Organic milk, cream, ice cream, yoghurt, beef and veal from North Aston.
NAD is a super small, personal, dairy farm with the onus on producing high quality (low input) milk from healthy, happy and long-lived cows. They try to sell as locally as possible and at an affordable price.
Josh, Graham and Eileen work together on the farm, in the processing room, on milk rounds and on the market stall to bring you their herd's delicious produce. They have one of the smallest economically viable dairy herds in the country. From the milk of their 18 cows they produce organic, pasteurised whole and part-skimmed milk, natural thick-set yoghurt and super thick cream (all sold in re-used glass containers). They always have fresh or frozen meat in stock. From the calves that aren't destined for a life of milking they produce Rose Veal from a diet of just milk and grass/hay. They also bring the beef from retired milking cows. This is normally from animals about 10 years older than beef available anywhere else and this maturation adds a richness of flavour.
Ice cream is the latest addition to the product range. Since the business started there has always been an issue of how to sell all the milk fresh with production and demand fluctuating through the season. For a few years they have been experimenting with ice cream flavours and this year they will be producing ice cream most weeks through the spring and summer and should have some with them at the market every week. Flavours currently being produced are: Poppy Seed, Vanilla, Plain, Coffee, Chocolate, Rosewater & Cardamom and Salted Honey
