Since 1919, Clóna Fresh Milk has been part of daily life in Cork. It all began at the Hurley family farm in Clonakilty. From here, fresh milk was carried into the town dairy. Twice daily the local community would gather to collect fresh milk from the Hurley churns. Later in 1955, Charlie Hurley began providing the local community with pasteurised milk – this was the first-ever bottled pasteurised milk available in Munster.
By the late 1980s, milk from Hurley’s farm had become known as Clóna Milk and the brand, Clóna Fresh Milk, was born. Over ninety years on, the heritage and tradition of Cork dairy farming is continued in the Clóna products that you find in your local retailer today.
