Our sustainability journey continues: Cluny Farm's Dairy

It is not every day that you still see cows being milked by hand. Cluny Farm is special in the sense that it is becoming a self-sufficient non-profit organisation.

Cluny Farm was established to be a residential facility where intellectually disabled residents can thrive and develop skills by creating employment opportunities on the farm. Apart from the Bakery that we focused on last week that is one of our activities, I want to take you on another journey around our dairy.

The farm supplies itself with farm fresh milk on a daily basis, and has been doing so for the past 50 odd years. At the moment we only have two milking cows - fondly known as Bokkie and Milo.

Our dream is to get the Dairy back to where it was a few years ago, supplying cream and milk, yoghurt and Maas to a few outlets and to the immediate community in a farm stall. We do need some expertise though on fixing the equipment that is already there. Hopefully we can post a picture of our own products soon.

Also watch this space for a farm market planned for 2020.

With the support of locals in Sun Valley and Kyalami surrounds and the public we can make this a huge success and make the NPO Self Sustainable.

About

We will be a model organisation focused on the right to a dignified and meaningful life of every intellectually disabled adult in our care, developing them to their optimal potential. We will continue to train and mentor other organisations in our field of expertise.
