Our herd comprises just 35 milking Friesian and Montbeliarde cows and they are fed on grass which they graze free range during the spring and summer and silage (fermented grass) which is harvested from our own fields in the summer and stored as winter feed.
Philip and his wife Margaret, along with their son, Rob, and daughter, Heather, carry out the day to day running of the farm.
Our herd is relaxed, happy and well cared for and on warm summer evenings they are always eager to be milked.
We take hygiene seriously at Carpenters Hill Farm and regular checks are made of each cow's health and status for delivery at each milking (normally twice a day). In addition the quality of the milk is randomly tested throughout the month and we are also subject to annual TB tests.
The satisfaction of our herd and that of our customers is very important to us and means we can truly say that our fresh unpasteurised milk is the best way to buy raw milk Straight From The Cow!
