Griffin: A tribute to our herdsmen
Paul Griffin, partner at Briddlesford, said,

“We are so proud of our cows. Doing so well amongst the best Guernsey cow breeders in the country, is a tribute to our herdsmen.  We care for all our cows at the highest standard of welfare management. 

“Anyone visiting our farm, shop and Bluebells café can see our cows daily as they walk back from the milking parlour to the pastures.”
