Arla Organic Free Range Milk
We believe that organic milk should be available to everyone.
The cows which produce our Arla Organic milk are free range, meaning they are grazed outside whenever possible.* Choosing organic also guarantees no artificial fertilisers or herbicides and additional standards of sustainability.
By choosing to buy organic milk you also guarantee that audited inspections are carried out and additional standards are met on animal welfare and sustainability.
*in comparison to conventional dairy farming based on audited organic standards of animal welfare, sustainability and biodiversity. Organic cows are outdoors for over 200 days of the year.

Our organic cows graze outdoors on grass and clover and no artificial fertilisers or herbicides are used. Instead, we rely on crop rotation, well-timed cultivation and careful selection of crop varieties to control weeds and pests, and to maintain fertility. Our system of farming encourages wildlife by avoiding manufactured chemical sprays. No GM animal feed is used and antibiotics are not used routinely.
Who owns Arla?
Arla is a farmer owned cooperative which means that as farmers, we own the business. 84 organic farmers are owners of Arla and (together with conventional farmer owners), we are passionate about what we do and proud of the milk we produce. All our milk complies fully with controlled organic standards.
At Arla, we believe in organic and are excited to share more and more organic dairy products with people in the UK everyday.
