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

What happens to the bull calves?

All bull calves are reared to maturity for beef, even the Holsteins. Watch our short video to learn more

Do your cattle graze?

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, fresh water & ad-lid silage as a buffer-feed.

What is the shelf life?

Pasteurised and 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 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. Milk from any cow treated with antibiotics has a strict withdrawal period and is tested prior to going into our food chain to ensure there are no antibiotic residues.
