Raw milk farm opens its gates to the public

One of only two remaining dairy farms in Hertfordshire is opening its gates this weekend and inviting people to see where their milk comes from.

Friday, 3rd June 2016, 8:00 am

Wayside Farm in Kings Langley will open from 11am to 4pm on Sunday, June 5, and the Wray family will be showing off their pedigree herd of Gaddesden Jersey cows, which they have bred for more than 35 years.

These Jerseys, famous for their creamy milk, have recently been joined by some rare stunning English Longhorn cattle and this event is a chance to get up close and personal with them and their calves.

The Wrays, who were given a licence to sell raw milk last year, are keen for people young and old to make the most of this opportunity at a time when dairy farming is becoming ever more difficult.

On the day, there will be guided tours, sheep shearing, farm machinary demonstrations and the chance to buy local produce.

All profits made from selling the farm’s produce will go to the Herts Air Ambulance charity, who will be there on the day.

The farm is on the Watford Road, Kings Langley WD4 8EA, the entrance is just before the Link Road Roundabout.

Visitors are asked to park in the field (which is free) rather than on the road to avoid danger to pedestrians.
