We are the UK representatives for DF Italia milk vending machines. Here's a little bit about what we do and how we are helping other dairy farmers around the UK to get a fair price for their milk:
We are brothers Jonny and George Crickmore. Our family have been farming the beautiful Waveney River Valley in Suffolk for over 80 years. We have a 300 strong milking herd of Montbeliarde cows, a beef herd and a small amount of arable land. We also make raw cheese, butter and cream on the farm. We are proud to sell our own beautiful raw milk direct to customers from the farm gate, via our own DF Italia milk vending machine. We'd love to tell you our story...just click here.
We Believe that DF Italia milk vending machines are the best in the world. Not only are they hygienic and simple to use, they provide dairy farmers with a vehicle for safely and easily selling their milk direct to the public...and getting a fair price for it.
In a climate where the only real certainty for dairy farmers in financial uncertainty, we believe this is a vital piece of kit for the dairy industry . The milk vending machine is already making the difference for many farmers (including us!) between getting out of dairy farming entirely, or taking control of their own milk price and growing a healthy, profitable business.
Milk vending machines are a quick and simple way to begin diversification of your dairy farm business. They provide instant cash flow, require minimum labour and output from you and when located carefully the payback on your initial investment can be very fast. They can also make a great add-on to an already well established dairy diversification, such as a farm shop or open farm.
Our machines can be located anywhere, can hold either raw or pasteurised milk and are easy to clean and service. They can be tailored with a wide variety of features to suit your business and they can even text you when they need a refill!
