Excerpt form the Newsletter: Launch of Ahimsa slaughter-free milk. The Ahimsa milk revolution began on Aksaya Tritiya (Friday 6th May) at Bhaktivedanta Manor, the most auspicious day for new beginnings in the Vedic calendar. Leading figures from the organic dairy farming world met at the Manor’s New Gokul Farm and signed papers of agreement for the production of Ahimsa slaughter-free milk.

The herd is located in Kent and numbers a dozen cows at present that will produce 50,000 litres of milk a year. Ahimsa milk is produced to the highest possible Vedic standard which means cows are never slaughtered when they have reached the end of their productive life. Instead, they are retired and given sanctuary. Bulls, which in many modern dairies today are routinely killed just after birth for veal or even just destroyed, will also be allowed to live and we are exploring innovative ways of engaging them in fruitful work.

A new dedicated non-profit organisation, the Ahimsa Dairy Foundation has been established by The Lotus Trust to spearhead the project. It will work with the Commonwork Organic Dairy who supply the Organic Milk Suppliers Cooperative – a body which purchases milk from 450 organic farms across Britain. Ahimsa Milk will be available from June in North West London and parts of Hertfordshire, on a home delivery basis. It can also be delivered to other parts of London if the order is large enough. The milk will cost £2.40 a litre with doorstep delivery on subscription only. Supplies are limited, and new customers need to register early! Visit the Ahimsa website: www.ahimsamilk.org
