Frequently Asked Questions

We are happy to answer any questions about our farming practices, cattle management and milk production. 

If you can’t find the answer below please get in touch 

Do your cattle graze?

Yes! In the spring/summer the cows have access permanent pasture, allowing them to choose indoors or outdoors.  They also have access to the 24/7 automated milking system.

What is the shelf life?

Bottled fresh 6 mornings a week in our on-farm dairy, Mawley Milk is delivered with a minimum of 8 days Use By date.

What happens to the bull calves

All bull calves are reared to maturity for beef, even the Holsteins.

What is non-homogenised?

Mawley Milk is not homogenised - the cream naturally rises to the top.  Homogenisation emulsifies cream into the milk - in our opinion this spoils the taste and quality.  Most supermarket milk is standardised and homogenised.  

Does milk contain hormones or antibiotics?

British milk does not contain any  hormones or antibiotics.  At Mawley, antibiotics are only used when absolutely necessary, under veterinary advise.
