Experiences of small dairy production & processing

Abbey Home Farm has a small dairy enterprise that is part of a large and very diverse farm with beef, sheep, pigs, poultry, cereals, vegetables as well as a farm shop and various educational activities. The dairy currently produces liquid milk, yoghurt, butter and various cheeses. The herd of dairy shorthorns was increased from 18 to 30 cows in June this year with the aim of spreading some of the production costs. John will talk about his experience with running a small dairy with processing and his reasons for increasing cow numbers to help with the logistics of the small- scale processing.
