A DROITWICH mother and son have hit the supermarket shelves this month as the faces of St Helen's Farm goats' milk.

Claire and Thomas Buckland will appear on 600,000 cartons of milk and take a starring role in fridges across the UK for the popular Yorkshire-based company.

Mum Claire switched to goats' milk when she found she could not drink cows' milk and discovered her son Thomas shared her intolerance.

Claire said: "Thomas was sick every time I gave him cows’ milk or yogurt. It was quite worrying until we figured out what it was.

"We tried rice milk and soya milk but I wanted Thomas to have ‘proper’ milk rather than a milk substitute, particularly as a young child.

"The taste is so fresh. We are big fans, and tell all our friends and family to drink it," she added.

The inability to drink cows' milk is one of the most common causes of intolerance in the UK and can lead to symptoms such as

eczema, asthma, bloatedness, constipation; digestive discomfort and catarrh.

But mild-tasting goats' milk can be a good alternative for people who cannot drink cows' with many sufferers seeing a reduction or disappearance of their symptoms altogether.

And as a result of their support for the brand, Claire and Thomas will be the faces of the company which is based at Seaton Rose near York and also produces yogurts, cheese, butter and cream all made from goats’ milk.

Mike Hind from St Helen’s Farm said: "We get lots of requests from our customers to appear on our cartons – and we love reading about their reasons for switching to goats’ milk – whether it’s for health reasons or because they simply love the taste."
