Milk flows for new milk co-op

“We are grateful for the broad support from our community and the Farming Together Program in helping to get us to this stage,” co-op chairperson Stuart Crosthwaite said.

“Look out for the signs on our gates next time you are driving up the Kiewa Valley.

“We want consumers to recognise the farms which are supplying Mountain Milk and for people to take pride in knowing where their milk comes from.

“We are delighted to confirm that our milk will find its way to consumers through our valued relationships with both the Freedom Foods Group, and Gundowring Fine Foods through their multi-award-winning Gundowring Ice-cream.

“We feel fortunate to have been able to secure arrangements with these two businesses who are both determined to bring high-quality dairy products to Australian consumers.”

Mr Crosthwaire said Mountain Milk Co-op was also pleased to welcome the Hicks family from Dederang, to the co-operative.

Klein Meer Jersey’s is owned by Jack and Christine Hicks, and operated by their daughter Teresa and her partner Darren Sagrera.

This brings the milk under the cooperative control to over 21 million litres, and importantly adds another two valued farming families to the Mountain Milk Cooperative.

“As farmers, we want to have more control of our future, and to be able to have more say in creating our own destiny,” Mr Crosthwaite said.

“We want to explore all options to strengthen the future of dairy which makes such a great contribution to our communities in the Alpine Valleys.

“We see building relationships with high-quality farmers and high-quality processing partners as crucial to our future, as well as keeping all our options open for further growth and development.”
