Gay van Hasselt started what is now known as Gay’s Guernsey Dairy in 1990 when she started milking three cows in a stone kraal. She soon discovered that there was a demand for fresh milk in the community and started selling to a few customers who would arrive with their empty containers and get their daily supply of milk and later cheeses and yoghurt.
Situated in Prince Albert in the Karoo, the dairy has become an institution and a meeting point for locals and visitors to come together, enjoy fabulous handmade dairy products and get a real taste of farm life. All the products are made using full-cream, raw guernsey milk from the Van Hasselt’s own herd of cows. Gay believes that the core of her success lies in the quality of the raw milk that they use, making the products deliciously creamy, and steeped in natural flavour. The family and staff of Gay’s Dairy place a huge emphasis on their herd of free ranging, happy Guernsey cows.
Gay’s persistence has paid off, and after winning numerous international awards in London, Dublin and France, her cheeses are now known across the country and the world.
