On the farm

Dairy farming was first introduced to Wheelbirks in 1925, when Colin Richardson recognised a market for locally produced, top quality milk. The Wheelbirks herd of pedigree Jerseys are the oldest established and the only pedigree herd in Northumberland.

The dairy farming methods have been passed down through the generations and present owners, brothers Tom and Hugh Richardson, still maintain the same high standards of the family line.

Unpasteurised milk
The Jersey dairy herd at Wheelbirks, now comprising of over 120 cows, produce Jersey milk that’s hugely popular with people looking for a wholesome, nutritious start to their day, and now these qualities are being put to good use at Wheelbirks.
