The Dairy

Camphill dairy was established in 1987, with the view to developing an enterprise that would help to sustain the organisation, and in response to a growing demand for organic natural dairy products. It provides milk for the everyday needs of the village houses and a makes range of dairy products for sale.

We have a herd of Jersey crossed with Brown Swiss dairy cows. They are grass fed on our organically grown pastures, and brought in mornings and evenings for milking. The milk is then processed in the dairy. Residents experience great therapeutic value by interacting with the cows, and learning about the cycles of nature.

Camphill dairy’s best known product is our natural yogurt, which comes in full cream and low fat varieties, both of which are free of additives or stabilisers.

We also produce cheeses, feta, labaneh and crème fraiche. Our cheeses are made with vegetarian rennet and all our products are certified Kosher and Halaal.

We have a refrigerated truck which delivers our dairy products to Cape Town on a daily basis.
