Milk is such a thorny issue these days. With farmers being underpaid by supermarkets that can afford to sell milk for a loss to get people through their doors. Dairy farmers are giving up their herds all the time. Until now most dairy farmers are actually really good in terms of husbandry and feeding their dairy cows.
Since I’ve started delivering over fifteen years ago, I’ve been supplied by many small dairies that have gone bust or given up.
We like delivering pints in traditional glass bottles. This saves on the waste of land fill and avoids wasting fossil fuels moving and recycling plastics. We believe milk keeps better and tastes better when stored in glass. Do you know if milk in plastic containers is food safe?
We’ve started getting organic pint bottles from Mossgeil Farm who tick all the boxes, single source, farmer friendly. Here’s a link to their facebook page, some like following things….
