Our Cows

The Loft are proud to be able to offer its guests karma free food including preparations made with milk from our very own protected cows.

As a stance against the violence of the dairy industry The Loft followed a vegan diet for the last 2 years. Now, thanks to the hard work and dedication of one family from The Loft community, we are happy to be able to offer our own karma free milk products.

Our cows are well loved, well cared for, and will live out the full duration of their lives under our loving care.

More information and photos from the cow protection project coming soon.

    Glad to hear you have your own cows and that they live good lives whilst providing milk.

    Hearing what a typical dairy cow goes through to produce milk for the masses (including artificial insemination for forced pregnancy, being separated from her calf shortly after birth so as to provide all her milk to the dairy industry, and mental trauma(often including physical due to self-inflicted harm caused by separation of mother and child separation as well as living a life like this until slaughter for the meat industry where well-being standards are poor), it is truly a treat to experience your “free range” milk. Obviously, this case is extreme and may not happen to the majority of dairy cows, but at the very least you are not fuelling an industry that allows for this exception to occur.

    Well done!

    Thank you for helping those of us who want the world to be an amazing place and live with animals who are happy… I was vegan for 2 yrs in my early 20’s and now with pregnancy and breastfeeding have ended 17yrs as a vegetarian to eat red meat with iron. We just bought a Christmas ham which I made sure was from a freedom SPCA approved farm. I want to be healthy and happy with my lifestyle choices and not be cruel to living things but choices and advice isn’t the easiest to follow in this mainstream milk drinking country.

    It is especially sad to think of the poor Mummy cows and calves being separated and yearning for each other now that I know what it is like to have a baby. I can’t believe how tired and hungry I got breastfeeding.

    We shouldn’t make other species live for ours, it is just wrong and we need to find ways of influencing farmers. A lot of them need to feed their families too and are making money the way the industry tells them they should. Finding ways to alert the public to what really goes on is very important. I wholeheartedly appreciate your effort to help the baby cows moo-wing for their mothers out in the New Zealand country side and those poor mother cows who have their calves aborted to get the farmer more money- that makes me sick. Well done!

    Hi there,
    This is amazing! So are the cows not ‘calved’ (i.e. give birth to baby cows that are then sent to slaughter)? How do you get them to continue to produce enough milk to sustain the calf and people? And is there any opportunity for people to purchase milk produced this way for their own home? I would love to hear about this.
    Kindest regards,
    Louise

    I also would like to know if I can purchase milk produced this way, and a woman from the wholefood shop Huckleberry Farms is interested too. I would really appreciate it if you’d reply to these posts.
    Thanks very much.

    Hi to you all, great people!

    I agree with Louise, I would love to buy some of that precious love milk too!

    I love milk and used to drink about a liter a day (mostly cereals… I was a student) but the dairy industry here in NZ is horrible, it’s very difficult to find “free range” milk…

    Or any other place to find some?

    All the best to you guys, and all your future endeavors!
    JP
