Guernsey Milk

Laceys Family Farm - Milk

We supply a full range of Guernsey milk all with the quality and taste you would expect – locally produced without the food miles!

Available in Whole, Semi-skimmed and Skimmed varieties and 500ml, 1Litre and 2Litre sizes.

To maintain the quality, taste and health benefits of Guernsey milk it is not homogenised so a little cream can rise to the top – just shake gently to disperse – not much effort for the gorgeous taste!

Most of the milk found in supermarkets today comes from a breed of cow called the called the Holstein. This large, black and white cow excels at producing copious quantities of milk, and considering farmers are paid by the litre, this makes perfect economic sense. Unfortunately, quantity comes at the price of quality, and the milk is nutrient lacking, taste deficient and often heavily processed.

Guernsey milk is renowned for its gorgeous golden colour, rich taste and exceptional nutrient content. Here at Laceys' Family Farm, all our milk comes from our herd of pedigree Guernsey cows, milked twice daily, pasteurized and bottled locally on site ready to be delivered direct to the customer. There are no food miles, no waste, just quality wholesome milk produced by your local diary.

Benefits of Guernsey Milk compared to Holstein

Guernsey milk has:
12% more protein
33% more vitamin D
25% more vitamin A
15% more calcium
300% more Omega 3

Note: Guernseys are the highest known producers of the A2 type of β-casein protein.

The Golden Guernsey colour is in fact caused by high levels of beta-Carotene, and the effect is even stronger when the cows are grazing on fresh grass in the summer.

Guernsey Cattle

Laceys Family Farm - the Cattle

The Guernsey breed, originating from the Guernsey Channel Island of its name sake, is a hardy docile breed perfectly suited to dairy farming here on the chalky soil of the Chiltern Hills. They are fawny to brown colour with white patches, angular features and large udders for the females. In 1936, Percy Lacey bought the first three Guernseys to the farm and we have bred them here ever since. Today, 2013, we have an established herd of 120 pedigree cows, served by one pedigree guernsey bull and one Angus bull.

In order to produce milk, cows must be bred. We work closely with the English Guernsey Cattle Society to identify positive traits, ready to carry the breed forward to the next generation.

Did you know the gestation period for a cow is 9 months, the same as for a human? Those cattle lucky to be born a girl will grow here and be folded in to the herd to munch grass and frolic in the sun. Boy cows are reared on the farm and cared for until they are big enough to go to market, unless they happen to be born a particularly desirable stud bull...

Many people do not realize that Guernsey is to Milk as Angus is to Steak. The milk is richly flavoured, textured and coloured with a host of nutritional benefits not found in more commonly available milk markets.
