Did you know that Goats milk is the most widely drunk milk in the world? More and more people are becoming aware of the benefits that goats’ milk can bring. Goats’ milk is a naturally nutritious alternative to cows’ milk, with similar levels of calcium, vitamins and minerals.
Delamere Dairy has won several awards including the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise. They supply an extensive range of goat's and cow's milk based products. Delamere Dairy operates a strict, independently monitored, Farm Assurance and Welfare Code which means their milk comes from healthy, happy goats. Although their milk is not classified as organic, they adopt as many standards as possible. All their farms operate low input systems in terms of fertilisers and only use antibiotics to treat sick animals when strictly necessary.
Delamere farms have made a commitment to using alternative energy sources, with some farms already using wind and solar power. Improving battery technology to take farms off grid is also on the agenda. Delamere is looking to reduce its carbon footprint by lowering CO2 emissions on farm. One such initiative is the introduction of in-feed additives to reduce methane production. Investment in home grown cereals for feed will limit the requirement for outsourced feed.
All of the farms supplying goats’ milk to Delamere are Red Tractor Assured, to give consumers peace of mind that their food is responsibly produced, traceable and safe. Delamere farmers are keen to be recognised for the high standards they achieve, they are passionate about their sector, progressive and keen to drive the industry forward.
