Why St Helen's Farm is
an Olympian's choice
We’re proud to announce Shona McCallin MBE, a Team GB hockey player who struck gold at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, has teamed up with us after finding cows’ milk and traditional dairy products caused her discomfort, impacting her tight training schedule and performance on the field.
Shona has been using St Helen’s Farm’s products for about 12 months and loves them. They have made a big impact on her well-being and help Shona to get the energy and protein her body needs. Shona said, “In 2014 my nutritionist advised me to give up cows’ milk products as I was in constant discomfort. I tried soya milk and other plant-based products but I just didn’t like the taste, it was such a struggle. I was thrilled when I found St Helen’s Farm, I feel so much better after I have started substituting in goats’ milk as it just seems so much gentler on my stomach. I love the taste and feel so much better now I can finally have all of my favourite things again.
I have a busy schedule and for me, balanced and healthy nutrition are fundamental for my training and performance. Since I’ve found St Helen’s Farm, milk in coffee and yogurt with granola are back in my morning routine, I even sneak St Helen’s products on tour with me when I travel to train and compete!
I think it’s amazing that making such an easy change has had such a dramatic impact on my personal well-being and day-to-day life. I’m very food conscious and knowing that St Helen’s Farm milk comes from healthy, happy goats makes the great taste even better.”
Rising British hockey star, Shona McCallin, began playing hockey at the age of six and has since found herself on a rapid ascent through the ranks of elite international players and achieved her 50th combined international appearance for Great Britain and England during the Rio Olympic Final, a historic night for the Great Britain Hockey team.
We are thrilled to be working together with Shona to showcase the benefits of switching to goats’ milk so that others can get back to the top of their own games.
