The Ahimsa Dairy Foundation is a not-for-profit company that was set up to provide entirely slaughter-free milk. Till recently, they piloted their model and worked in partnership with an organic dairy and environmental charity in Kent called Commonwork, and with OMSco – the Organic Milk Suppliers Co-operative. The inspiration behind the Ahimsa Dairy Foundation comes from the farm at Bhaktivedanta Manor, which is run by the Hare Krishna community and remains a unique experiment into what happens when dairy cows and their offspring are allowed to live productive lives instead of being sacrificed in the name of cheap milk.
Cows are retired to join their friends in the non-milking herd when they are past milking age where they spend their days eating grass and chewing the cud. You can even sponsor a cow; Ahimsa's cows’ retirement fund is built into the price of Ahimsa Slaughter-free Milk, but they are a not-for-profit company and need funds to explore innovative and productive ways of working with bulls, from ploughing the land to producing electricity and milling flour.
Their mission is to make slaughter-free milk a reality and establish sustainable dairy farms in Britain, which give people a real ethical choice.
