Certified by Pasture for Life, award winning, Organic dairy farm Mossgiel in Ayrshire is “working with nature, not against it.” Taking the decision to shift away from intensive practices, it’s now focused on “better” dairy.

  • The herd of 45 Ayrshire cows are fed only on grass and are free to roam.
  • 10% of the farm has been allowed to rewild to give nature a helping hand.  
  • In 2021 the farm won the tender to supply the Nurseries and Primary Schools of East Ayrshire with the first zero-waste, zero-emissions deliveries, 100% Organic Milk contract in the UK

Bryce Cunningham of Mossgiel dairy explains how they transitioned from intensive to organic dairy farming and saw nature return. Watch here.
