31 January 2015 – BBC Farming Today on the dairy industry

If you can get BBC Farming Today on iplayer, there was a good radio programme on the UK dairy industry this morning. It featured a Norfolk farmer from Fen Farm Dairy with a milk vending machine on the road outside the farm – this made a profit, unlike milk supplied to the large-scale dairy. The programme also featured dairy farmer Neil Darwent (see previous post 16 January) and his free range dairy network that aims to:
‘offer farmers an alternative vision of the future founded on value rather than volume, by promoting a way of farming that:

Pays a fair price for farmers
Gives cows the freedom to graze for six months (days and nights)
Delivers healthy, affordable for consumers
