No Chemicals, No Additives: Dairy Farmers Go Simple
These New Zealand dairy farmers, who started their own operation, wanted to do things a bit differently. The Sproulls use no chemicals, growth hormones, or antibiotics on their cows. Their comparatively small farm is kept alive by customers through word-of-mouth, and their animals are healthy and happy.
Daniel and Jenny Sproull see themselves as conventional - farming the way it was before all the chemicals were introduced.
They are passionate about producing high-quality milk the way it's meant to be and hope people will always have the right to choose to buy it before it gets "homogenised, pasteurised and buggerised", says Mr Sproull, laughing.
