About milk

Our cows produce top quality milk every single day, and we work hard to produce a level supply of milk to suit the liquid market.

All our cows are fed on a UK-sourced natural diet, which comprises of mainly home-grown food that is carefully balanced for cow health and performance. We work closely with our milk buyer to ensure that the highest standards of animal welfare and food safety are met, aiming to create the perfect day, every day.
