For over 50 years, many of Wirral’s shops, cafes and restaurants have entrusted Appleby’s Farm to supply them daily with farm-fresh, free-range eggs.
Now we are proud and excited to announce that our grass-fed dairy herd will shortly be the first on the Wirral to supply fresh, free-range, raw milk direct to the public.
What is Raw Milk?
Nothing’s been added and nothing’s been taken away. The milk has not been pasteurised like regular supermarket milk. The heat-treatment of pasteurisation kills off the “good bacteria”.
Its auto-immune system properties are beneficial to sufferers of eczema and asthma, and the natural pro-biotics it contains help with digestion and the absorption of calcium.
The milk is only available on the same day it is produced. You can’t get fresher!
How it Works
Drive to the Farm
The milk is not on sale in shops – it can only be bought direct from the farm. The milk is replenished daily with fresh, new milk, straight from the cow ensuring that you, our valued customer, have the freshest milk possible.
Select Your Bottle
We have the usual plastic milk cartons that you’re used to. These come in 1 or 2 litre capacities. Alternatively, for a few pence more, you can choose our glass bottle. This is slightly more expensive but of course it is reusable so will save you money in the long run, and is kinder to the environment.
Collect Your Milk
Insert your chosen bottle into our automated ‘Milkbot’ then deposit your money. Fresh, chilled milk will be dispensed for you to take home and enjoy. In doing so you have got yourself the freshest milk there is, taken a step towards a healthier lifestyle, done your bit for the environment and helped your local farmer – all at the same time! It really is that easy!
How to operate the Milkbot
The milk vending machine (the ‘Milkbot’) is really easy to use. Watch our quick instructional video to see Jon Appleby demonstrate how it’s done.
