Farm Visit

Come and walk the farm with Sam and Katie and find out how they farm naturally and sustainably to produce fantastic milk.

A bottle of Jersey Milk and a Taw River Ice Cream is part of the experience.

They say “Taw River Dairy has always been about the cows and the environment. We believe farming should work with the environment and not against it. We farm organically and keep animal medicine usage to an absolute minimum, no antibiotics are used on the farm. Holistic grazing techniques help to build soil structure and organic matter, we even have our own bees help to pollinate our meadows. Low food miles and reduced carbon emissions are just a couple of the benefits of not buying in feed for the farm, most concentrated feeds are made up of cereals imported from all over the world!”

Thanks to the kind support of Harvest Workers Co-op can offer free transport from Okehampton centre to Taw River Dairy. This must be arranged with us before hand through the Harvest farm Shop or by emailing
