Dairy

All our Dairy products use the milk from our pedigree herd of Guernsey cows pasteurised and bottled on site for delivery direct to our customers or processing. Guernsey milk is renowned for its golden colour, rich creamy taste and exceptional nutrient content.

The milk is not homogenised so the quality, taste and health benefits are retained.

Our products are so good that we were given Gold Stars in the National Great Taste Awards for whole milk and double cream, and we are the only diary in the UK to win these prestigous awards.

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.

Guernsey milk has:

  • 12% more protein
  • 33% more vitamin D
  • 25% more vitamin A
  • 15% more calcium
  • 300% more Omega 3

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.
