“A fair price for milk, from grass to glass!”
That is what farmers are after, according to local dairy farmers Barambah Organics.
For all their efforts: rejuvenating soils, planting crops, looking after the well-being of their animals and staff.
"There are many risks in farming, then manufacturing and distributing your own products. It is akin to gambling, hoping that every punt pays off," Ian Campbell said.
In concert with other family owned and operated dairies and processors, who met in Melbourne last week, Barambah delivered a carton of milk in glass, to local member, the Honourable David Littleproud with the message: “A fair price for milk, from grass to glass!”
The dynamic duo from Gippsland Jersey, business partners Sallie and Steve, were able to pull together producers from around Australia. Barambah's part was to deliver a carton to the Agricultural Minister’s office.
"We are all working ridiculously hard to support family Australian owned brands. The future of the Australian dairy industry depends on your support," Mr Campbell said.
