Map: Where to buy milk direct from farm

Buying milk straight from the farm is one way to source milk during the cornonavirus pandemic and it also helps make sure dairy producers get a fair deal.

Farmers Weekly has created a map of British farmers selling direct to the public – cutting out the supermarket or middleman. Many of these suppliers sell via online shops or can arrange contact-free delivery.

Some produce pasteurised milk, others sell raw or unpasteurised and a few have a wider dairy range to try.

Click on the map below to find on-farm dairies near you where you can buy direct, if you’re a consumer, or, if you’re a dairy farmer selling direct, you can send us your details and we’ll add you to the map.

We’ll update the map as more recommendations come in. 

We need your help to keep it growing: If you know a brilliant farmer bottling milk (or you are one yourself) then tweet @FarmersWeekly or email FWbusiness@rbi.co.uk with the details.
