Järvsö gårdsmjölk started its own production and distribution of milk in 2019. So far, it has been a success.
Järvsö gårdsmjölk and Göras Landbruk are run by Isabell Enkvist and Jon Görgård. Already last year, when they started the small-scale dairy, they received an award as Producer of the Year by the association MatVärdan in Gävleborg. The justification stated:
– They go against the flow and invest in milk production. Jon Görgård, who is the 13th generation in a straight line, runs together with Isabelle Enkvist, one of Järvsö’s oldest farms, where they produce both milk and meat. They have found a new way to satisfy the market for fresh milk – via a milk vending machine at ICA Järvsö, where you can buy milk under the Järvsö Gårdsmjölk-label.
In addition to the milk sale from the vending machine (which is currently out of order due to a fire in the ICA-store), the couple sells milk to local restaurants and ice cream factories. They achieve a milk price between 10 to 20 SEK per liters. The company states that they expect profitability in dairy production already next year.
