Our farmers’ herds of happy, healthy cows are all within 25 miles of Trewithen Dairy in the Glynn Valley and thrive in our mild Cornish climate. The cows have a supremely healthy and balanced diet.
The principal forage is grass, which grows so abundantly in the mild Cornish climate. Most cows will eat grass most of the time, but as the season progresses, grass growth diminishes and our farmers’ cows are increasingly fed winter forages.
These naturally include a good amount of grass silage and cereals, maize, beans and other proteins may also be mixed in. The exact mix is assessed and controlled by each individual farmer, with their care and expertise combining with their knowledge of their unique herd and local conditions.
