The Ethical Dairy
Agricultural consultant for 10 years, Returned to the 340ha tenanted, mixed livestock, LFA, family farm in S.W. Scotland. Ten years of farm intensification left me disillusioned. Have now been farming organically for well over 20 years. Was the inaugural chair of Scottish Organic Milk Producers and treasurer of Caledonian Organics. We make ice-cream (sold throughout the UK), have an open farm (up to 70,000 visitors a year) and have moved into raw-milk cheese production from our ground-breaking cow-with-calf dairy system. Ecological farming can be as productive and profitable as any.
