Brown Cow Organics Live Organic Natural Yoghurt Awarded Soil Association Gold And Dairy Category Winner Awards In Organic Food Awards 2013
The Organic Food Awards blow the trumpet for the best of the best; producers who go that extra mile showcasing the UK’s best organic food produced with passion, creativity and care. Brown Cow Organics are thrilled to be a double winner this year – the judges described the Brown Cow Organics live organic award winning Natural Yoghurt as “Rich, tangy, mouth-watering, keeps giving flavour, nice colour, not too thick.”
The Soil Association commented “Brown Cow Organics have shown a dedicated ethos to animal welfare, provenance of a product that supports local employment and a dedication to their local environment and most importantly supports a small family run farm.”
The Awards were announced as part of Organic September – the UK’s biggest celebration of all things organic. Monty Don, President of the Soil Association said: “The Organic Food Awards celebrate not only great tasting food and drink but also the inspiring stories behind it. This is food that has been produced to the highest welfare and environmental standards by people who care passionately about what they do.”
Brown Cow Organics yoghurts are produced from organic A2 beta casein protein rich whole milk (which is only 5% fat) from their own Guernsey herd, all born raised and grazed on their 480 farm organic acres. Nutrition of the herd is paramount and the farm analyses the soil in every field and each crop grown, constantly monitoring the cows diet. Consequently, the yoghurt is nutritionally outstanding being rich in Omega 3s and other trace elements (it is very high in Zinc and Selenium.) Only natural and organic ingredients without artificial colours, additives or preservatives (and GMO free) go into the making of their award winning yoghurt.
A small team of dedicated local people hand make the yoghurt which is then hand poured into recyclable, re-usable pots. This artisan process produces naturally thick rich yoghurt without using emulsifiers, stabilisers or thickeners. The yoghurt is never homogenised or pumped as this would destroy its molecular makeup and natural creaminess.
Judith Freane owner of Brown Cow Organics was as pleased as her renowned ‘Happy Cows’ and said when this year’s results were announced“these awards are so important to us and our customers, they differentiate our products and provide consumers with a reliable seal of approval – based not only upon great taste – but recognition of our animal welfare and environmental ethos too; it confirms they can trust they are purchasing a quality product.”
It’s a been a splendid year of recognition from the Soil Association for Brown Cow Organics; during their annual Soil Association assessment this year the inspector commented to Judith “The animal welfare standard on this farm is excellent and the best I have ever seen in my fifteen years as a Soil Association Inspector.”
