Milk At The Gate
Mike & Chris Richmond launched this great new Farmgate Milk Service in the spring of 2018.
The desire to make available to the public, the full cream milk that farming families enjoy everyday, and restore something many of us took for granted, not that long ago, became more than just a good idea for Mike & Chris. Admittedly…….to get some, you have to go to their gate, just up Pokuru Rd in Te Awamutu, and over the bridge.
But…this kind of milk is about lifestyle. The kind of lifestyle that leaves happy memories in our kid’s lives, and sumptuous flat whites for your visitors!
Behind that aspiration, a solid structure needed to be in place. Good machinery, good hygene, good organisation and long service lives. Becoming part of their team to achieve this was an easy decision! Armed with years of experience installing Acraflex, we were confident we could deliver a significant win for them, every time they milked cows!

Post Script: It’s August 2nd, 2019. I’ve just spoken to Mike and learnt that Hump Bridge Milk is one year old in two days time.
So I asked him “What’s the most important thing you’ve learnt, one year in?”
He replied “Easy. Top of the list is cleanliness. For that, you have to have a structured routine”
For over 30years, the Acraflex Dairy Wall Coating System has been an integral part of the cleaning routines carried out every day on hundreds of New Zealand farms.
