The Cows

We have a herd of 100 cows with 50- 60 in milk production at a time. To maintain all year supply we have 2 cows calving each week and they are in production for a maximum of 8 – 10 months.

We run a closed system so all stock including babies are on farm.

We have approx. 80% of our herd A2A2 and the balance are A1A2. We have a mixture of breeds but mostly Jersey cows for their delicious creamy milk!

We run a holistic pasture management programme which encourages lots of diversity and quality feed for the cows and builds carbon in our soil.

We do not use antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, herbicides, GMO’s, or palm kernel.

We do not supply a Dairy Company, we offer a service to our Partners for them to receive their milk.
