Fresh milk vending machine installed at North Coast dairy farm

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 idea of William and Alison, the Chestnutt family installed a milk vending machine selling milk direct from their dairy farm in Portrush, one of the first installations of this kind of machine in NI.

This allows the farm to cut out the middle men, and in turn increase the profit they make on the milk.

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.
