AN organic dairy farm has invested in new equipment to keep pace with demand for its produce.

Two 1,600 litre cream tanks have been installed at Acorn Dairy in County Durham, which produces 50,000 litres of milk a week from its 370 Friesian cross Shorthorns at farms in Archdeacon Newton, Darlington and Spennithorne, near Leyburn.

The dairy says it has three times the normal number of customers for skimmed milk as the industry average so it sells more cream separately.

The dairy supplies organic produce to Morrisons and the supermarket chain is now planning to roll out Acorn branded products across the North East.
