Storytime with Jonny and Jelly

At Arla we’re passionate about dairy and the goodness and nutrition it provides. We’re also passionate about teaching children (and grown-ups) about farming and how milk gets from the farm to your fridge. We believe understanding this enables you to make good food choices throughout your life.

Our research shows that 1 in 5 school children don’t understand where food, including milk, comes from[i], so to address this we’ve made a special storybook about the life of a real dairy farmer and his cow.

It provides a fun and engaging way to introduce them to how dairy farming works, and the actions our farmers are taking to create a more sustainable future.

This delightful tale was written with Key Stage 1 and 2 children in mind and is free to download.

As part of our commitment to supporting children’s understanding and access to dairy nutrition we will provide 15,000 healthy breakfasts to help feed vulnerable children in the UK. For every download of the book Arla will donate to Magic Breakfast, our charity partner whose aim is to ensure that no child is too hungry to learn.[ii]

Meet Jelly the inquisitive cow and her farmer, Jonny, and follow them on their adventure around the farm. Jelly wants to know more about what goes on in the everyday life of a dairy farm, and we get to go along too.

We’ll discover more about how Jonny the farmer collects the milk from his cows and the journey it goes on to get from his farm to your fridge, including some of the exciting things that Jelly sees along the way.

Based on the adventures of real life Arla farmer, Jonny and his cow Jelly, the book takes children into the farmyard and explores how milk gets from farm to fridge.

Watch as he tells Helen Skelton, all about how he is helping inspire young children to learn more about their food and what happens on a dairy farm!
