The Dairy

We process milk from our world famous Guernsey cows to produce a range of premium quality dairy products.

We receive 8 million litres of raw milk a year and use it to produce and sell:

6 million litres of milk

200,000 kg of world class Guernsey butter and

24,000 kg of award winning cheese

Every. Year. 

We also make rich dairy cream and four delicious flavours of Guernsey ice-cream.

The Guernsey Dairy is owned and operated by the States of Guernsey and The States Trading Supervisory Board has political responsibility for the Dairy. 

Our vision is to secure the sustainability of the local dairy industry and farmed countryside, by the processing of milk through an efficient, profitable facility employing best commercial practices, in the long term best interest of Islanders.

The local farming industry, our Guernsey breed and the Guernsey Dairy are closely linked. That's why we've developed our latest business plan alongside the Guernsey Farming Association and the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure and aligns with the Guernsey Dairy Industry Strategy and the Guernsey Biodiversity Strategy.
