Stone’s Dairy

Stone’s Dairy’s full-flavoured, clean-tasting milk comes from a mix of Friesians and Red Polls, giving it a light creaminess and versatility. It’s great for just drinking on its own but creamy enough to perk up your morning coffee no end.

The cream and butter have an old-fashioned taste that has built up a dedicated fan base who travel regularly to buy at the farm gate or seek out the regular stalls at farmers’ markets and car-boot sales.

Farmer Matt Stone is only in his late 20s but comes from generations of dairy farmers. Together with wife Katie they have gone to back to basics, farming in a traditional, small-scale way where each animal is known well, the cows live happily next to the milking parlour and their milk is sold unpasteurised and unhomogenised, just filtered.

You can buy with confidence too – to get their raw milk licence, Stone’s Diary implements a stringent hygiene regime and is inspected weekly.

Stone’s milk is currently available in two-litre bottles for £2, the butter at £3 for 200g and cream at £1.50 for 200ml. You can call in at the farm on Ingarsby Road, Keyham, but it’s best to order ahead by calling on 07883 471865. For more information see www.facebook.com/stonesdairy.

  1. SHARON ASTILL says:
    Milk like it used to taste!I absolutely love this dairy and everything it has to offer! Raw milk, freshly churned butter and thick cream. The health benefits aside, all of their products taste great and are the perfect ingredients for home baking. Their raw milk makes THE best rice pudding and I love their cream with my homemade jam and scones. Delicious.
    • Maureen Stone says:

      Thank you Sharon, Matthew’s passion for farming shows through in the milk and all of the products he and Katie make (Proud Mum)
