Our cows

Our milking herd compromises of 100 cows, comprising of UK bred Dairy Shorthorns with a few other breeds such as Brown Swiss (Diana) and Friesians. We are passionate about our cows and their health and happiness. The cows can be seen happily grazing in the fields around Stonehouse and Standish.

The Shorthorn breed of cattle, known for its excellent milk quality, temperament and longevity, which we know today, has evolved over the last two centuries, from Teeswater and Durham cattle found originally in the North East of England.

Stonehouse Milk Free Range Dairy Pasture Promise logo
Milk bearing the Pasture Promise label is backed up by NSF certification, a food standards label that will guarantee the cows have indeed been grazing outdoors for 180 days, that they are in yard for an hour before and after milking, that they graze within 400 metres of water and that no male calves have been euthanised, an industry practice that fuels the fire of anti-dairy campaigners.
