Great Grandfather Hopper purchased the land in 1948 and we initially began as a cream only farm. After we built our own processing and bottling plant early this century, due to the deregulation of the industry and our fight to survive, we expanded. We began purchasing milk from other local farmers on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and beyond.
The flexibility and control afforded to us, by managing our own plant, has facilitated the opportunity for us to pay our farmers at a much higher rate per litre of milk. In turn, this has enabled each farmer to keep their herds healthy and their farms viable.
The company received an overwhelmingly positive response from their consumers. For that we are very appreciative and we say thank you for your support of our dairy, our farmers and our industry.
