We are one of the few remaining traditionally family run, free range dairy farms in Dorset. Located in Osmington on the spectacular Jurassic Coast.
From 1983, the partners of the farm began to diversify into bottling the fresh creamy milk from the 80 traditional British Friesian and Ayrshire cows. The bottled milk was delivered to the doorsteps of Osmington. From there the business began to expand little by little each year, keeping up with the demand of new customers from surrounding local areas and with the current milk market.
From farming 100 acres to now 300 acres, this growth is to ensure we can be totally self-sufficient to feed our 130 homebred dairy cows (plus all youngstock, including bull calves) throughout the year. Homegrown grass silage and maize silage is grown for winter feeding, to keep the high quality of milk the cows produce in the colder months. We home breed the tradional British Friesian and Ayrshire cows, perfect breeds of cows for our system. Small in height for our traditional abreast parlour, quiet in temperament and produce high butter fats for our creamy dairy products. The environment of the farm is so important, being good stewards to an abundance of wildlife and fauna. We have a large variety and population of birds due to our coastal location.
In the processing unit, we have expanded in many ways. From delivering bottled milk to the village of Osmington, to now, the surrounding areas and as well as selling our products wholesale (for more information click the doorstep and wholesale page). We have a fantastic team producing the best quality creamy dairy products. We process milk, clotted cream, single, whipping and double cream, as well as a variety of flavours of delicious ice-creams (for more information click our products page).
We also have a farm shop and tea room on-site, selling a variety of fresh produce fom local businesses. The tea room offers breakfast, light lunches, cream teas with scrumptious cakes and ice-creams. Children and dog friendly with indoor and outdoor seating, perfect in the summer for watching our cows graze.
