Welsh Butter, Milk and Cheese

About Us

Calon Wen is a small co-operative of organic family farms across Wales. We believe in providing exceptional organic milk, cheese and butter that taste great and are sustainably produced.

Our dedicated farmers like to keep things simple, ensuring the cows are properly looked after and graze on the fresh, clover rich pastures which have not been treated with sprays or chemicals.

We pay our farmers for the quality as well as the quantity of milk they produce, which means our farmers are not pushed towards high yielding systems.

Calon Wen is now a leading brand in Wales, supplying Tesco, Morrisons & Waitrose, and many other independent retailers across Wales. We take great pride in the organic milk, cheese and butter our cows produce, and we hope you enjoy it too. You can order milk online and receive Welsh cheeses by post .

Our Story

Dairy farmers have always wanted to sell their own milk to local people through their own company, so in 2000 that is exactly what we did. Initially there were four members, now Calon Wen includes 25 organic family farms

Our farmers receive payment for the quality as well as the quantity of milk they produce, this means we never push our farmers towards high yielding systems.

What is Organic Farming?

Organic farming is an alternative agricultural system with practices that reduce pollution, conserve water, reduce soil erosion and increases soil fertility. Farming without pesticides is also better for many birds and animals as well as people who live close to farms. Our farmers believe in looking after the soil for future generations to come.

Organic farming means no factory farming! Cows housed all year round, with no access to fresh grass or pasture has now sadly become commonplace in intensive farming systems. Organic standards ensure that organic cows are out at pasture all summer long.

Organic farming is a completely natural and sustainable farm management practice that works together with nature, rather than against it.

Why Choose Organic Milk, Cheese & Butter?

Choosing organic not only benefits the environment and animal welfare, it also contributes to a healthier lifestyle. Food experts have suggested that eating organic milk, cheese and butter reduces your body’s exposure to hormones, chemical pesticides and antibiotic resistance bacteria linked to health problems.
