We grew up on farms and always wanted to be farmers, turning over the soil, growing food and raising animals. Sandy trained as a vet and I was working as an intensive care nurse. We took the plunge and left our jobs to work as full time farmers in Meredith.
In 1991, traditional farming was in turmoil and the price of wool and farming commodities became uncertain. To survive on the land we needed to be innovative and add value to our farm produce. We love food, so we decided to milk sheep, then goats, to make cheese and yoghurts.
Meredith Dairy was born.
Our love of the land and country life ensures Meredith Dairy has a positive impact on our natural world and the local community. The land provides for us, so we need to protect and improve it for future generations.
Today, our vision is for our farm to contribute to a sustainable world.
