A dairy farm near Shifnal is offering customers the chance to go plastic-free. Chathams have been caring for cows on their award-winning family farm in the Shropshire countryside at Brockton, near Shifnal, for three generations.
James Chatham explains, “Customers can now experience Shropshire’s first organic milk vending machine. You can purchase a bespoke reusable glass bottle and fill it straight from the machine
“My dad was inspired to convert to organic in 1998 and I’ve followed this on. I feel our new vending machine really fits in with our family farming ethos. I’m thrilled that reducing plastic waste is a great advantage of this venture, along with helping to reduce food miles...”
The Dairy Hut is open daily from 6.30am until 8pm and you can also buy organic cheese and free-range eggs from a second vending machine; find Chatham’s Organic Dairy on Facebook.
