    Following the closure of a large intensive dairy farm on the Chettle Estate, Alice Favre, the owner, is offering an opportunity for a forward-thinking and passionate farmer to establish a micro dairy to produce milk and dairy products for the village and local area.

    The village shop currently sells 50 litres a week of refillable milk at £1.20 a litre for non-organic milk (from Meggy Moo’s Dairy). It also sell another 100-150 litres of milk per week in plastic bottles (some organic, some not). The Castleman Hotel & Restaurant could also buy milk direct from the dairy, it sells 200-250 dinners a week plus 50-ish breakfasts. This is a great opportunity with a direct route to market.

    Have a look on our Instagram page to get a flavour of Chettle.

    For the full proposal and information document, please email

    I look forward to hearing back from some of you.
