What can we tell you about dairy farming, other than the fact it’s in our blood! There isn’t any job we’d rather do – we are reminded daily how lucky we are to earn a living this way. For example, as we raise our three girls, the experiences they each have, the opportunities for their friends to visit and help, the connection for us all, with land and nature.
Chris manages the farm and Rachel the dairy! Who have a valuable team with Matt, Jack and Jowan out on the farm and the Dairy Fairies being Sarah, Amy and Rob who are responsible for processing the milk.
Sadly Robert Knowles, Chris’s Dad, died suddenly on the farm in August 2018 still working, doing what he loved working on the farm, a place where he loved to be. He brought a wealth of experience and wisdom to the family’s decision making and will be sorely missed by us all at Trink.
Chris’s Grandparents on both sides of the family were dairy farmers and his Great Grandparents took their milk to St Ives to be sold which would have been over 100 years ago, we wonder what they would think if they could see us now!
