Trink Dairy produces the best tasting milk I have ever had! Trink Farm sits overlooking both Penzance and St Ives bay and is the home of the Knowles’ family and their cows. They produce milk which is not homogenised or standardised. This gives it exceptional flavour, allows your body to digest it much better, and it makes far superior frothy coffees and milkshakes! You can buy Trink milk from lots of places around St Ives, but you can also buy it on the farm. You can combine a trip to see the cows and milking with buying milk and other lovely produce from the Trink Farm shop.
