Our milk is sourced from a beautiful Farm located in Drouin, 100km East of the Fitzroy in the rolling hills of Gippsland. Glenn & Rose Atherton and their 4 children produce our milk with year round calving patterns, ensuring fresh lactation protein throughout the season. Their farm is low intensity, with over 2 acres of pasture per cow, set under the beautiful backdrop of the Strzelecki Ranges. We collect their milk each day in our custom made small milk tanker, processing the milk each day in Fitzroy.
Our Full Cream milks are unstandardised, meaning they are bottled just as they come from the farm. This is milk in its best form, for body, taste and texture. While most companies will claim 'consistency' as their reason for standardising, the reality is there is money to be made from removing valuable components such as cream.
The difference this makes was apparent this year as our Full Cream Milks were awarded Gold at the Australian Fine Food Awards, with our Non-Homogenised Full Cream awarded the Best Milk Overall Trophy, in Australia. We were also awarded Gold for in the DIAA Awards this year, qualifying for the Grand Dairy Awards
For our reduced fat product, we add skim to full-cream milk, rather than pulling the entire volume apart and recombining, reducing the processing of the product as much as possible.
