Here’s a quick summary of the milk situation in Edinburgh at the moment. We’ve been getting McQueens pints for a few years but as they’ve put their prices up significantly twice in the last year we’re looking elsewhere. 72p a pint is about normal all over the UK.
I’m going to try Wiseman milk as it the way milk should be, with cream at the top and with an organic version and it means I don’t have to put prices up. Hopefully adding a few hundred pints to a Lorry already coming to Edinburgh won’t tip the environmental balance of nature.
Mossgiel Farm should have pints available in glass very soon. That’d be the milk we’d choose.
Wee Isle dairy’s milk is great but the logistics from Gigha and the 1Lt bottles make it well over £1/pint.
Here’s a table to show the milk suppliers different milks
