Breed History

Jersey cows are a neighbour to our Golden Guernsey goats. They are from Jersey! It is thought that the first Jersey cows came to Britain in the 1700s and have been a favourite with dairy farmers here ever since!

Our Purpose

Jersey cattle are a dairy breed, meaning they are kept for their milk. Jersey cows produce special creamy milk filled with protein and minerals. Their milk is so creamy it is often used for making butter and ice cream!
