Over 10 Years of Slaughter Free Milk As Seen on:


Become part of our mission to make slaughter-free milk a reality across Britain and beyond.


Our cow sponsorship pack comprises of certificate of sponsorship, photo of you cow, fridge magnet and stickers, and starts from as little as £3 a month.

“Ahimsa” farming is the traditional, ancient Indian method of farming. “Ahimsa” means “non-violent”, and so Ahimsa farming does not entail any harm to the animals or land. Some would call it ‘Yoga farming’, or working in natural harmony with the land.

At our Rutland Ahimsa Eco-Dairy, we uphold the principles inherent in this self-sustaining and cow protecting method.

  1. We never kill a cow
  2. Our calves suckle from their mothers until weaned
  3. We primarily milk by hand
  4. We give our oxen meaningful work

Our farm is small but self-sustaining. Our delicious, vitamin D rich, pure milk is delivered to our customers weekly and we have over 1000 names on our waiting list.

We have one bull in a field whom we allow a cow to spend a few days with if we decide she is ready to be impregnated.

26th July 2020 – Superhero passes away

It is with great sadness we would like to announce the passing away of our four year old bull, Superhero. Superhero is the father of Jambo, Cocoa, Florence, Jagannath and Honeysuckle. He was mild mannered, quite unusual in that sense as bulls tend to be full of vigour and strength. An unfortunate incident took place with one of our boisterous oxen Henry who jumped a fence into the bull field last Thursday. It was a…
