Red Cow Dairies
Red Cow Dairies is a family operated business that is located in Tasmanians beautiful north west coast. Our herd is made up of 300 gentle natured Aussie Red Cows which have been in our family for over a decade. Bred for Australian conditions they thrive on our farm which is run with sustainable farming practices. They produce high quality milk which allows us to make our beautiful artisan products…. At the pinnacle of the drought in northern Victoria, we made the life changing decision to pack up our suitcases and our Dairy herd and move to the beautiful, high-rainfall area of north-western Tasmania where we bought a 155-hectare farm at Oldina.

Produce to the People
My ancestry is full of cooks and farmers, artists and sailors. Much of my childhood was spent either in the veggie patch, or in the kitchen cooking from the garden spoils. These early lessons have stayed with me through adulthood and with life lessons, an understanding of the vital role community has in all our lives, Produce to the People has been born.
