The Dorset Dairy Co
Cribhouse Farm, Stallbridge, Sturminster NewtonDorset DT10 2RD
Dan is the third generation of the family to embrace the world of dairy farming at Crib House Farm. He began culturing milk on the AGA in the farm kitchen and straining it through cheese cloth to achieve a thick, creamy texture. The results were an instant success with family and friends and so the idea of Dorset Strained Yoghurt was born.
As sales grew, so did the amount of cream by-product and this was in turn fermented into Dorset Cultured Cream and churned into Dorset Cultured Butter.
Today The Dorset Dairy Co sells its natural strained yoghurt along with these other products and fresh milk which is sold through vending machines in local towns and villages

Overton Farm, Babcary, Somerton Somerset
The farm is run by Dave and his partner Rosie, but it’s the Guernsey cows that makes the Hurdlebrook produce special. All 200 of them have their own names and personalities; Dave’s favourite is a gentle little cow called Sunshine, whilst Rosie’s favourite is Rosey!
The Guernsey raw milk is golden in colour due to the breed’s inefficiency to digest the beta carotene in the grass and forage. This gives the milk the beautiful flavour and colour, and also makes it silkier, thicker and more delicious than standard milk in a way that is hard to describe.
The farm also produces a range of yoghurts using the same milk but it is pasteurised for this puropse
