Ahimsa Slaughter-free Milk now on sale

Category:

Organic milk from cows that will never see the inside of a slaughter-house when their milking days are over, was delivered for the first time last week. This brings about a revolution in milk production.

No cow, calf or bull will ever be slaughtered to bring this quality product to the breakfast table. Instead they will be protected for life, ensuring families can be confident no animal will suffer to bring them milk.

The breakthrough has been made possible by the Ahimsa Dairy Foundation (ADF) working in partnership with the Organic Milk Supplier’s co-operative (OMS co) and one of their supplier farms in Kent, Commonwork, which seeks local and global sustainability.

At present the milk, which costs £2.25 a litre and 15p for doorstep delivery, is being distributed in North West London and parts of Hertfordshire. National distribution is being explored and subject to demand it might be possible to do drop offs in other areas. Other products such as butter and cfream will also be added in the future.

Patrick Holden, former director of the Soil Association said, “I am delighted that Ahimsa Slaughter-free milk is now on the market and very much welcome the initiative. As a dairy farmer myself I am inspired by this example. It is setting a benchmark for farmers around the world and proves they can farm without exploiting their cows.”

    This sounds like a wonderful means of producing milk. I am vegetarian and would love to find dairy and egg products from farms that are cruelty-free and sustainable. However, I live in the Bay Area of California. Any hope of getting your products here? Or do you know of farms in Northern California that have similar beliefs about raising animals?

    What A brilliant Idea! THOUGHT OF THIS MYSELF A LONG TIME AGO, AS I LOVE ALL FARMED ANIMALS!
    Still enjoy a glass of milk and eating cheese and butter, but am very concerned about welfare of cows and calves!
    Well done!

    Having seen first hand the standards of milking cows and what happens to their Calves (Killed at birth or pumped full of steroids for 6 months before being killed for cheap mince) I am so glad this company has come up with an alternative. I wonder whether there is any way of getting it into a supermarket chain as I for one would spend the extra couple of pounds to know that an animal has not suffered for my enjoyment. We live in North Wales and if ever this milk becomes available I will be the first to buy it!!!

    this is one of the best initiatives I have heard of ever. I am also in Somerset and I am very concerned regarding this subject. apart from taking a vegan stance, this is the best next solution. I would always pay extra to prevent an animal suffering, even on a low income. we need this milk in Somerset please!!!!!!
