Over the past 29 years, we’ve grown massively as an organisation. What started as a single partnership has evolved into a diverse array of organic dairy products, from delicious milk to moreish Cheddar, and dairy ingredients such as milk powder. We are considered solution providers for anything relating to organic dairy.

‘Omsco’, or the ‘Organic Milk Suppliers Co-Operative’ as we were then called, began offering organic milk and dairy products that were free from herbicides, pesticides, GMOs.

We quickly realised that we were on to something good, and sure enough, we soon started collaborating with Yeo Valley. This initial collaboration, which continues to this day, marked the inception of a moo-vement aimed at transforming the dairy landscape.

Over the past 28 years, we’ve grown massively as an organisation. What started as a single partnership has evolved into a diverse array of organic dairy products and ingredients, from delicious milk to creamy butter and other protein-rich offerings. 

And we don’t just sell to other businesses. Now we sell our own products, each of which proudly bears our new name ‘Organic Herd’.

run by farmers. For Farmers.

Organic Herd proudly stands as the UK’s foremost organic dairy co-operative, fully owned and run by farmers who share a commitment to sustainable and organic farming. We believe in answering the modern challenges of food production, animal welfare, and the environment through the traditional wisdom of organic farming – true farming, without compromise. 

Our farms are scattered across the UK, from the depths of Cornwall to the wild Highlands of Scotland. Whilst our homes may be very different, what unites us is our common belief – that how we farm matters, and that organic is the way to go.

Cultivating a Sustainable vision

Our journey isn’t just about sustainable farming; it’s about a shared vision for a more sustainable dairy industry. At Organic Herd, we look at the entire supply chain, from our fields to your shelves. Our vision statement below outlines what we aspire to.

Our Vision

We want to build a better dairy industry. We’re not just about making milk; we’re about sparking a ‘moo-vement’ towards sustainable farming and ethical practices, with dairy farming and conservation going hand in hand. We envisage a future where dairy lovers can indulge without compromising their values. Dairy can be both irresistibly tasty and responsible when produced organically, in harmony with nature.

We know we can’t do it all on our own. That’s why we’re cultivating a community, our Herd, that passionately believes in better. Together, we’ll champion organic dairy, and inspire optimism as we build a brighter and more sustainable future.

Now that’s a solid toast. 10/10 recommend 🤣
Why are we buzzing about bees as much as our cows and farms? Let us spill the honey!
 
Just like our products, bees are a BIG deal around here – sometimes literally (we promise we didn’t add any growth hormones).
 
But here’s the real buzz: By saying NO to artificial pesticides and other nasties, we’re creating a haven for bees to thrive! Our commitment leads to a whopping 50% increase in bees, butterflies, and all those essential pollinators compared to the conventional farms. Talk about a hive-five moment! 🖐️

Now, back to business! This month we're shining a spotlight on the magic of grazing on organic farms, where lush pastures aren't just picturesque—they're essential for healthy ecosystems.

Swipe to the last slide for a heartwarming glimpse of a mother and calf moment on the farm, grazing together 🫶

So, why should you buy into organic? Because it's not just about what's on your plate—it's about the impact you make with every choice. 🌍💚
