EJ and SJ Court raise Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW) dairy cows at Myrtle Farm near Nailsea, Bristol.
The dairy cows at Myrtle Farm are rotationally managed, grazing one section of pasture before being moved to fresh fields. This type of management allows grass to recover before cows return to graze again; it also keeps the soil properly fertilised and minimises the build-up of internal parasites, thereby avoiding reliance on chemical treatments.
Myrtle Farm supplies Lye Cross Farm with AGW-certified milk, which is used to produce their award-winning cheeses. For more information about Lye Cross Farm, visit lyecrossfarm.co.uk. Follow Lye Cross Farm on Facebook and Twitter.
