Bruton Dairy aims to produce the best quality, locally farmed milk available on the market.
They produce organic pasteurised, unhomogenised milk using traditional techniques, focussing on quality and taste rather than convenience. All of the milk is pasteurised but they do not homogenise, which is the process that breaks down the milk fat, so the milk is more natural with a great, creamy taste.
Michael has been involved in Somerset dairy farming for over 50 years. From a young age he worked on their family dairy farm in Puriton, close to the Somerset levels. As a young man Michael started dairy farming his own farm at Sheephouse Farm on the outskirts of the beautiful Saxon town of Bruton, Somerset. Michael built a strong local reputation for the breeding of a quality dairy herd producing premium milk. Throughout the years of his farming career Michael has had a very active role in local milk producer groups and the National Farmers Union. He brings to the business a wealth of experience from his years within the farming industry.
All of the Organic milk is solely sourced from the Godminster dairy herd at Bruton, neighbouring farm to the dairy unit. “We are very proud of our association with Godminster and enjoy working alongside their team on the processing of the milk.” Godminster are world famous for their range of cheeses under the Godminster vintage label.
Richard Hollingbery, owner of Godminster has a simple mantra – “Nature repays those who treat her kindly”. A great outlook, we think you will agree.
