  1. It was two full days filming, we don’t have much say to what’s shown & what’s kept for the program, we’ve had lots of lovely comments from Sheffield folk.
  2. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000ryp6/countryfile-ellies-home-turf This is the BBC iPlayer link to the episode, it’s 15 minutes in: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000ryp6/countryfile-ellies-home-turf
  3. For those not wanting to visit an actual food shop because they may be in a high risk group & vulnerable there is a vending machine shop that’s opened up, it’s open 8am - 8pm everyday. it offers an option of food shopping without coming in to contact with anyone. Milk, butter, pies, sausage & bacon, honey & jams, eggs, cream, orange juice etc. it’s on bus 61 & 62 Route (hill top rd stop) LOCATION: Rye Land / Hill Top road, Dungworth. S6 6GW.

  4. Definitely we’ve still got bottles with the 4 digit Sheffield number on !. My grandad (Hector) died earlier this year & we had a reprint of one of his most famous milk bottle designs done for folk to take from his funeral to remember him, there’s also loads of them in daily use on the Stannington milk round. its a shame he didn’t get to see the glass bottles in a supermarket, he was really proud to see the dairy farm he started passed on to a 3rd generation.
  5. We collect them everyday wash them & reuse them, exactly the same as our milk round. We have bottles which have been used everyday for over 20 years. We collect them everyday wash them & reuse them, exactly the same as our milk round. We have bottles which have been used everyday for over 20 years. the University of Sheffield studied it & after 13 used glass is better than plastic, this was a whole life study birth to death of the packaging plus the extra diesel used to transport the heavier glass.
  6. The Co-op on Ecclesall road asked if we could deliver them milk in glass bottles to offer shoppers a plastic free option so we have done.
  7. All our lambs are now in the front field if you’d like to visit them, we have made them a lamb park with a bridge & slide they love to use. https://images.app.goo.gl/AzUokztYEwsh2YAdA Visiting times 11am - 5pm Wed, Fri,Sat,Sun
  8. We had triplet lambs born last night & they will hopefully come up in to the pens in the yard over the weekend. The triplet lambs are now in the front yard, we do allow bottle feeding but it totally depends if they want feeding when your here, so no guarantees.
  9. We have had our first lambs born this week on the farm, folk are welcome to come & visit them when we are open. 11am - 5pm Wed / Fri / Sat / Sun Its free to come & visit our lambs & we have a toilet, hand washing & hand sanitiser, lambs will be being born for the next month or so. Our Cow Molly Farm, Hill Top Rd, Dungworth, Sheffield, S6 6GW
  10. We are happy to supply milkmen if you find one or you can pick our milk up here: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?hl=en&hl=en&mid=1953O9jDigdPadXquTQ15kadek3M&ll=53.393782922650615%2C-1.5130740645996639&z=13 Our cows come in from grazing in the fields in the evening in to our milking parlour we then pasteurise & bottle the milk through the night & deliver it out from 3am making it the freshest milk in Sheffield (and actually the only milk produced & bottled in Sheffield too now). The milk in supermarkets goes from farm to processing plant to distributor to supermarket hubs & then to local stores so its never as fresh as getting it from the dairy farmer & you tend to loose the natural sweetness too.
  11. We deliver to doorsteps in Stannington & Loxley milkman@ourcowmolly.co.uk Our milk is now the only milk produced & bottled in Sheffield so if it’s not milk that’s come from our farm it definitely won’t be local milk, I know many milkmen claim the milk they are offering is local but there’s no other milk bottleing plants in Sheffield only ours. We are more than happy to supply milkmen with Sheffield milk if they want it.
  12. There's definetly not too much milk being produced, our dairy farm is the last one still producing & bottling it's own milk in Sheffield now. They like to say there's too much milk to enable them to cut the price they pay for it, the UK imports liquid milk on a daily basis as we are no longer self sufficient in milk. ---------- Post added 15-04-2015 at 07:28 ---------- We deliver our Sheffield milk the SAME DAY it's come from our cows & have done for over 60 years, supermarket milk is often a week from cow to shelf , by which stage the 9 essential vitamins & nutrients have deteriorated, you want your milk as fresh as you can get it. ---------- Post added 15-04-2015 at 07:34 ---------- Just for interest where would you presume their milk came from ?
  13. We only have lambs each year because folk in Sheffield want to buy them to eat every year, you might not agree with folk choosing to eat meat but if nobody wanted them we wouldn't have any lambs on our farm.
  14. Thanks, it's a great flavour. ---------- Post added 14-04-2015 at 21:23 ---------- 16 flavours of ice cream to scoop, Yorkshire highland beef, round green farm venison, moss valley pork, Sheffield honey, eggs & potatoes, we go for quality not quantity & try to support other Sheffield farms produce. ---------- Post added 14-04-2015 at 21:28 ---------- If there are lambs in the newborn enclosure then yes, but if they are out in the field no. If the ewe is stamping her front foot then your upsetting her, (just to give you a guide of how the sheep feels).
  15. They have not grow big enough for mint sauce, but we are a working farm & they are for feeding Sheffield folk ultimately.
  16. Our newborn lambs are out in the fields around the farm, your more than welcome to visit them, please park in the front field. Visiting times 11am - 6pm Wednesday Friday Saturday & Sunday No charge. Please keep dogs away so it doesn't stress the sheep as they are very protective with their lambs.
  17. Hi Some folk just don't understand that they are just baby's, that's why Open Farm Sunday is so important its our chance as farmers to spend time explaining the whole farm. https://www.facebook.com/events/397022707077201/ ---------- Post added 04-06-2013 at 22:02 ---------- Have you tried the Sheffield Honey ripple, its made from bee's that fly amongst our cows in the fields. ---------- Post added 04-06-2013 at 22:07 ---------- If you ask we can point you to the field there in we have 80 somewhere :-) ---------- Post added 04-06-2013 at 22:13 ---------- The Moderators are very fair, if I've overstepped the mark (which I have done in the past) my post has been deleted, as I understand it discussions & answering questions is ok, but if I was to start promoting our latest offers etc that would not be. We don't charge to families to visit our farm & don't look to sell anything on the forum. ---------- Post added 04-06-2013 at 22:25 ---------- Thank you, that's very kind. We saw our Uncles Sheffield dairy farm close their bottling dairy at Christmas they supplied much more milk then we do to door steps all over Crosspool & fullwood its such a shame but makes me & my brother work harder so we can pass our dairy farm on to our children, it just wouldn't seen right if the greenest city didn't have a dairy farm. Its Open Farm Sunday this sunday we are doing tours all day if you want to see what we do day to day. ---------- Post added 04-06-2013 at 22:58 ---------- On Sunday (June 9th) it is National Open Farm Sunday - we are taking part. There will be no cost to come to the farm, no cost to park, no cost to go on the tours of the milking parlour & inside our dairy, we wont sell you bags of food to feed the animals etc, its a day all about asking questions about where your food comes from & how we care for our animals. there has been some concern that some view our posts as adverts, I'm sorry some fell like that, yes there are "things" you can buy on the farm but we are more than happy for you to visit this annual event for nowt & spend nowt :-) This is a link to Open Farm Sunday at our farm if you would like to know more: https://www.facebook.com/events/397022707077201/ ---------- Post added 04-06-2013 at 23:01 ---------- On Sunday (June 9th) it is National Open Farm Sunday - we are taking part.

