Or­ganic Dairy Farm­ers

Farm World News - - Farm World 2016 -

Founded in 2002, Or­ganic Dairy Farm­ers of Aus­tralis (OFDA) is a co-op­er­a­tive, owned and op­er­ated by the farm­ers that sup­ply the milk. It sup­plies over 75 per cent of all or­ganic milk pro­duced in Aus­tralia from cer­ti­fied or­ganic and bio-dy­namic farms across the main dairy­ing re­gions of Vic­to­ria.

ODFA op­er­ates un­der co-op­er­a­tive prin­ci­ples with mem­bers hav­ing shares and vot­ing rights and their core ob­jec­tive is to max­imise the farm-gate milk price payable to our mem­bers.

This dairy co-op­er­a­tive has put their money where their mouth is with a milk pro­cess­ing plant in North Gee­long and a trans­port net­work across Vic­to­ria

They sup­ply milk and dairy in­gre­di­ents to com­pa­nies in Aus­tralia and overseas who in turn carry the True Or­ganic brand as a mark of qual­ity and in­tegrity. Their ob­jec­tive is to cre­ate cheeses and dairy prod­ucts that are re­mark­able for their dis­tinc­tive flavour and qual­ity, and that re­flect the unique char­ac­ter­is­tics of the milk, pas­tures and en­vi­ron­ment where the milk is pro­duced.

The co-op is grow­ing and in­ter­ested in talk­ing with farm­ers who are think­ing about or­ganic dairy farm­ing con­tact (03) 5277 8900.
