    Highest welfare, compassionate, kind and gentle micro-dairy producing and selling whole raw Jersey milk. Our small herd of cows are Pasture Fed for Life and are allowed to keep their calves, they run together as one natural herd of all ages from new borns to great great grandmas. Each cow is milked individually unrestrained just once a day and is given time and attention to her own specific needs, each cow knows her own name and comes running to the call. The male calves are weaned at a natural age depending on his own and his mothers needs (each animal is treated on its own merit there are no set rules or standardisation at CAFD). After the grass has finished at the end of each year we sell our own ‘Pasture Fed for Life’ beef. Cow shares for beef £50 a share. Granny cows retire here on the farm after their re-production days are over. We do not sell animals on live. It is our responsibility to ensure our animals have as gentle death as is humanely possible. Nationwide courier service £2.50 per litre bottle of milk.
