Fresh and Local

Yester Farm Dairies Limited is a family run, artisan dairy producing a full range of top quality dairy products on our family farm, Yester Mains, just outside the picturesque East Lothian village of Gifford. The farm is just 25 miles south of Edinburgh and one of only two dairy farms remaining in East Lothian. We pride ourselves on our fresh and local credentials. As a family business we are approachable and our focus is on providing a friendly and flexible service. We are passionate about our products from Farm to Fridge 


Our Vision:-


  • To be a successful, socially responsible and profitable family business;
  • Our brand to be synonymous with premium quality dairy products and great service;
  • Our customers to be proud to buy our brand;
  • Our people to be proud to work here; and
  • An ethos of continuous improvement in everything we do.


Wholesale and Doorstep

We deliver 6 days a week to a range of wholesale customers from large wholesalers UK-wide to local hotels, restaurants, cafes, delicatessens, convenience stores, schools and nursing homes. We also specialise in doorstep deliveries, supplying farm fresh milk to hundreds of homes in Edinburgh, Mid and East Lothian mainly via franchisee milkmen.



Our own farm fresh Scottish milk is the basis for our great tasting milk, cream, traditional mozzarella, soft cheese, cottage cheese and cultured creams such as creme fraiche, sour cream and yogurt. We also supply all associated products ranging from Scottish yoghurts, cheddar, butter and eggs.


We were delighted to have won the East Lothian Food & Drink Innovation Award 2015 for our traditional pizza mozzarella.
