Farm History

John and Susan Archer and their three children started milking Jersey cows here at New Moor Farm in 2002 after losing the original herd of Holstein Friesians to Foot and Mouth.

John and Jess & Tim Archer manage the cows, in a welfare conscious system. Our dairy cows currently graze the clover rich south facing slopes of the Tees Valley. The philosophy which we have adapted is to produce high butterfat milk from our fertile grasslands and allowing the cows to graze the pastures for at least 9 months of the year, we even measure the grass! The welfare of the cows is monitored by the Red Tractor Assurance Scheme and by the National Dairy Farm Assured Scheme. This all leads to a welfare friendly wholesome, nutritious product.
Environmental Objectives

The farm is run within the guidelines of the environmental ELS, which aims to sustain beauty and diversity of landscape, improve and extend wildlife and create new habitats.

The Jersey Herd

Newmoor Jersey Herd established in 2002 from three different herds

POYER herd – Cornwall
PITTHALL herd – Hampshire
CAMROSE herd – Jersey Island

The cows are monitored under the Premier Cattle Health Scheme whose objectives are:

To eliminate specific diseases from cattle herds.
To identify herds free from specific diseases and to provide breeding cattle of certified health status.
To monitor changes in disease status to allow timely control or preventative action to be taken.

The herd has followed strict freedom food guidelines since establishment. This is an independent organisation set up by the RSPCA to raise standards of farm animal welfare. This gives a credible assurance you can trust.
