About us

Who we are

Hi! We’re the Brown family.

We’ve been living on our farm, raising our girls, for over 40 years.

From just 20 cows originally to an almost 1000-strong herd, the reputation of our Bidlea Girls – Holstein-Friesian cows – has seen them win both National and European awards.

We’ve been dairy farmers for three generations, and we intend to be dairy farmers for many more years to come. We don’t think you’ll find anyone who loves milk more than we do and we’re passionate about promoting the benefits of fresh farm milk, processed right here in Cheshire.

What we stand for

TRACEABILITY

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!

QUALITY

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!

SUSTAINABILITY

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 and Emmelia. We’re the latest generation of dairy farmers at Bidlea, continuing on the passion of Mel, Jill and Ray. 

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.
