I come from a long, proud line of dairy farmers; for over 100 years, my family has worked hard to sustainably produce the best milk you can buy. We do this because we’re driven to keep farming. For us it’s more than a business, it’s what we live and breathe.
This is why I’m here today. I know that passion alone is not enough to keep my family on the land. Nor are generations of knowledge, a commitment to sustainable farming, or our small herd of beautiful cows. But together, these achievements, big and small, amount to something precious. And that’s what we call Simple Cow.
I started Simple Cow to deliver the best-tasting, single source milk you’ll drink to as many people as possible. It’s our belief that this shouldn’t be reserved for the lucky few; it should be readily available to many, supporting the economy in which it was made.
Our farm on the Mendip Hills allows us to achieve this. We see the product from start to finish, milking through pasteurising and into the vending machines. This smallness, the intimacy of our process, is what guarantees the integrity, quality and health benefits of our delicious single source milk.
But what really makes us special is our herd of only 50 cows. Each has a name, which we know by heart. They make us who we are, and it’s their happiness and health that allow us to deliver over 300,000 litres of milk every year.
Simple cow delivers high quality milk from one dairy, traceable down to the very cow that made it. It’s the smallness of our process combined with our ability to supply these substantial quantities that allow us to share our milk with many.
I’m so excited to bring our milk to you. It’s everything we believe in, captured in a bottle.
Who We Are
The irony of progress
It’s a funny old world isn’t it? Sometimes progress isn’t progress at all. Instead of making things better, it makes them an imitation of what they once were. At Simple Cow we believe in going back, way back, to how things were done before compromise crept in.
We don’t ask how to make something cheaper, or how to produce as much of it as possible, we only ask ourselves this:
How can we make it as it should be?
That one simple question is the driving force behind every single thing we do, it's why we farm the way we do, its why we don't homogenise our milk, its why we serve it glass bottles. Real progress for us, is what it should be for everyone; making things better.
