Fleckvieh cows which produce the rich creamy milk we sell. The cows are out grazing grass for as much of the year as the weather will allow, typically 9 months of the year. We milk the cows twice a day and then gently pasteurise the milk to keep as much of its natural feel and flavour as possible whilst killing off any harmful bacteria. The milk will also be un-homogenised, meaning if left undisturbed the cream will settle on top!
We also keep all our heifer (female) calves and rear them to join the herd when they are old enough. Our bull (male) calves are sold to our neighbours, Springfield Farm, and reared for their beef boxes.
All our cows and youngstock are kept to very high welfare standards. We are both Red Tractor and Arla Garden farm assured which means we meet a whole range of standards that ensure we are looking after our animals and producing milk to the highest standards. More than this, we have even higher standards for ourselves, we love our cows like pets and so we bend over backwards to ensure they have the best life possible!
