On The Farm

No two OMSCo farms are the same, but all of us have to meet a set of legal criteria that guarantees a standard of natural, high-welfare farming and the production of proper, no-nonsense milk.

Becoming organic is not an easy or quick process. It takes a minimum of two years’ preparation to turn a standard farm into a fully functioning organic farm, during which time the milk cannot be sold as organic.

Every organic farm has to meet standards set out by an organic certification body. These standards include: how we care for our animals; how we ensure our soils remain healthy; how we care for wildlife and the natural environment on the farm; and the fair and ethical treatment of any staff we employ. Once we have the body’s badge of approval, we’re inspected every year to ensure we’re holding up our end of the bargain and that those standards are still being met.

We farm like this because, to us, that’s how farming should be. We don’t try to push the natural boundaries to get more from our land or from our cows. We use our experience and our understanding of the land and animals to create a sustainable business that’s built to last, and to produce naturally good milk.

As a delicate ecosystem that is full of life, an organic farm aims to work in harmony with nature, rather than against it. Not only do we select and breed cows and crops that are right for the type of land we have, we also ensure we work with, and look after, the natural environment on the farm.

Sometimes organic methods, such as the use of crop rotation, may seem very traditional. But we are also exploring ways to use new technologies, such as adopting different forms of renewable energy production, including wind power and solar energy.

By doing things the organic way, we know our milk production system is free from artificial chemical fertilisers. Our cows graze land that has not been sprayed with artificial pesticides. GM cattle feed and the routine use of antibiotics are not permitted.

It’s your guarantee that our organic milk is totally natural and pure.
