Barambah Organics began in 2002 after Ian Campbell converted his fourth generation family farm, “Spring Creek” in 1999 to organic status with Australian Certified Organic. The family has been farming at “Spring Creek” since 1912. The farming operation moved to the Goondiwindi region in 2006 in order to secure access to reliable water. This has been an excellent move for barambah Organics and the cows are thriving in this location.
Ian is a highly qualified Rural Scientist who specialised in animal nutrition at University and then delved further into human nutrition. Ian worked in Queensland and Victoria as an animal nutrionist in the early 1990s and then took a position with a company that had him working in both the United Kingdom (UK) and in South America in the late 1990s for two years. He had seen that many consumers were embracing certified organic foods in the UK. He could see on the UK farms, what practices they had in place in order to convert the farms to organic status, and soon realised that those practices were already in place on his family farm.
Barambah produced its first bottle of milk on March 17, 2002. There were eight stores and around fifty homes that were ready to take the milk, bottled in glass. Some of those stores are still taking our product today like Rosalie Foodstore and Plenty Deli at Eight Mile Plains. There are now close to 600 stores who are stocking Barambah products.
Barambah has an excellent team in place, who have been working with us for many years. Barambah has achieved both international and national dairy awards and is now successfully exporting to a number of countries.
