Welcome to Church Farm Dairy
Church Farm is very much a family run Dairy Farm in the beautiful rural area of Bittadon, Near Barnstaple. Stephen and Linda currently farm here with the help of their two children. The land has been in the Houlford family for three generations. In recent years, there have been many changes to farming practices although the one constant factor is the pedigree herd of cows that have been bred from the original line. The production of milk has increased with the growth of the herd and this has given Church Farm the opportunity of producing our own traditional Clotted Cream.
The welfare of our cows is paramount and this is ratified by a scheme run by our vets who constantly monitor and measure the welfare of our cows. During the Summer months the cows graze on fields with views over Exmoor, Dartmoor and the Coast and in Winter they have their own individual 'beds' to sleep on!
The Clotted Cream couldn't be fresher - the milk is taken from the cows and whilst still warm is separated and processed immediately ready for delivery the following morning. HACCP and strict hygiene controls are in place.
We truly believe that by buying our local Clotted Cream you have the assurance that the product has not travelled any major distance or for a significant length of time and you can see exactly where it originates!
