Healthy Cows

Healthy Cows = Healthy Milk 

We take great care in keeping our cows healthy as healthy cows who eat a healthy diet give the healthiest milk. Our cows have been tested free of TB and continue to be tested once a year. All milking cows undergo a thorough animal health check twice a year by a veterinarian to ensure their health and welfare.

The cow’s milk is checked daily for infections such as mastitis. We are not certified organic but farm according to organic and biological principles. This means that we try to keep everything as natural as possible. We use chicken manure, compost, vermicast and lime as our fertilisers and the use of chemical fertilisers are kept to a minimum. Drugs and vaccinations used for the cows are only those which are absolutely necessary and the use of weedspray used on the farm is kept to the bare minimum.
