We come from a long, proud line of dairy farmers; for over 100 years, our family has worked hard to sustainably produce the best milk you can buy. We do this because we're driven to keep farming. For us it's more than a business, it's what we live and breathe!
We're so excited to bring our Little Big Dairy Milk to you... it's everything we believe in, captured in a bottle.
We started the Little Big Dairy Co to deliver the best-tasting, 'Single Source' milk you'll drink to as many people as possible. It's our belief that this shouldn't be reserved for the lucky few. It should be readily available to many, supporting the economy in which it was made.
But what really makes us special is our herd of 800 beautiful Holsteins, born and raised on our farm. Each has a name, which we know by heart. They make us who we are, are it's their happiness and health that allow us to deliver over 8 million litres of milk every year.
The Little Big Dairy Co delivers high quality milk from one dairy, traceable down to the very cow that made it. It's the smallness of our process combined with our ability to supply these substantial quantities that allow us to share our milk with many.Read more here
At Little Big Dairy Co, passion and heart are the main ingredients in everything we do. It’s there from the first step in the production process and all the way to your table. That’s why you can count on our products to deliver amazing flavour.
That commitment and passion make us something more than a milk company. We’re a family, and Australia is our home. We believe in taking care of our home, and that means sustainable farming and fair trade practices. When you choose our wholesale products or flavoured milks, you are supporting your local farmers and the Australian community.
We come from a long line of dairy farmers and it has been our way of life for more than 100 years. In that time, our family has fine-tuned every part of the production process. We’ve learned so much, and every generation continues to improve the way we do business.
The Chesworth name represents a lineage we’re proud to call our own. It truly is our way of life, and our children have taken up the mantle. Each of them has found a place in the family business, so you can rest assured that our family will continue this legacy of caring for years to come.
Our company wouldn’t be possible without our herd of beautiful--and extremely happy--Holsteins. You see, we’ve learned a little secret over the years: the way our cows feel is important to what we do. It affects how much milk they are able to produce, and studies show it can even affect how the milk tastes!
It’s not all about our finished product, however. It’s also about being thankful for our way of life. Without our Holsteins, nothing we do would be possible. They’re as much a part of the family as any of us, and we like to take care of our own.
When it comes to taking care of our own, we like to think about every Australian as being a part of our family. That includes our fellow farmers, and that’s why we feed our cows from fodder produced entirely by local Australian farmers. When we support local farmers, we also support the local economy.
More than that, we are helping these families continue on in their own farming traditions. In that way, we’re helping to preserve the living history of Australia for future generations.
We have over 1000 purebred Holsteins – and we know them all by name. We put our cows’ health and happiness above all else in our dairy milk company, making sure that they are comfortable and well looked after. This means that we can sustainably produce the best milk you can buy – 8 million litres of it are delivered every single year.
As an Australian milk company, we pay particular attention to all the processes in milk production, staying ahead of the curve with technology. This means that all our milk is traceable, and through streamlining and vertical integration, we have created a little dairy operation with the capability to produce, process and bottle right here on our Australian dairy farm.
We have over 100 years of dairy farming heritage, and as a family-owned business, we all live and breathe our purebred Holstein herd. Steve and Erika Chesworth have lived on the land their whole lives and instilled in their children a love and appreciation for environmentally friendly, sustainable farming. As the children have grown up, they have become more involved in the day-to-day running of not only the dairy itself, but the business, production, and marketing, too.
Each member of the family has a defined role to play in the process – Erika raises the calves, Steve and their middle child Duncan manages milk production and the cattle, Duncan’s wife Danielle manages the registered stud records, Emma and her husband Jim manage the factory and deal with the business decisions (with Jim focusing on delivery and logistics), and while the youngest son Campbell is still at University, he helps out on the farm when he is at home.
We love the fact that as an Australian milk company, we are a true family. That love is shared with all 1000 members of our cow family, too. We know each cow – their personality, their likes, and dislikes, whether they want to be first in the milking parlour or last. We are a registered stud for the breed, and each and every calf produced is raised to the same standards – with bull calves (boys) going to other dairy herds or into the beef production system, and heifers becoming the next generation of milkers.
All our cows have access to grass – all year. Of course, we supplement their grass intake with high-calorie, nutritious extras, but we ensure that their diet is natural; no hormones, no unnecessary antibiotics, and no fillers. We source all our off-farm fodder from other local farmers, keeping our whole industry as local as possible.
Milk tastes better when the cows are happy, well-fed, and well-loved. We are an award-winning dairy milk company, and our customers are the first to tell us that we are the best milk brand in Australia.
Whether you are looking for a fat-free way to enjoy your coffee, or you want the traditional creamy taste of less processed milk, then you will find the perfect product for you.
We have full-fat, less fat and no-fat milks, flavoured milks made with Fairtrade ingredients, and even delicious non-homogenised milk that can be bought at your local retailer, not to mention our pure double and pouring creams perfect for plating up desserts or you might be lucky enough to have a barista that uses our milk in your local café or restaurant. Now, we even offer home delivery to selected areas – so it has never been easier to taste our delicious milk.
At the heart of our Australian owned milk brand is a tension between little and big, inspired by a belief that if you look after the little things, the big things will take care of themselves. Coming from a long proud line of dairy farmers, our farm has the advanced expertise of a large dairy, but the intimacy, attention-to-detail and innate passion of a small family Australian dairy farm. With a firm focus on the individual wellbeing of our cows, our community and the end product, we’re driven to sustainably farm and deliver delicious award-winning, high quality, single-source dairy produce that others simply can’t match. Try it out today and see for yourself how we measure up to the competition!
'Single Source' means our milk is produced solely on our farm. Our farm on the Macquarie River in the Central West of New South Wales allows us to do this on a large scale; we see the product from start to finish, milking through to processing and into the bottle.
We like to think of 'Single Source' as our promise to you. It is our attention to detail that helps us ensure our milk is of the highest quality, traceable down to the very cow that made it.Read more
