Our Story

A love affair with farming

Our story starts with Ian Campbell – our founder and passionate fourth-generation Queensland farmer. Ian’s family started farming in Queensland in the Burnett region way back in 1912.

Ian is a Rural Scientist, specialising in both animal and human nutrition. During the ’90s, Ian worked in the United Kingdom, South America, and Australia consulting on various farming practices.

In 2002, Ian started Barambah Organics after converting his family farm into a certified organic farm. That same year Barambah Organics shipped out its first bottles of full-flavoured organic milk to eight local stores and around fifty households in the region.

In 2006 Ian moved the family business to the Border River region of NSW and Queensland where water was abundant and the soil rich and fertile.

Since our humble beginnings in 2002, we’re proud to have become a loved award-winning Australian dairy brand to over 800 stores around Australia and overseas.

Our passion for making the best tasting dairy in the most sustainable way possible, means we’re always trying to improve how we do things. However, our purpose remains; to give you the best-tasting dairy, that’s good for you and good for all.

Naturally Pure

Certified Organic

Certified Organic produce guarantees the consumer that there is NO chemical residue and NO genetic modification.

The certification process involves regular audits of the farm by ACO to verify the farming system complies. Every input into the farm is organic, from grain and pastures to natural remedies for the cow, ensuring the milk is of the highest quality and taste.

Holistic Land Management

Regenerative agriculture

Our farms work with nature and focus on improving the farmland’s ecosystem.

With a holistic approach to land management, Regen practices involve:

  • Retaining water in the landscapes and enriching the soil.
  • Maintaining ethical practices.
  • Enhancing ecosystems to increase biodiversity.

Using this approach with its farming practices, we can retain essential nutrients in the soils that feed its herd and reduce carbon in the atmosphere. It’s nature working with nature, the way it was meant to be.

Acres of Space

Nurturing our cows

Our cows graze on mixed pastures and are 80-90% grass-fed. Their diet is supplemented with organic grains and minerals to ensure optimum health. Animal welfare and extensive grazing are fundamental organic principles. Barambah Organics stocking rate on the two dairy farms is 1 cow to 5 acres of prime agricultural land with superb pastures.

At Barambah Organics, we take care of our calves, allowing them to roam on extensive grazing lands. Rather than artificially inseminating our cows, we let nature take its course. Our milking herd is well-rested, with 100 cows enjoying a break for 2-3 months at a time.
