The cows are busy eating grass. All go at the farm :)

Did you see us on Landline?
Pip Courtney spent a few days with us and even visited the Beaudesert show. The result: a fabulous segment on Landline. We have had lots of positive comments from people who have seen the show.

Happy 1st Birthday to us!
Hard to believe – 1 year has passed for Scenic Rim 4REAL MILK in the marketplace. As part of our 1st birthday celebrations, we had a huge Birthday Party on the farm on 28th June 2014… at which we had a crowd of visitors in the thousands (our Official Launch this time last year saw about 5,000 people come through the gates!!)
This day also doubled as a fundraiser, with all proceeds going towards BeyondBlue – a cause close to my heart, having personally recovered from Clinical Depression.
There was high quality entertainment (Harmony James, Rob & Kelly Black, local identity Keith Dunn, and Tom, Ken & Darrell’s band). Lots of fun for the kids, and most importantly real time viewings of cows being milked in the robotic dairy, and milk bottling in our factory. The day also signified the launch of our hard cheeses, 4REAL CLOTHBOUND CHEDDAR, and 4REAL RED LEICESTER, joining our soft cheeses, Camembert & Triple Cream Brie.
We have experienced a tremendous level of support from our stores, customers, and followers alike. So many have invested emotionally in our long-term survival, in a cutthroat industry.
So what’s all the excitement about?
Scenic Rim 4Real Milk is just that: REAL milk - straight from our farm to you. We haven’t added anything, we’ve kept processing to a minimum and only shops/cafes within a 2 hour drive will be stocking our milk.
Thanks to everyone who attended our open day - it was absolutely amazing! Minister John McVeigh officially launched our milk, people raved about the great coffee, checked out our robotic dairy, our brand new bottling factory and enjoyed great music by Harmony, Dozzi and Rob Black. We were humbled by the number of families who attended...the kids had a ball on the hay bales and generally, a lot of milk was drunk!
Thanks for making our launch one to remember!
What’s so good about Scenic Rim 4Real milk?
Taste the difference! Who’s stocking our milk?
