Watch the process involved in milking organic dairy cows.
I’m not from a farming background, so it’s important for me to educate people on the process behind what’s in their glass.
My husband Tom and I milk 370 cows which calve in the spring and autumn, using a mixture of Friesians, Jerseys and Shorthorns – our cows are bred for longevity, milk solids (fat and protein for cheese production) and their ability to convert grass into milk without needing lots of concentrated feed.

Sophie and her husband Tom are first-generation organic dairy farmers with three young children. They farm about 900 acres on the Dorset / Devon / Somerset border in partnership with a business partner.
