Stafford ‘liquid gold’ is cream of the crop in the International Cheese & Dairy Awards

The Wright Family Dairy, which grazes its herd of pedigree Jersey cattle on lush parkland at Tixall, just a few miles from Stafford town centre, has won a coveted award at the International Cheese & Dairy Awards.

The business took the Gold award in the hotly contested Whole Milk class at the awards, which took place at Staffordshire County Show Ground last week alongside the Love Cheese Live Awards.

The Wright family have been farming in Staffordshire for over 50 years, starting their now 200-strong ‘Fourcrosses’ herd from just two calves and is a true family affair – Helen and Andrew Wright run the farm alongside son Matthew, his wife Lowri and their two young children, who look set to inherit the family passion for farming. The herd has enjoyed enviable success in agricultural show rings at county and National level, and their notable breeding has even led to some cows being sold overseas as far as Dubai. The milk won praise for its ‘creamy texture and flavour’ and for being ‘very fresh’. Apparently, it even made the judge go ‘Ohh!’.

Lowri Wright says:

“We are over the moon to win this award! This new venture of ours has been two years of hard work and dedication by the family and team of staff. We know our milk is deliciously creamy & tasty, which has been backed up by feedback from our customers, but it means a lot to have it recognised by the judges at these awards.”

Staffordshire milk lovers can get a taste of The Wright Family Dairy milk from the ‘Taste the Milk’ vending machine at Lower Drayton Farm, just outside Penkridge, which offers fresh, pasteurised milk by the bottle and a tasty selection of milkshake flavours by the bottle or cup. It is open daily from 8am – 8pm. Find out more about The Wright Family Dairy here: The Wright Family Dairy
