About Trewithen Dairy:

Trewithen Dairy is owned and run by the Clarke family, who have owned Greymare Farm in the Glynn Valley since 1976 and started crafting dairy products there in March 1994.

As the business has grown, so has their family. It’s not just the Clarke family that do all they can to make their delicious Cornish dairy products what they are, it’s their colleagues, farmers, and of course, customers too.

In the early days, the Clarkes had their own herd. Bill and Rachel would bottle the milk once the children were in bed and deliver it early the next morning.

They cooked the clotted cream themselves, in open trays and potted it by hand. Their customers loved all of this Cornish dairy goodness and soon the Clarkes were supplying more and more happy customers.

By 2001, the milk bottling and cream-making side of the business had become so successful that the family made the brave decision to sell their herd and moved full-time into producing milk, cream, butter and, more recently, yoghurt.

Bill and Rachel’s sons Francis and George now run the dairy day to day with key roles as Managing Director and Production Director respectively, with more than 250 highly valued employees and plenty of continued input from Bill and Rachel.
