We produce free range milk from our small herd of happy, free range, grass fed cows…
Our emphasis is on producing an ethical and sustainable product through high welfare and nutritional standards with local sourcing of labour, products and non gm supplementary feeds. We want our customers to be informed transparently via open days and proofing. Our milk is local direct from the farmer. No middlemen and no unneeded processing.
The Newben herd of cows was established over 50 years ago by Tony Bennion. All the ‘girls’ have names and are milked every day by a family member, with Tony still caring for the herd and milking several times a week.
Our happy cows are FREE RANGE and they have free access to a comfy indoor shelter 365 days a year, if they wish.
Unlike many herds, they have free access to pasture for up to 9 months of the year. In the winter they are fed conserved grass. They sometimes have a small amount of non gm supplementary feed that comes from Carrs Billington based at Stone, near Oswestry.
Ours cows eat grass today and by tomorrow that grass has been turned into milk by our girls, bottled and delivered. It doesn’t come any fresher than that! This gives our milk a much greater shelf life than our competitors. I say competitors yet you cannot buy comparable local milk.
All our cows are born on our farm and reared on old hay meadows. Over the past 50 years special emphasis has been given to breeding and rearing cows that produce high quality milk in a sustainable way. We want our girls to be happy, stay healthy and be part of our family for years to come.
We are passionate about our milk and we know you will be once you’ve tried it. In fact we are so convinced you will love it and become hooked that we offer all new customers their first week free!
During the summer we will be holding an open day where you can come and meet our girls.
You can buy our milk via our milkmen, at our small farm shop which will open in February, or by post. We know people are loyal to their milk rounds men and we want to hear from you if you would like your existing round men to supply our real milk. Please fill in the order enquiry form or call 01743 627788 and we will get back to you with further information.
