Over half the antibiotics used in the UK, are used in agriculture to treat animals whose products enter the food chain.
7 years ago, we decided to stop using antibiotics all together, instead allowing our herd to naturally build up their immunity and self-medicate on our herb rich pastures (see below for examples and their medicinal benefits). The cows immunity has built up over time, and passed on to the next generation and the next generation whose immune systems have naturally grown even stronger.
We strongly believe that our cows are happier and healthier and we can 100% guarantee that when you drink our organic raw milk, that you are not consuming antibiotics.
