Last Sunday we had a farm open day at Abbey Farm Dairy! It was great to meet so many people that love our milk and we had a wonderful time showing everyone around the dairy. Thank you for coming...we hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about where your milk comes from! Here are a few pictures from the day....
OPEN FARM DAY - SUNDAY 5TH JUNE
Come and meet our cows from 11am on Sunday. We will be there to show you around the dairy, where you can visit the milk parlour, see the cows grazing and meet our new born calves.
WE KEEP A VISITORS BOOK NEXT TO OUR VENDING MACHINE AND WE LOVE READING ALL THE COMMENTS THAT OUR CUSTOMERS WRITE DAILY...HERE ARE JUST A FEW
