Ruminating on seaweed
Brades Farm Barista Milk started life as an innovation to prove there was a market for a fully traceable milk back to the farm that was of the highest quality available to baristas, performed and tasted better than any milk on the market, with animal welfare and farm management at the forefront of what we stood for. Looking at reducing methane emissions goes hand in hand with this. Back in 2017, Joe started to look at a form of Seaweed called Asparagopsis Taxiformis as a potential means, however could see it wasn't an option as a current solution. Through this we were introduced to Mootral - A natural product developed from garlic and citrus that had been in development for over a decade and was proving impressive scientific results at reducing methane in cows, once fed it sees results immediately, the health of the herd showed positive benefits and was available to test in a commercial environment, which we did and have been ever since!
