Goodness, Sark Needs this A new dairy for our Island
Sark is Open for Business!
"Our little island has experienced some trials in recent times. I believe that this project will stir islanders’ hearts, strengthening their resolve to return to self-sufficiency.
The plan is to create a sustainable dairy that contributes to the economy as well as the spirit of the community. A dairy that Sark can be proud of.
We need to raise a sum of £480,000 to complete the project. As you read our website please consider how you can help. Sark is up and running, it’s open for business. Our island has a history of producing the absolute highest quality dairy products - so this project is good for you and it’s good for Sark."
Goodness, Worth every penny. Here's the financial landscape.
The project will cost £480,000 of which £120,000 has already been pledged. The Trustees are seeking sponsorship for the infrastructure that will be publicly owned.
Goodness, Sark went Viral
Sark’s pursuit of a new farmer was hot news on a BBC blog and as a result the island has engaged the services of a dynamic couple, Jason & Katharine Salisbury. Currently, the couple's pedigree Guernseys at Whitegate Farm near Ipswich provide milk for their hand-made Suffolk cheeses. Jason is a prize-winning cattle breeder and Katharine is a cheesemaker and vet. The perfect pairing. They wholeheartedly believe in the future of small farming and artisanal produce.

The cream of the Channel Islands
We’re a bit of an enigma here on the island of Sark.
Cars aren’t allowed, so we travel around by bicycle or indeed a horse and carriage. If this sounds a bit old fashioned, it is. And we like it that way. Our cows only breathe clean air, and munch on grass that’s rich and lush. They produce milk so full of flavour and goodness, it’s our star ingredient: it becomes wholesome cream that’s almost too thick to pour. We then marry it with carefully selected couverture chocolate, creating a taste as pure and gorgeous as Sark itself.
You'll find us nestled between Guernsey and Jersey. We make all our chocolates by hand, in our kitchen surrounded by breathtaking vistas, coastal paths and secret bays. When are you coming?
