Offer support for a new dairy herd in Stroud

One of Stroudco Food Hub’s longest standing producer members is looking to expand but would like reassurance from as many potential customers as possible before taking the leap.

Stroud Community Agriculture (SCA) has been farming 50 acres on the outskirts of Stroud for ten years and has recently supported the purchase of an additional 40 acres on Wick Street in the Painswick Valley.  SCA has been selling biodynamic vegetables and meat through Stroudco for eight years and is now looking into setting up a micro dairy in spring 2017, with the aim of supplying the Stroud community with organic unpasteurised, raw cow’s milk.

Before committing to the expense of setting up a new dairy herd, SCA would like to hear back from as many people as possible about their interest in raw milk.  They have set up a very brief survey here
