Our Story

From humble beginnings in 2013, St David Dairy began with the hand-bottling of fresh farm milk on St David Street in the heart of Fitzroy. Our founder was a fourth generation dairy farmer who wanted to bring the dairy back into the daily lives of inner-city locals and since has seen the community embrace our award-winning milk, yoghurt, butter and cream.

Each day, we take in pure milk delivered from our carefully selected farmers in Gippsland, at the base of the Strezlecki ranges just 100kms from the factory door. Before we start anything, we make sure that our first morning coffee has perfectly textured milk with an award-winning delicious taste and creaminess.

At a time when provenance and ‘food miles’ count, it’s little wonder that word has spread among those who want something wholesome and as natural as possible from their local producers.

Together both farm and factory strive to bring the most beautiful & sustainable milk daily, giving taste, quality and traceability to businesses and families alike.

Barista Preferred

Our milk matters, and this is evident amongst baristas. Our award-winning milk’s body, taste and texture transforms regular into the remarkable.

Quality Assured

Each batch of milk is tested every single morning by ‘stretching’ to ensure your next pour of St David milk is as good as your last and fit for your coffee.

Local & Fresh

Daily milk sourced close to the dairy gate make St David products as fresh as can be.

Ethical & Sustainable

Smaller supply chains, both in size and proximity, provide the transparency needed to realise our commitment to ethical and environmental welfare

Founding Principles

At St David Dairy, we aim to take a fresh approach to dairy. Our processes and localised supply chain results in providing the freshest dairy products, offering maximum impact on taste buds with the least possible impact on the environment. Above all, we embrace the small business mentality, that is a small and committed team working together to process, package and deliver premium dairy.

All our milk is sourced from the rolling hills of Gippsland and crafted into our premium products at Melbourne’s only micro-dairy, where we deliver fresh from our Fitzroy factory door, right here in St David Street.

Unadulterated, award winning dairy,  free from additives or by-products. St David is made by real dairy people, with the sole aim of bringing the local dairy back to the Fitzroy community and inner city Melbourne.

We also feel strongly about giving back to the local community as much as possible. We are Business Sponsors of our Local Community Radio Station PBS 106.7 FM. We also do weekly milk drops to both St Mary's House of Welcome, and St Mark's Fitzroy, who provide meals for locals in need. We also provide the dairy requirements for the Moira Kelly Creating Hope Foundation helping sick and in-need children and their families here in Melbourne.
