Farmers Weekly has been inundated by farmers and members of the public wanting to support our Milk Map of farms selling direct.
Add more farms to the map
The map was created in reaction to the dairy crisis as a way to help consumers buy milk where they knew the farmer was getting a fair price.
Emails and tweets have flooded in since it went live on Monday (10 August) from people suggesting dairy farms to add to the map.
It has even been picked up by the national press, with The Guardian newspaper asking to use it.
One shopper got in touch to say that they bought “fantastic milk from Roadford Valley at Landford Farm, Devon” and that they “thoroughly recommended” it.
Meanwhile a dairy farmer asked if his farm could be added, as he would be selling direct within a week.
Dairy farmers look for alternatives
Amid national farming protests and crisis talks between unions, dairy farmers are starting to look at alternative ways of selling their milk.
With processor prices on the floor, many are looking at how to sell direct and get a better price for their milk.
Help us add more farms to the map
At time of publication, the map has 25 dairy farms plotted, but the Farmers Weekly team is busily adding more farms.
