Fresh British Goats' Milk
St Helen’s Farm fresh goats' milk is packed fresh every day to ensure it arrives on the supermarket shelf in the best possible condition.
The Natural Alternative
Goats’ milk is the natural alternative for people who are avoiding cows’ milk in their diet.
Many people tell us that goats’ milk suits them much better than cows’ milk. It can be easier to digest and even skin conditions such as eczema can be relieved by stopping the cows and switching to the goat.
Nutritionally, goats’ milk is very similar to cows’ milk, so you don’t miss out on all the vital calcium, vitamins and minerals that you expect from natural milk. Goats’ milk is just as versatile as cows’ milk and can be used in hot drinks, cereals and cooking with great results. St Helen’s Farm goats’ milk is all pasteurised and available either as whole, semi-skimmed or skimmed in 1Litre size cartons.

Our goats milk cartons are made from a renewable resource - paperboard. They have a food grade plastic coating to make them liquid-proof but they can be recycled and many local authorities now have bring bank or collection schemes for this style of beverage carton.
It makes good sense for us to use cartons rather than plastic bottles. If we were to use plastic, we would need a delivery of thousands of bottles every other day, because they are very bulky and hence are expensive to transport and store.
With paperboard, however, they arrive at our dairy as flat cartons and it means we can receive more than a month’s needs on just one vehicle delivery. So it’s kinder to the environment.
From British Family Farms
Our milk is 100% British and is sourced from St Helen's Farm and eight other family goat farms located in Yorkshire and the Midlands.
As versatile as any natural milk
Goats’ milk is just as versatile as cows’ milk and can be used in hot drinks, cereals and cooking with great results.
St Helen’s Farm goats’ milk is all pasteurised and available either as whole, semi-skimmed or skimmed in 1Litre size cartons.
Whole milk is 3.6% fat and semi-skimmed 1.6%, whilst skimmed is virtually fat free at just 0.1% fat. This is about the same level of fat as you would find in equivalent cows’ milk. The cream in St Helen’s Farm milk is lightly homogenised throughout the milk to prevent a cream layer forming at the top of the carton. This is not the case with skimmed milk, of course, which is virtually fat free- and contains no cholesterol.