  18. On Sunday (June 9th) its national open farm Sunday, this is where farms swing their gates open and show the public what happens on a real working farm, its well worth going along to one of the Sheffield farms taking part, its a great way to find out about those people producing the food. ---------- Post added 04-06-2013 at 21:50 ---------- This is what our Sheffield farm is doing.... https://www.facebook.com/events/397022707077201/ ---------- Post added 04-06-2013 at 21:53 ---------- https://www.facebook.com/events/397022707077201/
  19. I don't think they will spend money with local company's like cream did, they were a good customer for us, so not good for Sheffields economy. I will be going in to see if they would like to buy Sheffield milk but think its unlikely. I should go to Remos cafe or Refresh both who use Sheffield milk the same morning it's come from the cows #SuperFreshMilk
  20. That was a couple of years ago, Marks & Spencer offered £70 for our website so its probably about right.

  22. The UK has 10,000 dairy farms left now & the BBC have said many times 1 farm closes everyday & that the UK imports over 1million litres of milk daily so they do close for sure.Bradfild Brewary farm was a dairy not long ago. No subsidies would be far better & a pint of milk at volvic water prices less hassle for us, but would you want to pay £1.30 a pint ? You wonder how volvic water sells when water out the tap is almost free.
  23. I think you should be able to watch in on BBC iplayer (LookNorth) The Story is about dairy farming, I went down to London on the #SosDairy protest and was interviewed by the BBC, so they wanted to follow up the story. Sheffield University have recently asked us to supply them so they covered that bit in the story, you know carbon foot print, food miles etc etc, oh and the fact they get it the morning its come from our cows was important too :-) We milk our cows process the milk in our own dairy carton it up & deliver it ourselves all in the same morning, so there's some coverage about us calling it #SuperFreshMilk too. Any milk that leaves the farm raw still goes for less than it costs us to produce it but hopefully before Christmas we will be breaking even again, I really feel sorry for dairy farmers who send all their milk away at less than it costs them to produce it which is mainly why I went to London on the protest.
  24. Hi Warrior, sorry I must have missed your email some how :-( sorry. We put a poster up in the ice cream parlour to make sure our regular customers got tickets for the bonfire first, in 4 days it was totally sold out so no need for us to promote it any further ie our website etc. Every penny of the ticket money goes to charity this year its split 50/50 between Sheffield Children's Hospital Charity & Help a Child Have a Chance.
