The Village Dairy

We have found a real gem here. This is real milk. This is how I remember milk tasting when I was growing up. The Village Dairy is a small dairy in Carlow that doesn't compromise on quality for the sake of a few cents. Their award winning Jersey milk is the creamiest I've tasted and comes from Woodstown Abbott farm in Co Meath who have the oldest Jersey herd in Ireland.
At the moment they have around 12 local farmers supplying their Organic and Non Organic milk. The milk is pasteurised and homogenised but they tamper with it as little as possible to maintain its great natural flavour. 
And for the coffee lovers out there The Village Dairy Organic Milk, which was a 2016 Blas na hÉireann finalist, is quickly becoming the choice milk for baristas around the country because of the silky smooths results and sweet taste it produces.
We have their Organic Milk, Jersey Milk, Low fat and Full fat, and their Organic Cream. They also have Goats milk which we will stock if there is demand. Let us know.
