Welcome to the organic milk education site! Here you can learn more about organic dairy farming and how it differs from non-organic farming.
There is also lots of information about our exciting Hedgerow Safari programme including what it involves, how it links with the National Curriculum, news, feedback and how to book.
Throughout the spring and summer we run a series of Hedgerow Safaris on our farms around the UK. These are aimed at Key Stage 2 level and are an excellent way of having fun while learning about organic farming and the environment. There is no charge for these events and we'll give you some goodies to take away too.
Milk doesn't just come from the shop or supermarket. In order for you to get milk on the breakfast table, dairy farmers have to work hard all year round (even Christmas Day) looking after and milking their cows. In this section you can learn about the dairy cow's year and some of the differences between organic and non-organic farming.
Have you ever wondered what it is like to live and work on an organic dairy farm? Hill House Farm is an actual working farm near Bristol and the Hurford family will be writing a regular blog so that you can keep up to date with what's happening with the people, cows and wildlife that live here.
