Connage Highland Dairy is a traditional, family-owned, fully organic business, situated on the family farm at Ardersier. The farm was started by father Hamish Clark and continues to be in the family.
Connage Highland Dairy is a family business in the true sense of the word, owned and managed by brothers Callum and Cameron and their wives Jill and Eileen. Callum and Jill manage the cheese side of the business producing multi award winning cheese. Cameron and Eileen undertake the work on the farm themselves, breeding and managing the dairy herd to milking them. The Connage organic dairy herd comprises 150 cows, mostly Holstein Friesian with Jersey crosses and Norwegian Reds. The cattle graze on the luscious clover pastures around the dairy and along the shores of the Moray Firth.
A state-of-the-art cheese dairy was constructed and since January 2006, have been using traditional techniques to produce a range of organic, handcrafted vegetarian cheeses. All products are fully traceable and excellent quality controls from ‘cow to cheese’. Assurances can be given for the highest standard of animal welfare and care for our cows, continuing the attention to detail into our cheeses.
