Isle of Sark Dairy
Jason and Katharine were chosen to become Sarks new dairy farmers in April 2020.
A global hunt was launched as the resident farmer was
retiring and the islands 500 residents plus thousands of
annual visitors needed a new supply of fresh milk and cream.
Over 80 applicants of interest came from the United States,
Cyprus and New Zealand.
The new dairy was in operation in August 2022, and milk for
the island started to flow again, supplying the on farm
vending machine, shops and guest houses. Currently the new
state of art dairy houses 15 cows in milk, plus followers. The
primary herd was imported from Guernsey, as only livestock
from the Bailiwick can be used.
Sark is one of the Channel Islands, measuring just over two

support its economy. It remains one of the only places in the
world where cars are banned, there are no paved roads, no
street lighting and almost no pollution or crime.

team in place to look after the daily running of the farm and
