DocHouse Presents: THE MOO MAN + DIRECTOR AND PROTAGONIST Q&A

Stephen Hook is not your average dairy farmer, but then Ida and her 55 spirited bovine cohorts are not your average Friesian cows.

Determined not to succumb to the cost cutting ways of dairies and supermarkets, Hook and Son, a family run Sussex farm, stick to their guns and sell raw, unpasteurised milk direct to consumers. But life on the farm is not just a profession for Stephen: each cow has a name and is lovingly cared for, especially the farm’s resident “cover girl,” Ida.

Tender, captivating and comical, THE MOO MAN is a careful portrait of the rarest of maverick farmers, and his even rarer relationship with his herd.


This film will be followed by a Q&A with both the film’s directors, Andy Heathcote and Heike Bachelier and also the film’s star, farmer Stephen Hook.

    Well, I certainly won't be going to this. I think that cow's milk is for baby cows just like human milk was meant for human babies. Plus we were weaned off it! There is no need for us to drink milk from another species. We can get our calcium from green leafy vegies and besides, the calcium in cow's milk is too coarse for us to break down effectively.

    Again is this film relevant to this group? The description of this group is: "If you're interested in healthy living and healthy eating, feel welcome to join this group". How we all know dairy is not healthy, it contributes to osteoporosis, asthma, eczema among others.
