Help the Calf at Foot Raw Milk Dairy with unexpected moving costs. Suffolk dairy producing real food with compassion.

by ecolojo in Butley

Fiona Provan's Calf at Foot Dairy in Suffolk is unique and very special. Fiona's small herd of 100% pasture-fed Jersey cows produce fabulous raw milk, as well as pasture-fed veal and beef.  But that isn't all. The cows at the Calf at Foot Dairy keep their precious calves who are then gently weaned far older than usually happens in the dairy industry, keeping both mum and calf happy. Compassion is the watchword at The Calf at Foot Dairy and the taste of the raw milk and pasture-fed veal and beef from the happy herd is second to none! The Calf at Foot Dairy herd is 11 milking cows and their calves, including the beautiful Bluebell and her two month old calves Forrest and Gump.

Approved supplier with the Pasture Fed Livestock Association, The Calf at Foot Dairy has a loyal following of devoted customers in Suffolk. Our crowdfunding campaign was initially set up when the herd was given notice to leave their home in Hollesley Bay and the unexpected moving costs to their new home Home Farm, Somerleyton, also here in Suffolk, threatened to put a great strain on the finances of the dairy, so we needed help!

100% grass fed cows

The response to the initial campaign has been amazing and we have raised the £5,000 target needed for the moving costs.

As there is still some time left of our crowdfunding campaign we are now being cheeky enough to ask for help to expand the herd now it is happily installed in its new home at Home Farm, Somerleyton, North Suffolk.

  • £1,500 would pay for a much needed new milking machine: the old one is a little temperamental and a new one would make it possible to milk new cows.
  • Each £850 would buy another lovely Jersey milking cow to help meet the huge demand for the dairy's pasture fed raw milk!

Milking with compassion

 The health benefits of pasture-fed meat and also those of raw milk are becoming better known, so the more you pledge the more people will benefit from these amazing health giving foods.
