Do you support your local dairy farmer?

August 27th, 2015

Did you know every day a dairy farmer is forced out of business?

Our milk comes from only 8 miles away, from Newlands Farm Dairy.

Unlike other dairies, this milk is produced, processed, bottled and distributed all by the farm itself.

Newlands Dairy Farm

Newlands Dairy Farm

                             This small scale local dairy has a milking herd of only 150 cows, which graze on grass on open fields in the summer, and stay in warm straw filled barns in the winter.

Unlike other dairy farms, this dairy farm not only milks the cows on site, but also processes, bottles and distributes the milk all by itself!

We are very proud to stock this truly local milk. Locally produced milk gives traceability, low food miles, and all the benefits that come with dealing direct with the farmer himself.

When you buy milk from Smiths Farm Shop you can rest assured that you are supporting your local dairy farmer.
