THE CALF-FRIENDLY, COW-KIND MICRO-DAIRY!
" You can taste the kindness"
Rebecca Hosking of Village Farm.
UK wide overnight delivery service
Founded on a firm belief that dairy cows should keep their calves until their natural weaning age. We put welfare before profit, because health, happiness and the ethical treatment of animals should always come before profit. When you drink milk from our cows at our dairy, you are not drinking milk from a depressed grieving animal who has had her baby taken away!
" Producing proper milk with compassion, our mission is
to make the world a better place for dairy cows.
If dairies had glass walls everyone (who cared) would buy milk from The Calf At Foot Dairy. We have the strictest welfare standards of all "
Our Jersey cows' delicious and luxuriously creamy, RAW milk can be delivered via mail order all over the UK or bought directly from the farm at any time (Self Service - open 24/7) but, make sure you leave time to wander in amongst the girls - they are very welcoming and don't mind showing off their calves. We take card payments at the farm-gate too.
We are proudly 'Purely Pasture Fed', meaning our cows are NOT allowed to eat junk food such as grain whether it be wheat, barley, corn, cereals, soya or any gmo.
If you have any queries please go to our Contact page.
Our customers are our certifying body - We are not certified by an organic body or any other certifying body, we are proudly 'unsigned' we don't feel these certifying bodies do our methods and extremely high standards of welfare any justice, we do not feel the need to tick any more boxes than we have to by law. There aren't boxes to suit us anyway - we sit proudly outside the box !
but just to reassure you.......
........Our beautiful Jersey cows are fed a natural diet and that means: no grain, no cereal, no soya, no GMOs' – just purely pasture fed meaning 100% grass-fed..
· No routine use of antibiotics, wormers' or chemicals on our cows or on our farm. and of course we do not use chemical fertilizers or sprays where our cows graze.
I have set up The CAFD to make the world a better place for dairy cows .......Our cows are not treated as disposables or commodities.
I do not believe the cow is here to produce milk for us humans, no I think it's for her calf but, I do believe if there was a 'holy grail' of nutritional, health giving foods then raw milk from traditional purely pasture fed cows is just about as close as your gonna get.
And don't forget properly grazed cows on farms practicing holistic management can save the planet, don't believe the burping, farting methane conspiracy of the mega corps blaming the cow, making her a scapegoat for climate change - the blame for that sits squarely on the shoulders of factory farming and The 'industry'
“It’s the how not the cow” Bring back the cow
