The goats and cows at Nimbin Valley spend sunny days grazing outdoors across 120 hectares of fertile green pastures. They have shelter from the rain and are happy to greet us at five o’clock each morning when it’s time for milking. Their wellbeing is a priority for us, so we don’t feed them anything else we wouldn’t be happy to eat ourselves.
The goats and cows have their own nutritionist and vet who help keep them happy, healthy and in top condition. Their diet is balanced with the correct amounts of protein, energy, minerals and vitamins. This, in turn, ensures they produce the highest quality and best tasting milk.
Kerry tends to our animals and conducts regular heath checks on each and every member of the herd. If an animal is prescribed antibiotics, she is rested from the milking herd until fully recovered. This is one of the ways we keep our milk and cheeses completely free of chemicals, hormones and antibiotics.
