Two dairy farmers from Suffolk will be moving to Sark in an effort to rejuvenate Sark's dairy industry.

After 30 years of business the old dairy in Sark closed its doors in 2017. The former owner had blamed a lack of farming subsidies for the decision.

After three years of having to import milk and butter from neighbouring Guernsey, people in Sark will soon be able to buy dairy produce on the island.

A worldwide search for new farmers was carried out with applications from the United States and New Zealand. Now a couple from Suffolk will be moving to Sark in 2021 to start milking.

Katharine and Jason Salisbury own a farm with Guernsey cows in East Anglia and have visited Sark multiple times.
