Cup North, a major coffee festival outside of London will be the first coffee festival to use Free Range Milk across the event. The milk bearing the Free Range Dairy Pasture Promise label will be supplied by Stephenson’s Food & Dairy from Morecambe in Lancashire.
Manchester is seeing a huge rise in coffee culture and whilst people enjoy choosing different coffee beans very little thought has been given to the milk until now.
Free Range Dairy Pasture Promise milk comes from cows that are seasonally grazed on pasture for at least six months and guarantees the milk is not from intensive zero grazed herds. This means that like coffee, the milk also has seasonal variations depending on the weather and grass growing seasons. A new and unique experience for coffee lovers attending the festival in Manchester.
Chris Stephenson of Stephenson’s Food & Dairy said
“This is such a great opportunity to offer something new for the coffee scene in the North and especially Manchester that helps local farmers, gives cows the freedom to graze and supports a sustainable farming system. In the same way many farmers growing coffee beans are supported by Fairtrade or Rainforest Alliance, we see the Free Range Dairy Pasture Promise label as a great way to support our dairy farmers.”
The festival is a showcase for some of the best independent coffee shops, roasteries and importers from across the north over two days of tastings, demonstrations and talks this weekend. The festival is held at The Victoria Warehouse Hotel, Old Trafford M17 1AB on Sat 7th: 10am-6pm and Sun 8th: 10am-5pm.
Chris Stepehenson and Neil Darwent from Free Range Dairy will be at Cup North coffee festival for both days.
