Drink your milk & be mighty…
Posted on 27 June 2017
I like the sentiment behind that phrase – I say it to the boys sometimes when they are faffing about at breakfast time!
It’s something that was written on one of the information boards we had at our recent Open Farm Sunday event. Our milk processor is the principle sponsor of the national campaign established by ‘LEAF’ (Linking Environment and Farming) to raise awareness of farming practices among the general public.
Ours was a small affair, focusing on the heart of dairy farming. The highlight being an opportunity for our visitors to join Sean and his colleague Stuart in the milking parlour. A real life workshop on how closely we work with our ladies to ensure they are happy, healthy and producing top quality milk. It was great to see.
It was hard to anticipate before the event how it would work but it was a success and great to hear all the excited, inquisitive voices (adults and children alike) chatting about what they could see, hear and smell!
We will always do everything we can to support British Dairy Farming. It’s in our blood. We hope to welcome many more visitors here next year – drink your milk and be mighty!
