The search for a farmer to take over a new dairy started in 2018, after the Channel Island’s existing business closed.
Jason Salisbury and his wife Katherine agreed to take over the new dairy in October 2019.
The couple moved over from their Suffolk farm and cheese-making business earlier this year, and 15 cows have now been transported from Guernsey.
Mr Salisbury described the arrival of the new herd as a “momentous occasion”.
“It’s quite emotional really, it’s quite exciting that three years down the line of this project being started off that my cows are now on the island”, he said.
The cattle, which must be the Guernsey breed by law, were transported on the island’s cargo boat on Wednesday morning.
Mr Salisbury explained the dairy herd had been acquired from a woman on Guernsey, and consisted of 11 milking cows and four calves.
He said the “beautiful” Sark grass would help make sure the herd were well fed: “There’s fabulous clovers in them, wild flowers and those flavours will come through in the milk.”
Mr Salisbury said the first milking of the herd would take place on Wednesday evening in the newly-built dairy.
“I think it’s lovely that we’ll be able to get people, especially visitors, coming where they want something before they go out in the evening.”
