Mossgiel Farm is an organic dairy farm, shop and cafe. They have recently won a tender to work with East Ayrshire Council to supply ALL THE SCHOOLS in the area with 100% Organic, 100% waste free milk from 100% Scottish Organic Family Farms AND deliver it all in 100% ELECTRIC vans! This is in spite of the pressure that the pandemic has put on the industry. This means that East Ayrshire Council and Mossgiel Organic Farm may just have created the benchmark in school milk.
7 years ago the owners stood outside Morrisons in Kilmarnock with other farmers protesting the collapse of dairy market prices and that family farms were going to the wall. Now, they're announcing a huge change in Scottish dairy - and every single pint of it is thanks to their incredible supporters who've stuck with them the whole way. The tender was launched this year and they applied. They knew their Mossgiel designed vending machines could drive down not just waste but costs too. They could supply an overall price that averaged out the entire milk supply to supply only organic and all without a cost to dispose of Single Use plastic! They had already been testing 100% electric vans and found their limits - so they understand how to deliver to schools safely, hygenically and on time; and all without tailpipe emissions!
