We are fundraising to build and equip a Creamery on our 6th generation dairy farm - and we need your help!
We want to share our love for our animals, our land and the work we do so that you and your family can appreciate the full dairy farm experience; a true paddock to plate journey.
Our aim is to not only build a resilient and positive future for our family on the farm but to rebuild vibrancy into the local dairy industry. We’ve come a long way to create a bright future for our small, some would say micro, dairy from the depths of despair when the effects of deregulation hit. Hard work and a determination to keep this family property, so rich in history and stories of dedication and passion, thriving for generations to come. We’re ready to take the next step and we’ve been working hard to get there. We see this campaign as a chance for our Friends of the Farm to get involved in the next chapter of our story, to be part of something unique and exciting for our family and yours. Come, join with us on this journey of provenance, of connection and of true culinary joy.
WHAT WE NEED & WHAT YOU GET
To make our Creamery a reality, we need to raise $70,000. Our Creamery will be a completely mobile, modern facility with a heritage twist in-keeping with our family's history on the farm. We truly believe in buying and supporting local so we're sourcing all local machinery to equip our Creamery including a milk pasteuriser, cream separator, even the Creamery itself. All of this needs to be to the strictest standards to meet Queensland's SafeFood certification. We've done our research, we know what our customers want and we're ready to jump in, boots n all. Are you ready to don your boots and jump in too?? We have a number of packages based on your level of support. Big or small, your contribution will be greatly appreciated.
We believe there is a future for dairy farms in Queensland and particularly, for small family farms like ours who diversify their farm business to welcome consumers to connect with their food and the farmers that produce it. Now is the time to build resilient farm businesses to ensure the future of fresh milk production in Queensland. We are one of less than 380 dairy farms left in Queensland. It's a fact that is hard to take but it is very real. By building and running the Creamery, we will be creating unique, single source dairy products fresh from the farm for your enjoyment and creating a sustainable future for our historic family farm. #knowyourlocalfarmer - you can't get a better connection than that!
