Midtown Milkhouse opened on the 1st of august 2020. We are open 24/7 providing farm fresh milk to our local community and the surrounding areas. The milkhouse provides the opportunity for our customers to buy their milk direct from the farm, meaning zero food miles and a more sustainable product.
The milkhouse is situated on midtown farm in the heart of Caldbeck under the northern fells of the Lake District. Midtown farm is home to the Hodgson family, who have been farming in Caldbeck since 1939. Since then the herd has grown to 250 pedigree Holstein cows, called Midcroft Holsteins.
Midcroft Holsteins are a closed herd, this means we rear all our own stock. Our cows graze fresh grass for 200 days outside in the fields during the summer months and are housed inside in our comfortable cubicle sheds during the winter, where they eat our home grown forages. This enables us to get the best out of our cows and gives our cows a happy and stress free lifestyle. This results in a rich and creamy milk which we are very proud of!
