A Taste of Dorchester - Hollis Mead Dairy
Heritage Open Day: A tour of an organic dairy farm with talks about sustainable dairy farming and `Safe Cows'. The ethos of the farm is to produce very high quality organic milk and food, whilst enhancing the environment for wildlife. It is our firm belief that cheap food has a cost and sadly this is nature
At Hollis Mead, we farm sensitively to make room for wildlife to prosper. All our farm animals, such as our dairy herd is fed on organic pasture land, free from pesticides and insecticides, allowing them to produce milk of a superior quality.
Intensive agricultural practices are strictly forbidden on the farm and all our farming activities are risk assessed for protecting the plethora of wildlife which flourishes.
The farm will be open every day of HOD2021 between 2pm and 4pm for tours and talks on sustainable farming and `safe cows'.
