Meon Valley Milk stems from a small family farm in Hampshire, producing high quality milk for over 35 years. Fourth generation; Stewart Humphrey of Lodge Farm in Southwick introduces ‘Meon Valley Milk’. Providing fresh milk direct from the farm to the customer, through a self-service vending machine.
The herd of 140 Holsteins are milked twice a day. The quality is achieved through home rearing with a “free-range” system, where the pedigree herd can enjoy a grass-fed diet for up to 9 months of the year, with the freedom to choose to graze outside or rest indoors. In the winter months, they enjoy eating home grown silage and maize, while taking shelter in the barn.
Delicious pasteurised whole milk, straight from the farm. We do not homogenise the milk so the cream rises to the top, a treat on the first pour, or if you like your milk whole, simply give the bottle a shake before use.
Our aim is to share delicious milk with the local community, whilst reducing food miles and the use of plastic. We hope the vending machine will encourage households to do their bit towards helping the environment and convert from buying plastic milk cartons to purchasing a re-usable glass bottle that can be refilled again and again.
