Dairy Farms in Sudbury

When we buy milk today, we are most likely to get it from a supermarket, in a plastic bottle. But how much do we know about where our milk comes from, and the stories behind the dairy farming business, especially when this was an activity carried out by people in our local area?
People have kept cows (and other animals) to provide milk for thousands of years, but it was only in the 19th century that some farms began to specialise in milk production. This article looks at the history of three such farms in the Sudbury district of Brent, and at some of the changes in delivering milk from the farms so that we can enjoy it as a drink, or on our breakfast cereal, in our homes.
