We have a herd of 180 goats of three main breeds, Anglo Nubian, Saanen and Toggenburg.
The goats are milked in our specialised goat milking parlour twice a day and produce a lovely clean tasting milk which we sell as either fresh milk or turn it into yoghurts and ice cream. The goats are amazingly interactive and mischevious and form a major part of the milking experience and the farmer for a day opportunities
We milk a herd of 75 pure bred Jersey cows, calving all year round to supply Sharpham Wine and Cheese with super rich milk for their award winning cheeses.
The surplus milk will be used to make jersey ice cream and yoghurts at Dartington Dairy. The cows are reared non intensively on lush clover grass, produced to organic standards utilising as much home grown feed as possible. All the calves are reared by us and will live their entire lives on the farm.
