Relationships are everything for dairy farmers

Elwyn’s family farm has a 250-cow herd of Holstein-Friesians, with half a dozen Jerseys it keeps for showing.

“We enjoy the farming life,” he says. “When it’s tough it’s a matter of getting your head down and getting through it, but like most dairy farmers we do it for the love of it.”

The third generation Welsh dairy farming family started supplying us in 2017 and have been making the most of a newly installed dairy unit.

For Elwyn, becoming one of our producers was all about having closer contact with his buyer. “It’s important to be able to talk to your supplier. Everyone has issues on the farm from time to time. Being able to phone somebody and having that relationship is very important for me.”
