Just Jerseys Micro Dairy is small scale family farming of yesteryear.
Using traditional low input farming methods, grass fed in spring & summer and hay in winter. Helping lower our carbon footprint is key.
Our girls will have 'Calf at Foot' calves stay with the mum. Less stress on mum and baby.
Our Micro Dairy of 10+ Pedigree Jersey cows will provide our community and beyond with quality fresh Jersey milk every day via our vending machine conveniently located near our pastures.
The girls are milked twice a day using a mobile milking machine in the field where they graze and pasteurised using our mobile micro dairy.
The milk will be available in environmentally friendly glass bottles, you will pour your own milk into your bottle from the vending machine or even bring your own jug!
We are hugely excited to offer children a delicious Just Jerseys Milkshake from our Mooshake bar, available at the vending machine area

Our aim - To serve our community with our quality daily fresh milk.
To invite them to our micro dairy and embrace traditional/sustainable farming once again. Showing our children where and how our food reaches our plates is so important. It is now more than ever before, we need to support local business and our great British Farming Industry. By doing this we can build a thriving community and support each other as we emerge from this challenging time. Buying local you are lowering your own and our carbon footprint. You are aiding economic regeneration, providing jobs thus improving mental health & well-being. .

Since the Pandemic began in 2020 it quickly became apparent that staying local, shopping local, taking care of our local community was highly visible across the country. Donations, food parcels, prescriptions collected, we all helped someone if not many in our community.
The world stopped, took a breath and really became more aware of our communities, perhaps some not realizing what was available on our doorsteps.
We want to go the extra mile so your Milk doesn't have to.. Using our glass bottles instead of plastic, will make a noticeable difference not only the obvious - recycling but carrying heavy milk in shopping bags home, really can be a problem for some.
Both our carbon footprints with be lowered and we can be proud that we are all playing a part in saving our beautiful planet for generations to come.
