Fresh milk without lactose Arpon

Arpon launches its new range of "No lactose" fresh milk


In order to meet the needs of lactose intolerant consumers, Arpon has launched its new range of

Fresh milk semi-skimmed lactose-free

To learn about this new product, Arpon will deliver a free sample to all its customers paid to in-home service, in the next few days.

Lactose is a sugar that is present in all mammalian milk: cow, goat, sheep and human, and which can also be found in many prepared foods. It is called sugar of milk, natural disaccharide composed of glucose and galactose.

Lactose intolerance means there is not enough of the enzyme (lactase) to break any lactose consumed in the small intestine. Partially digested or undigested lactose will go down in the large intestine and is there that it is broken down by bacteria in the large intestine, generating substances from disposal and fatty acids, which cause all their symptoms: headaches, bloating, diarrhea, etc. It is also known as milk intolerance or intolerance to dairy products, lactase deficiency.

We are confident that this new product is to the liking of all those consumers who suffer from lactose intolerance.

COMFORT & SLOW COW MiLK: happy cows of Arpon


Did you know a dealer can get milk just to your home, first thing in the morning, which live in the Centre or on the outskirts of the village? Yes, Yes, as in the films (American)! Every day, Arpon, the estate of Villanueva del Pardillo of Hans-Peter and Rachel, where 1,400 Frisian cows, living at ease and stress-free distributed fresh milk to more than 5,000 homes in the community of Madrid. The recipe for your success? The "Cow Comfort". This test? Both the family business and founder marriage just celebrate their respective golden wedding anniversary. Petit tribute to livestock more slow moment.

In 1960, Hans-Peter Sieber left his native Switzerland to work as an interpreter in the Costa Brava but love knocked at the door of your destination to meet his current wife of Cantabrian origins, Raquel Quijano. Shortly after, the happy couple decided to settle in no man's land to fulfill his dream: founding their own livestock. Nothing more moving to Villanueva del Pardillo, bought their first 30 cows in... Canada. Yes, they made them to travel thousands of miles aboard a plane of the company Iberia before no doubt the bewilderment of the crew. Since then, Arpon family has grown and much but in a methodical, almost philosophical manner, because, for its owners, a happy cow produces better milk. And I attest that this breeding cows live "as authentic Queens" thanks to the "Cow Comfort" method.

It is a set of techniques that favor well-being and tranquility of the animals in order to increase not only the quality of the milk but also its production. Then, on this farm, all cows are born and breed in the farm with the help of artificial insemination; they have enough space to walk; and they sleep in beds of water or rubber blended with pillows to rest your head. "The surface of the bed has to be padded so that the knees of cows will not suffer to the lie" explains Nicolás Sieber, the son of the owners, who grew up on the farm and knows very well the nature of these animals. "If you don't do them case, cows are curious, come to your attention. If you are where you come, frightened".

As for milk, cows are milked three times a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year (+ 1 every 4). During the time of milking, they listen to classical music, and not by any composer, it seems that the music of Mozart is that like... "It is said that this technique is used since, in the 19th century, monks of Brittany discovered that cows gave more milk during the mass, as they heard the music that came from the choir of the Church," says Nicolas.

Finally, in summer, sprinklers and fans regulate the temperature in the feeders and the cobertizos-dormitorios areas because it is proven that the cattle begin to suffer if the thermometer marked more than 22 degrees Celsius. And to finish, they themselves may be a masajito with a power brush that rotates automatically when the cow approached it... are giving Me envy! Aysss, who was a cow! In Arpon, clear.

Good harvest of corn... good food for our cows.


Corn planting. Arpon
Corn planting. Arpon

At the end of the month of may, after harvesting the barley, we started planting corn on the grounds of irrigated Arpon has to do this. Today, two months later and seeing as sprouting cultivation can ensure that the harvest will be good.

A good harvest of maize is important because it depends much of our cows feeding in the coming months. This crop will begin to harvest in September and will serve as a forage food from our dairy cows.

One of the advantages of Arpon is the have 160 hectares (intended for maize irrigation 25) to cultivate their own fodder and thus:

  1. It ensures that the quality of farmed products is optimal because it directly affects the health of the cows and the taste of her milk.
  2. The farm allows independent oscillations of fodder prices in the domestic market. These prices have two years to increase by strong external demand and the production costs of many Spanish farms are unworkable to avocando them to a close.

The photos that we show in this publication have been taken yesterday afternoon and this morning.




Ibiza has dairy

Source: - date: 01-05-2013

A few days ago the website of Ibiza "", "The field of Ibiza" section published an article under the title of "The dairy esta de Vuelta" where in addition to praise this profession, he mentioned to Arpon and therefore, we wanted to share with you this article, fully playing its contents:

DairySeveral decades ago, expansion in Western supermarkets, hypermarkets and small neighborhood stores, as well as the change of habits in many homes led to the edge of the disappearance to the popular figure of the dairy. However, for the last several years, cities and towns of the United States, United Kingdom and other European countries, including Spain, attending a progressive expansion of the delivery service of milk and other dairy products and fresh at home. Who doesn't remember endearing figure of the milkman carrying fresh milk to houses? The return of the milkman's life should be framed in the growing trend in our society to return to the traditional, natural and simple and the consumption of fresh and local products.

Today, almost three thousand dairy distributed each morning nearly one million liters in the households of the United Kingdom. It should be recalled as the dairy carries among the British for more than 150 years and has always enjoyed an enormous sympathy and popularity. In Spain, are already several companies which have established dairy home delivery services, such as the well-known Arpon company that distributes milk and other products with great success dairy in the community of Madrid.

The freshness of the milk, milked and packaged the same day and distributed maximum a day later, is the aspect most valued by customers of such services. Very similar to the earlier, milk with an unmistakable flavour but with the guarantee of health that gives its pasteurization (process by which natural milk is subjected to the action of the heat to kill pathogenic germs).

Most of the services at home from fresh milk and dairy products offer general other clear advantages to the consumer:

  • The convenience of receiving products at home, saving time and money.
  • The prices tend to be very similar to the supermarkets.
  • This type of service allows you to support the local product and develop a sustainable local economy.

In Ibiza we are in luck because in may 2013, Santa Gertrudis farm started a dairy home delivery service. It will initially be in the zone of Santa Gertrudis to then expand to the rest of the island. Ibiza has dairy!

They do not know what is the Crisis

Alfalfa hay
Ryegrass hay
Bromus fresh pulp
Barley and Hominy
Corn flakes
Fresh orange pulp
Beet pulp
Cotton seeds
Vitamins and minerals

This is the composition of the breakfast that have eaten our cows at 8 h 30, just after returning from milking. It is important when returning from milking cows to find food available so they don't lose appetite and eat before you lie down and sunbathe... Each cow consumes an average of 45 kilos of fodder and feed a day. Definitely they do not know what is the crisis.
