Meredith Dairy Marinated Goats Cheese
Meredith Dairy is an on-farm enterprise, milking sheep and goats year-round to make specialty cheeses and yoghurts. Our products are sold throughout Australia and exported around the world.
Up until 1990 farming at Meredith focused on beef, prime lamb and wool production. When the reserve price for wool was discontinued in the 1990s, the sheep industry collapsed. To stay viable it was necessary to search for alternative farming systems, in particular, options that involved value-adding primary produce and which offered a sustainable income, irrespective of global commodity prices.
The owners, Sandy & Julie Cameron extensively researched animal husbandry, sheep and goat milk production and cheese-making techniques. Two years later the Meredith Dairy factory was built on the farm. The farming activities now concentrate on supply of inputs for the dairy animals including growing grains and fodder.
Sandy, a qualified Veterinarian who received his doctorate in philosophy in 1985, has focused his research in sheep & goat reproduction, particularly in year-round production. Ongoing research and development enable continual improvement to farming systems, final products and sustainability.
