The home of happy healthy cross bred cows
We are tenant farmers on the Rode Hall Estate nr Congleton, Cheshire. Tom is second generation following on from his father Philip who came to the estate back in 1968 milking just 35 cows. In 2012 Tom & myself took over the business with our son Jack under the company name of Halton Farms Ltd.
Tom especially has always been very passionate about selling his milk directly to people especially via doorstep delivery. In 2016 we ventured into selling raw milk via a vending machine at the farm which took off really quickly and this inspired Tom even more to start pasteurising and get our milk directly to the customer. So in March this year our dreams came true and we set up a very small, on farm pasteurizing plant.

Try it yourself
We truly believe milk tastes better in glass rather than plastic. We did the taste test many years ago and we could tell the difference. Try it for yourself by placing 1 pint of milk in a glass bottle and 1 pint of milk in a plastic container and leave in the fridge for 3 days. Now remember our milk is non-homogenized so you will have to shake before tasting.
If that hasn’t persuaded you to move away from plastic then please look at a website called “The Ocean Is Everybody’s Business” and hopefully that will change your mind.
Another tip, if you buy your milk in pint glass bottles consider 1 Litre glass bottles. 1 Litre is the equivalent of approx 1.76 pints. By doing this you could:
Free up some fridge space
Save on foil lids as the 1 Litre bottles have a nice colour coded twist reusable lids
Save on bottle handling & washing
