Fresh, raw and ethical milk
Happy and healthy cows produce healthy milk. We take good care of our cows, which means the milk they give us is delicious, nutritious and safe to drink unpasteurised. Because the only processing we do is to strain and chill our cows’ milk, it retains all its natural goodies - including vitamins, proteins, essential fatty acids, digestive enzymes and minerals. And we think it tastes a whole lot better this way too.
We believe that a dairy calf should stay with its mum instead of being separated at birth. Our calves (both boys and girls) stay with their mum for the first couple of months followed by month where they see there mum every day for a drink and chat to ease thier transition to independence. Our cows are definitely happer because of it and the calves do very well too. At weaning the girls stay to eventually join our herd and the boys go to our neighbour Stroud Community Agriculture to live the life of a beef animal.
We believe that we farm better when we work with nature. We take a regenerative approach to farming, which means we promote plant and soil health through biodiversity and the balance of natural systems. We’re inspired by permaculture, biodynamics and organic farming, and bring all these ideas together to create a farm that has a positive regenerative effect on our land and local environment. - doing more good rather than less bad.
We’re excited to join Stroud’s existing community-supported agriculture (CSA) family. As you might already know, CSA is about creating a partnership between farmers and customers, and building transparency, sustainability and resilience into our food system. Simply put, we talk, know and support each other, and we use a community membership model to run our little farm.
