Cows and meadows belong together. Beautiful meadow landscapes have been shaped by the dairy industry for generations. It’s a lovely sight to see cows grazing in these meadows. Cows in meadows also have the space to exercise their natural grazing behaviour.
Meadow milk comes from farms where the cows are free to roam in meadows for at least 120 days each year, from Springtime through to the Autumn, and for at least 6 hours a day. In modern dairy farming it is not self-evident that cows will be free to graze from Spring to Autumn.
The Meadow Milk Logo guarantees that the dairy products have been made from meadow milk. This milk is collected and processed separately into daily fresh dairy products, including milk, buttermilk, custard, yoghurt and cheese. The Grazing Foundation warrants the production process, the transportation and the processing of the meadow milk. The logo is available to any producers who satisfy the relevant conditions.
