THE Tom Parker Creamery in the Meon Valley is amongst the winners of the 2019 International Cheese and Dairy Awards winning a Gold award for their Salted Caramel flavoured milk.

Held in Nantwich, in Cheshire, the International Cheese and Dairy Awards is the world’s biggest cheese show attracting more than 5,000 entries across 300 categories and 27 countries.

Judged by 240 discerning judges, the win by Tom Parker Creamery is made all the more impressive by the fact that it’s the first year that the company has participated in the awards.

Jack Martin, founder of Tom Parker Creamery, said: “To me and many within the industry, these awards are seen as the ‘Oscars’ of dairy and we’re absolutely delighted that our delicious Salted Caramel flavoured milk has been recognized for its high quality and great taste.”

Delivering the pleasure of natural, high-quality dairy to people without compromise, Tom Parker Creamery produces a range of naturally flavoured milks, the way they should be, using milk from their grass-fed cows from their family farm at Beaconhill Farm, near Exton.

The range of flavoured milks are available via Milk & More for £2 for a 500ml bottle. Choose from Salted Caramel, wickedly delicious Chocolate and wonderfully creamy Iced Coffee variety.

The creamery began in 1921 with just 14 cows and Tom Parker, otherwise known as the Guv’nor, delivering milk by horse and cart.

As word spread of the milk he was selling, his fleet of beautifully painted horse-drawn milk floats became a regular sight in the local area.

Four generations on and now run by the Guv’nor’s great grandson, Jack Martin, the promise still rings true - never compromise on taste or quality.

Their cows are free-range and grass-fed on their family farm in the beautiful Meon Valley, Hampshire. Since the beginning, Tom Parker Creamery have always believed that happy cows make the best milk which is why they ensure their ‘girls’ are kept in the best condition possible and are outside for nine months of the year (50 per cent longer than free-range regulations state).

This approach may mean there’s less milk to sell, but for them it’s all about quality not quantity.

The product is now available to buy nationally.
