Dairy Herd

Liberty Farm is committed to farming in a sustainable way; managing the land organically to safeguard traditional habitats, upholding high standards of animal welfare, and allowing the cows in our herd to graze pastureland during the Spring, Summer and Autumn. The cows are only housed indoors in the winter when there is insufficient grass growth to sustain them and ground conditions are too wet.

Liberty Farm cows are kept in a small herds (less than 60), which has been shown to promote their social well-being. They are milked once a day, reducing stress and allowing maximum time to graze and relax in the lush Dorset pastureland.
