Järvsö Gärdsmjölk is a small farm that produces milk and delivers it directly to the local food store and some restaurants. The milk is pasteurized on the farm and only transported 5 km from the farm. The customers buy the milk at the food store; they buy a bottle in the shop or bring one from home (the same bottle is reused multiple times).
The farm is run by Isabelle Enkvist who has a background in working / running local restaurants. She lives in the countryside on the farm where her husband grew up, and she has a great interest in animals (cows, horses, dogs…). Her latest job was at Vallens gård which is the biggest dairy farm in Scandinavia. At Vallens gård their 900 cows are milked by robots, but Isabelle wanted to run a small-scale farm with benefits like knowing every cow by name and not pushing their milk production too much, resulting is top quality milk. She has all the needed skills when it comes to milking and han
Locally produced fresh milk.
