About Us

Our story began in the early 1960′s when Matt & Eileen arrived at Little Town Farm, to begin their married life at the helm of the working dairy farm, the proud owners of their herd of 7 cows.

In the seventies they began bottling their own milk in a small dairy based on the farm and started to supply local shops and restaurants as well as to the doorstep.

By the eighties Eileen was looking at other ways to utilize and market the milk, yogurt was a relatively new concept that she was keen to explore. Following a short course, experimentation and trials began on the back of the Aga in the farmhouse kitchen.

Over the years this developed further and the existing dairy was simply too small. A purpose built dairy was established in 1993 and production extended into other cultured milk products including creme fraiche, soured cream, fromage frais and a range of different yogurt lines including Greek Yogurt and Premium ranges.

Embracing modern technology and industry accreditations, this facility is constantly evolving , most recently adding a farm shop and tea room to provide a further outlet for our produce.

Now, almost 50 years on, the company is still owned and managed by the family and remains within the grounds of the existing farmstead on the edge of The Forest of Bowland. Still using the milk produced on the family farm the company is now proud to serve major wholesale, retail, foodservice and food manufacturing customers throughout the country, continuing to uphold the highest standards of quality and service.
