Launched by brother and sister Sarah and Sam Coles, the dairy farm has dozens of cows and claims to offer “the freshest and tastiest milk around.”

Talking to Burnham-On-Sea.com, Sarah said: “We are milking approximately 80 cows, a mixed herd of British frisians and jerseys.”

“The farm is a working family farm run by father Steve Coles and mother Liz Coles with their son Sam and daughter Sarah.”

“We take pride in keeping our herd happy and healthy being free range. We have started a new family business adventure providing farm-fresh, pasteurised whole milk to the public from a vending machine.”

“It’s a self-service machine and we are open seven days a week, 7am till 10pm.”

“We believe that our milk is the freshest and tastiest milk around and want to be able to share the goodness that comes from our herd of cows.”

“We supply one litre glass bottles at the farm which are reusable bottles for just £1 and then our super fresh pasteurised milk is £1 for 1 litre.”

She says that the response so far has been “hugely positive” with queues of customers at busy times all wanting a taste of the milk, which is creamier and more tasty than conventional supermarket milk.
