Here on our carbon neutral Devon dairy farm, we strive to put nature first as much as we can. From our packaging and recycling to our award-winning AD Plant where we turn food waste into electricity, we are always striving to do as much as we can.
From ludicrously creamy ice creams, famous clotted cream, luxurious dessert yogurts and pouring creams to zingy sorbets, light frozen yoghurt, healthy cottage cheeses and zero fat Greek style yoghurt were so proud of our award winning range. We’ve been farming the land since 1947 and have been creating a true slice of Devon flavours since 1980 when Mrs Harvey first added value to their milk by skimming the golden Channel Island cream off the top! From our family to yours, from field to fridge, every day!
