Fresh milk vending machine installed at North Coast dairy farm
F

Imagine, instead of selecting a packet of crisps or a soft drink from a vending machine, that you could select a fresh pint of milk? Well that’s the reality at a farm near Portrush.

The venture has been a huge success since opening in the past few days, as more and more people are using local producers for their everyday needs, a concept made more popular in no small part due to the COVID-19 circumstances.
