Gundenham Dairy

The first generation of the Cottrell family moved to Gundenham, on the outskirts of Wellington, in the 1920’s, to farm this beautiful part of Somerset.  Adopting traditional farming methods to hand produce rich, creamy milk. During the early 1930’s, Tom Cottrell started selling his milk direct to households, ladling the milk from a churn, which was carried in the back of a pony and trap. From these beginnings a thriving family business has grown.

The third and fourth generation of Cottrell’s are now farming Gundenham, with all the passion and care that comes with a deep affinity to the land.  The majority of our 500 acres of prime Somerset pastureland is given over to providing food and grazing for our herd of around 350 Holstein Friesians.  Our animal husbandry and traditional practices ensure that the quality of our homegrown milk, cream and potatoes are never compromised.
