The Hopper family has owned the Maleny Dairies property since 1948. The owners and directors of the business, Ross and Sally Hopper are the third generation to live and work on the family farm in Maleny. Ross grew up here and married Sally in 2005. Her family are also long-term locals and have been dairying in Maleny for five generations, since 1906. Their children will be the fourth generation of Hopper’s running the family farm and business. More on the Hopper family below. Ross and Sally are proud and lucky to have a great team of staff working for them at Maleny Dairies. They all work under a key group whose job it is to ‘make it happen’. This is our team.

Harold and Dorothy Hopper – (Dad and Mum) Our parents believed in the Maleny Dairies concept and encouraged the family to take a risk, to give it a go and succeed with our dreams.
Keith and Sonya Hopper – (Brother and Sister in-law) Not only were they our first supplier from their Maleny dairy farm, but their commitment went way past business. During construction Keith would milk in the mornings, then spend most of the day helping with the construction of the Maleny Dairies buildings and then he milked in the afternoons. Any spare time he had, he caught up on paddock work. He did that for weeks.
Kay and Geoff Hollyoak – (Sister and Brother in-law) Kay previously worked for us in another business and when the factory was built, she worked for us at the Maleny Dairies HQ. Kay learnt on the run and successfully ran the office implementing marketing plans for the company. Kay spent 12 years working for Maleny Dairies.
To all Our Family we would just like to say a BIG Thank You with all our heart, we do appreciate it.
