The farms which supply milk to us here at Trewithen Dairy have a range of breeds in their herds, including Jersey, Guernsey, Holstein, Friesian, Brown Swiss and Ayrshire. Our customers often insist they can taste the difference in Trewithen Dairy milk, but just what is it that makes it taste so good?
The Clarke family have been dairy farmers for generations. When they started processing small amounts of milk back in the early 90s, they didn’t realise it would one day lead to them making the decision to sell their herd of cows to invest further in the development of the Trewithen Dairy business.
The core values of the Trewithen Dairy business have stayed the same since it started – local milk from local herds. Trewithen Dairy customers know they are getting quality and provenance from the heart of Cornwall.
The Bumble Bee Conservation Trust is leading an exciting new project with landowners here in the Glynn Valley. These include Trewithen Dairy, The Duchy of Cornwall, The Duchy of Cornwall Nurseries, The National Trust in collaboration with the University of Exeter and it’s hoped this will be the blueprint for more projects like this
Trewithen Dairy’s rural farm location means there is nothing but beautiful Cornish countryside all around us. It makes us very aware of how careful we need to be with our resources. Water, for instance, is a very precious commodity wherever you are in the world, even here in the temperate climate of Cornwall.
At Trewithen Dairy, we have always been aware of the importance of surroundings and our role in protecting them. In 2014 we put a major investment in place to upgrade the Dairy to a state-of-the-art production facility. At this time we were also able to design and build our own 250kw solar farm.
