Are you really a farm?
YES! We are based at Bolton Fold Farm, in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire. Ann and Edward moved to the farm back in the 70’s.
Where does your milk come from?
100% of our milk comes from the farm run by Ann’s son, Stephen. This ensures that we are using the freshest of milk as well as not causing any carbon footprint transporting the milk as we have pipework installed directly into the dairy!
Do any of your products contain nuts?
No, our whole dairy is a nut free site.
Do you do any sugar free yogurts?
Yes, all our natural yogurt is sugar free. But we also have a range of fruited ‘healthstyle’ yogurts, these are fruited yogurts with apple juice rather than sugar to add enough sweetness.
However, all yogurt does contain naturally occurring sugars from the lactose in the milk.
Are your yogurts safe for pregnant women?
Yes, we only use pasteurised milk so all our yogurts are completely safe for pregnant women.
Where can I get your products?
Our products are available throughout the UK in retailers and a number of independent shops / farm shops. Please have a look on our ‘Where to buy‘ section of our website to find your nearest store.
Can I recycle your products?
The majority of our products are fully recyclable and are made from recycled materials where possible. Please look at the details on pack for further information.
We are always looking at ways that we can improve our recycling within the dairy and with the packaging for our yogurts.
We have also recently launched our ‘luxury layered range’ which is a 140ml layered yogurt in a glass jar. (Click to find out more). We wanted to create a yogurt that didn’t have any plastic packaging. It also has the added benefit of the jar being reusable, click to see our suggested ideas for recycling our glass jars.
