A big hello from our farm in Whimple, East Devon
We have set up Daisy Chain Dairy to provide you with quality Devon produce from our own farm and from other locally sourced outlets. Then, deliver it straight to your door.
We are part of a strong, sustainable local economy. By ordering your fresh dairy produce from us, you are helping to support your local community.
Buy locally and get value for money. Reduce food miles by cutting the distance from the field to your table.
On our family-run farm at Cobden in Whimple we were, up until recently, dairy farmers with our lovely herd of milking cows. Unfortunately, like many of our farming friends, we could not sustain the milking cows and we were forced to sell them.
However, do not despair! We have sourced local, excellent quality milk to replace our own and keep you supplied with only the best produce, also supporting our local dairy farmers.
We now stock milk for all tastes; non-homogenised, homogenised, organic, soya and goat’s milk. It can be supplied to you in 2lt, 1lt or 1pint recyclable plastic bottles or NEW 1pint reusable glass bottles (only available with non-homogenised, whole, semi-skimmed and skimmed cows milk).
One of the most frequently asked questions we get is the difference between homogenised and non-homogenised milk. A cow gives whole milk that has two components, non-fat milk and cream. Left to settle, the cream will naturally rise to the top. Homogenization, a process introduced in 1932, breaks apart fat molecules under high pressure, leaving the fat suspended and evenly dispersed throughout the milk and stopping the cream from settling at the top of the bottle.
We look forward to delivering to you and hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy producing them.
