About us

Who we are

Hi! We’re the Brown family. 

We start our day at the break of dawn, our dedicated team Ray, Ryan, Mel and Jess begin their day at 3am. By 6am our cows have been milked and are happily grazing on the fresh grass over the road. With a 12-hour milking gap we prioritise our cows’ wellbeing. In the afternoon at 2:30pm, milking resumes. 

To maintain the utmost freshness, we process our milk three times a week – on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. This schedule ensures our milk is always at it’s best. 

Our farm shop is more than a business, it’s family. Ray starts each morning with unwavering commitment, while Jill cares for everyone with drinks, toast and baked treats. Adam and Becky oversee the processing and delightful ice cream creations, while Ryan, Becky and Mel tend to the farm. 

We’re open 7 days a week from 9am – 5pm. Enjoy our coffee shop with indoor and outdoor seating, we’re dog-friendly too! Eco Roast Coffee, lattes, cappuccinos and more. Try our homemade pies, cakes and tray bakes. Our convenient locker boxes despatching milk, cream, butter, eggs, glass bottles even bobble hats and vending machine dispatching semi & whole milk & also flavoured milk are open 7am – 9:30pm.

Relax on our veranda and take in the countryside and views of Jodrell Bank. We have ample parking available too! 

With an enthusiastic and passionate team, we take pride in offering you the freshest product and always a warm welcome.

The Brown Family - Bidlea Dairy

What we stand for


With Bidlea Dairy, you know exactly where our milk has come from. At our family run farm in the heart of Cheshire we raise, milk and process all milk products.

Delivered direct from our farm to you!


We care about our girls like members of our family. At Bidlea Dairy our cows have the highest quality conditions. We have a strict non-GMO policy.

Our girls recently came first in the 'Herd Competition 2021' - Happy cows make the tastiest milk!


Our cows are our number one priority. In order to keep the girls happy, we cultivate the farmland around us and allow smaller ecosystems to flourish. Everything our herd eats is grown in the Cheshire countryside either by us or by our carefully selected providers.

The herd

For as long as we’ve had our dairy farm, we’ve only ever raised one herd. The Bidlea Herd.

They’re a really special breed of cows, and we really do love getting up at 3.30am every morning to milk them. They’re our girls. Their welfare means everything to us.

We’re committed to giving them as free and natural an environment as possible, letting them enjoy the wonderful Cheshire countryside and feed from only the best local suppliers.

We know that a cow’s temperament affects their milk, so we make sure our girls are as happy as they can be, so you get the highest quality and tastiest milk from them. Pure. Natural. Delicious.

the next generation

We’re Adam, Becky and Harriet, Ryan, Becky, Emmie and Maisie. We’re the latest generation of dairy farmers at Bidlea, continuing on the passion of Ray, Jill and Mel. 

We’re continuing our family’s passion for high welfare, high quality, deliciously fresh milk, and we’re helping to bring Bidlea Milk to even more people around the Cheshire area.

We’re passionate about the nutritional benefits of milk, about our carbon footprint, and about the understanding and awareness of what makes milk so great.

Together we’re focused on community engagement, sustainability and traceability, and simply promoting our delicious milk, straight from our farm in Cheshire.
