Fr om Pasture Meet the Producer: TREWITHEN DAIRY

a pint alongside their loaf of bread and half a dozen eggs on a weekly, if not daily basis and with British dairy farmers producing approximately 11 billion litres of milk each year, it clearly continues to be a thriving industry. Cornish-based Trewithen Dairy is keen to


reinstate the value of milk with consumers, highlighting the time, care and attention spent on producing good quality dairy products. We visited their dairy in the beautiful Glynn Valley and spoke to owner, Bill Clarke, to learn about the importance of caring for the welfare of both cows and farmers, as well as encouraging an industry of quality-conscious people.


‘25 HERDS IN 25 MILES’ "T is is a philosophy that has been the foundation of our business from the start. We celebrate the fact that we are lucky to have an abundance of farms to support and work with in such close proximity - this is a direct indication that the Cornish dairy industry is thriving. It all started with a good friend down the


road who had milk he needed to supply to a dairy. Off ering to take on his milk was the start of many more local farms showing


n recent years, the dairy industry has had a tough time with struggling milk prices and challenging conditions for dairies across our region. Yet we still associate milk as


interest and before long we had a long list of quality farmers all within a 25 mile radius. It's a sensible concept on every level, from an environmental, fi nancial and practical perspective. It's exciting to not just work with


longstanding farms of many generations but make alliances with new dairy farms being set up in the local area. Only this year we have started working with two new farms run by young and innovative families, supplying the dairy industry great milk."


TRACEABILITY "Ultimately, if you have a supply chain full of people with the same ambition and integrity, it will result in a product with equal integrity and by having open lines of communication


throughout the process, everything is traceable. With so much confl icting information and


news regarding provenance of our food, the dairy industry appreciates consumers need to be reassured. Having an extensive team of highly skilled and qualifi ed members who work daily with our farmers, means the end product is everything you expect it to be. T is results in a product that we are extremely proud of and our farmers are more than happy to promote."


ANIMAL WELFARE "First and most importantly, any good dairy will only work with good farmers. Individuals who care about the welfare of their cows and the environment, as well as the milk
