Getting started with a milk vending machine

Past Event

Wed, 14 July 2021

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

If you’re thinking about selling milk directly to customers, join us for a webinar with Jonny Crickmore who set up the first raw milk vending machine of its type in the UK.

He'll share his dos and don’ts and some of the things he wishes he’d known before installing a vending machine.

Jonny is the third generation at Fen Farm, chairman of the Raw Milk Producers Association and vice chairman of the Specialist Cheesemakers Association.

He and his wife added a pioneering cheese and butter making business to the original farm with a focus on making exceptional artisan products. They now help other dairy farmers on their diversification journey.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Things to consider before setting up your own vending machine
  • What to expect and the process for setting up a direct sales business
  • Who are the most important people to work with
  • What diversification could mean for your wider farm business
  • Financial implications of direct sales, including milk vending machine costs

If you're interested in investing in a milk vending machine or selling produce direct to consumers then make sure you book your place.
