In 1938, Harry Workman founded Cotteswold Dairy Ltd when it was just a 30 gallon milk round. Harry grew the business by adhering to a strict policy of real service to the customer and top quality products.
Today, these values are still at the forefront of their business and it is because of this that they are thriving as an independent, 3rd generation family owned dairy in a very competitive market place.
Cotteswold Dairy currently contract around 40 local farmers to supply them with raw milk.
They are proud to be working closely with them in order to ensure a constant supply of consistently high quality raw milk and because they are all within a 30 mile radius of their site, they are able to reduce the time the milk spends travelling which means higher quality product for their customers.
All of their contracted farmers are members of the National Dairy Farm Assured Scheme and as such, they must comply with a large number of standards in order to ensure that their herd is properly nourished and cared for in a comfortable environment with sufficient space for free movement. If you would like more information about the scheme, you can visit www.ndfas.org.uk
Their incoming raw milk is tested daily in thier own in-house laboratory and is also tested by an independent laboratory once a week. Their farmers are sent their results each week so they are kept up to date with all information and are able to react quickly to any potential problems which may arise.
