Ivy house Organic Milk
In 1982 Geoff and Kim Bowles moved to the small village of Beckington, and began farming a small herd of Friesian cows. As the price of milk continued to drop they realised something had to change or they could no longer survive as farmers so they decided to diversify. Geoff's Uncle John gave them 20 Jersey Cows and a cream separator. 30 years later Ivy House Farm is home to 120 cows, supplying customers all over the south of England.
Every cow has been born and raised on the farm and each live a long and happy life, each living to around 10 years of age (in contrast to intensive farming where cows will only live 4 to 5 years). Ivy House adhere to the strict organic guidelines which means no nasty hormones or antibiotics are given to the cows, instead they look for natural remedies to help the cows through any medical issues, ensuring the milk you drink is as natural and pure as possible. All the winter feed comes from the farm, meaning complete control over the cows diet, nutritional uptake and quality of their food.
The dairy products they supply us with are nothing less than exceptional, all being produced by organic grass fed cows reared using traditional farming methods that focus solely on pasture-raised animals and regenerative land practices.
Put simply, this is as good as milk, cream and butter gets!
