During the 1940s, Herbert and Nora Dale started farming on a 9-acre smallholding called Holly Bank. They hand-milked 18 cows, selling some of the milk to a local milk round. They also kept pigs, free-range hens and grew potatoes.
After a happy decade on their smallholding, the Dale family decided to specialise in dairy cows and went on to buy Congleton Farm. They purchased their first land in 1979 at Hare Lane which grew throughout the 80s and was used to feed the home farm. Both areas remain in the business today.
Now with over 50 years of experience under their belt, the Dale family and Management Teams continue to invest in the business. Our desire has always been to be technically excellent farmers.
We are committed to travelling and talking to farmers all over the world, seeking out the best practises and new ideas. Dale Farming will always look for something to improve, to produce the best quality milk we can and preparing the business for the next generations!
