Our Organic Dairy Farmers pride themselves on the organic principles that they have adhered to for years. All our farmers are fully certified organic by IOFGA and over half of our farmers are signed up to the GLAS scheme. The GLAS scheme is green as it preserves our traditional hay meadows and low-input pastures; low-carbon as it retains the carbon stocks in soil through margins, habitat preservation and practices such as minimum tillage; and, agri-environment as it promotes agricultural actions, which introduce or continue to apply agricultural production methods compatible with the protection of the environment, water quality, the landscape and its features, endangered species of flora and fauna and climate change mitigation.
All of The Little Milk Company organic farmers are proudly signed up to IOFGA – the Irish Organic Farmers & Growers Association. The Little Milk Company is a verified member of Origin Green Sustainability Programme. This programme enables Ireland’s food industry to set and achieve measurable sustainability targets that respect the environment and serve local communities more effectively.
Our farmers do not use chemicals, pesticides or GMO’s on their land. Our farmers build healthy soil using natural cultivation practices. Our farmers support water conservation and water health. Our farmers support animal health and welfare. Our farmers encourage biodiversity. The Little Milk Company respect the land, the environment and our children's future
