Thank you wonderful villagers for your fabulous support throughout the last year! It has been great to meet so many local people! To those of you new to the area, we are a milk hut supplying pasteurised milk in glass bottles. The milk doesn’t even leave the farm, pasteurising whole milk slowly each morning to sell from our milk dispenser throughout the day.
The micro-dairy is run by my husband and myself on our family farm in Blackford and we’re very excited to be able to provide milk from our farm to local people. As people are becoming more aware of where their food is coming from and how it is packaged, we thought it was the ideal time to launch the micro-dairy back in 2019. Our milk is unhomogenised as we do not process it in the same way as many big dairies would, which is has many added health benefits, alongside the benefits of drinking whole milk.
The bottles of milk are priced at £2 per bottle and the milk £1 per litre, the milk hut is open from 8 am to 8 pm for people to help themselves through a vending machine style refrigerated machine. We have expanded slightly and can now offer Milkshakes, eggs, bread, tea and coffee, homemade cakes and fresh seasonal items such as Cheddar Strawberries. We still operate as a self-serve facility and have provided bike parking and outdoor seating, for those having walked or cycled to rest their legs a while!
