At Silvan Ridge Business Advisers we are proud of our clients achievements.  Today it is a huge congratulations to Ben & Bianca Evans from St David Dairy for their recent awards.

St David First Glass Non-Homogenised Full Cream Milk won GOLD last week at the DIAA Victorian Dairy Awards, achieving the highest score in its class in the state.  The milk went on to be awarded GOLD again in the National Awards.

This is a great effort considering they have only been producing their own milk for just over 12 months.  The team at St David Dairy have worked hard to achieve their goals and are currently exceeding expectations with their results.

At St David Dairy they are taking a fresh approach to dairy products, combining small scale processing with intricate attention to quality. They are excited to present a new totally independent, Paddock-to-plate, Grass-to-Glass option for fresh milk and milk products. They are real dairy people, who want to bring back to life the local dairy that once stood alongside our butchers and bakeries, before their sad demise in one of the largest rationalisations Australia has seen.

From a 4th generation Dairy farming family, St David Dairy has strong values about food origins, retention of natural properties and monopolisation.  Of great concern is that today, around 80% of fresh milk sold in Australia is from foreign owned companies. Their milk is sourced from within 100kms of Fitzroy, is processed using equipment up to 20 times smaller than large scale processors, and without any additives or by-products. Unlike the vast majority of milk sold today they don’t pull the milk apart into multiple fractions to recombine at minimum legal compositions. The same people that pick up the phone, pick up the farm fresh raw milk, process, package and deliver to you.
