Street Farm Dairy, Tarvin - Fresh Raw Milk (unpasteurised)

They have proudly milked a herd of pedigree Holstein cows and purebred Jerseys at Street Farm for the past 32 years. Based at the foot of Kelsall Hill, on the A54 in the heart of the beautiful Cheshire Countryside, surrounded by the villages of Tarvin, Ashton and Kelsall.

Fresh from the cow the milk is cooled and sold through a vending machine called the “Milkbot”. This keeps the milk cool and customers can dispense the amount they want into bottles provided. Fresh Raw Milk (unpasteurised) has a rich, full bodied, clean taste, full of flavour, full of natural goodness, nothing added and nothing taken out, just as nature intended, the nearest thing to a complete food.
