Our Members

Be part of the South Caernarfon Creamery family. All of our family owned member farmers who supply us with their milk also own a share in the company. Our member farmers are at the core of everything that we do. We are committed to offering sustainable, competitive terms for farmers as well as focusing on driving sales, supply and profitability.

We are:

  • Transparent in everything we do
  • Cost sensitive to assist with profitability for the Creamery; a direct benefit to member farmers
  • Reviewing products, streamlining where necessary or focusing on new product development to drive sales
  • Constantly monitoring market trends and evolving to fulfil industry requirements and consumer demands.
  • Communication focused: regular communication is sent out to members whether it’s through newsletters or the regular farmer meetings. Our annual AGM which usually takes place in July provides the opportunity for all members to get together, hear about how the Creamery has performed during the previous year and listen to an industry-based guest speaker.

Quality Standards

To maintain quality, our member farmers are audited on a regular basis in line with the requirements for the Red Tractor Scheme as well as our own internal quality standards.

Benefits with our Milk Supplier Contract

We believe that our payment schedules within our Milk Supplier contracts truly reflect the cost of production at different times of the year and are fair in terms of the constituent and volume production. Benefits and returns are weighted in favour of constituents and quality rather than members receiving fixed payments. Use our milk calculator to compare.

Farmers Words
Y Brodyr Hughes, Graig Arthur
Y Brodyr Hughes, Graig Arthur

Over the last 90 years, milking has remained the main activity and these days 185 cows are milked on the 300 acre farm. Having been cross breeding the cows for a number of years this closed herd produces excellent cheese making milk. Originally dating from 1776, the farmhouse is one of the earliest brick built houses in the area.

“We value the fact that we get a really good price for quality milk and we have a straight forward price schedule.”

Since 1928, the family have farmed at Ffosygrafel, Borth Aberystwyth. Today Martin, in partnership with his parents and brother, milk 90 cows and have a flock of 400 sheep. As the cows calve throught the year the Griffiths’s have continually opted for SCC’s level profile production scheme and have been succesfull in estimating their production of milk. Following extensive investment in a new building to house cows, a dairy and a parlour, the plan is to increase cow numbers by 50%. Martin said “having confidence in our milk purchaser helped when deciding to further invest in our dairy enterprise”
