Happy Cow Milk Bottle

Finally! Milk without the guilt.

We’re the little milk company that could… adding kindness, caring and fairness to every litre of milk.

And while we were at it, we subtracted the plastic.

Renewable Packaging

You‘re one step closer to removing single-use plastic from your household.

Bring your own reusable container and fill it at any of our milk dispensers.

The milk is supplied by your local farmer and they get paid every time you make a purchase.

The result – 100% reusable packaging and zero plastic!

Happy Cow Retail Setup

Sustainable milk is local milk.

Local farmers supplying their local community is the only way reusable packaging can work. 

Local supply also means less travel and fewer emissions.

Our innovative “milk factory in a box” allows any farmer to sell safe, pasteurised milk to their local community.

Cow and Calf

All our calves stay with their mothers. 

Calves drink when they want to. We take whatever milk is left. When the calves are old enough, mother and calf go their separate ways – just like they would in nature.

No heartbreak, no mourning. 

Just happy cows and calves living as they naturally would.

Sustainable agriculture

You want to know that your milk was produced in a way that doesn’t damage the environment.

Sustainable farming is about balance – animals, plants and crops working together in a mutually beneficial way.

You can use the Happy Cow Milk app to find out exactly what your local farmer is doing to maintain this balance.

Happy Cow Cargo Bike

We’re democratising dairy

With the Happy Cow system, anyone can become a local milk retailer – cafes, schools, workplaces and individuals. 

Our systems allows for home delivery, farmers’ markets and more traditional retail.

The little milk company that could

Happy Cow Milk is proud to be 100% crowd-funded and owned. Glen Herud started in 2014 with a vision for kinder, greener, fairer dairy. It’s taken persistence and imagination, but Happy Cow Milk has completely re-invented dairy and is ready to scale it up around New Zealand and beyond.
