Emma's Organic Raw Milk BannerHere at Emma’s Dairy we believe that cows should have the freedom to roam, grazing our pastures and producing raw organic milk that is naturally high in omega 3. Our cows produce a natural amount of milk and are not intensified in any way to produce more, thats why our milk is rich in butterfat and protein.

8 Reasons to Drink Organic Raw Milk

Some people are drinking Organic Raw Milk because it is nutrient-rich and full of probiotics, some because of its superior taste, some are concerned about things like antibiotics, GMOs, pesticides and hormones in their food, whereas for others it is about a rejection of mass food production.

We decided to do some research and find out what is motivating a growing army of people to drink Organic unpasturised, unhomogenised milk.
Here is what we found out:

1. The Taste is Spectacular - Smooth, silky, unctuous. Sweet almost, but not in the least rich.

2. Promotes Gut Health - Raw Milk is full of probiotics, healthy enzymes and "good" bacteria vital to gut health. If you ever need to take antibiotics which kill the good gut bacteria, drinking Organic Raw Milk helps reactivate the gut. Furthermore, Raw Milk contains various enzymes that can help improve the digestion of nutrients from other foods. 

3. Helps with Allergies Such as Asthma and Eczema - Studies are now proving that children who drink raw milk are 50 percent less likely to develop allergies and 41 percent less likely to develop asthma compared to other children.

4. Helps the Immune System - Nutrients like probiotics, vitamin D and immunoglobulins (antibodies) found in raw milk naturally boost the immune system and reduce the risk of allergies in both children and adults.

5. Helps Protect Against Cancer, Diabetes and Heart Diesese - Cows fed fresh green forage, have been shown to have higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) a very powerful nutrient shown to i) fight all 3 stages of cancer, ii) promote healthy blood sugar levels and thereby reduce our chances of diabetes, and iii) improve heart health as CLA consumption increases. ​​​

6. High in Omega-3 and Fat-Soluble Vitamins - which are essential, they modify how our body responds to stress and control many metabolic processes. They help with arthritis, decreasing all markers of inflammation, help with depression by increasing well-being and can be shown to help us focus.

7. More Digestible - Customers who have previously been described as “lactose intolerant” have provided reviews such as “This is the only milk I can drink without any issues!” (Jonathan, London). Studies have shown raw milk to be significantly more digestible. A recent study reported that milk from black-and-white dairy cattle contains a type of protein known as A1, whereas milk from traditional breeds tend to produce A2 milk, as do goats, buffalos – and humans.

8. Free from Antibiotics, GMOs, Pesticides and Hormones – More commercially raised animals are fed a high-protein soy- and corn-based diet and may be given bovine growth hormones to increase milk production. This diet is contrary to their biology and can cause illnesses that may require cows to be given antibiotics. GMOs, pesticides and hormones are banned under an organic system and whilst antibiotics are allowed, Gazegill’s milk line is the only one we know of that is 100% antibiotic free. Our rare breed herd of 70 cows are 100% organic and grass fed on their natural diet, which may give lower milk yields but results in healthy cows and healthy naturally nutritious milk.





A Note About Food Safety- Sales of raw milk are strictly regulated by the Food Standards Agency on a daily basis: raw milk today is produced in clinically clean conditions, goes "from teat to tank" without contacting the air, and is cooled to 2C within five minutes. Gazegill deliver fresh organic raw milk and cream in insulated boxes packed with ice (delivery is free and nationwide). Milk can be frozen.

What Makes Gazegill Special- Gazegill’s rare breed herd graze organic pastures rich in wild flowers, clovers and wild grasses. Plants produce powerful antioxidants to protect themselves and when cows digest these nutrients they pass to us humans when we consume their milk. Healthy grass, Healthy cows, Healthy you!


Q. Is Raw Milk Licensed?

A. We are one of only a handful of farms in the UK that is licensed to sell raw drinking milk, milk which is straight from the cow and as nature intended. The milk contains all the healthy bacteria that we need to maintain a healthy gut and the enzymes are alive making it easier for us to absorb calcium, not to mention that the real white stuff tastes great – the more processes milk has to endure, the poorer the taste. We take great care to ensure that the milking plant and our cows are squeaky clean giving us the confidence to sell our milk knowing it is the perfect pint. If you would like more information about raw organic milk please contact us, the milk is available from the farm shop and we also deliver nationwide, orders over £20 are free shipping too… try the healthy alternative.
The legalities regards Raw Drinking Milk are such that it may only be sold direct by the farm to the end user… if it is coming from anywhere else its not genuine and may not be licensed.

Q: Will raw milk make me ill?

A: Not if it is properly licensed and inspected by the Food Standards Agency. Grass fed milk is generally healthier because milk collected from cows fed organic grass (and a minimum of grain) means the cows diets are not changing the composition of the milk and hinder its ability to protect itself. Grass-fed milk has natural antibiotic properties that help protect it (and those lucky enough to drink it) from pathogenic bacteria. The key to safe raw organic milk is hygiene, in the parlour and around the cow, we take great care making sure your milk is as safe as possible and as natural as it can ever be. We are regulated by the Food Standards Agency and we are required by law to put the following health warning on each bottle:

"This milk has not been heat treated and therefore may contain organisms harmful to health"

Emma’s Dairy is situated at Lower Gazegill Farm, Rimington in the shadow of Pendle Hill. We have a traditional herd of Dairy Shorthorns which produce a raw organic milk high in butterfat and because of their grass and herb rich diet it is naturally higher in omega 3. We are proud of our history and the land here has been managed by the same family for nearly 500 years, our Hay Meadows have been sensitively managed during this time and are rich in flora and our girls thrive on the food they yield. During the spring many flowers can be seen, many of which are rare, and ground nesting birds such as Curlews and Lapwings are resident as well. Here at the Dairy you can find our farm shop selling all of our meat and dairy produce alongside our visitor and education centre where we host free educational trips for schools and groups and during the summer months family hedgerow safaris.
