Choose Sustainable Milk From Little Big Dairy
In modern times, awareness of climate change and the need for sustainable living is everywhere. Every Australian household will take both conscious and subconscious steps to live more sustainably each and every day. As a nation, we dispose of waste properly, and re-use and recycle what we can. And when it comes to dairy products, there is no exception. But while it is important to dispose of waste correctly, it’s also essential to consider exactly where your dairy products are coming from in the first place.
Sustainable dairy farming in Australia is not only great for the environment, it’s also better for your health. So it’s important to take some care when purchasing dairy products and choose a supplier that goes the extra mile. When it comes to sustainable dairy products, we are proud to be at the forefront of the industry here at Little Big Dairy.
Shopping Sustainable Milk Brands is Better for Your Health
You may have considered how sustainable dairy farming practices are better for the environment, but what about the impact that has on your health? There are so many alternatives to dairy on the market, but it’s hard to beat the nutritional value in cow’s milk. A good source of calcium and protein as well as containing all of the essential amino acids, milk is beneficial for both children and adults alike. So sourcing sustainable dairy products is a must. You and your family can enjoy the nutritional benefit of cow’s milk and rest easy that your actions aren’t having an adverse effect on the environment.
Techniques That We Use to Guarantee Sustainable Milk Production
We operate in accordance with the Australian Dairy Industry Sustainability Framework in order to guarantee production of sustainable dairy products. At our farm, you’ll find:
We re-use and recycle where we can in order to minimise waste at our farm. All wash down water is used across the farm for irrigation, we donate our short date products to local charities and we are working towards becoming the first singular dairy.
Minimal energy usage
Here at Little Big Dairy, we only use the energy that we need. Our solar panels are able to power nearly all of our farm and we have remote access to start and stop our factory in order to maximise our resources and minimise excess energy usage and promote sustainable dairy production.
Recycling is important to us here at Little Big Dairy. Our milk is packaged in recycled cardboard boxes instead of plastic crates, enabling our trucks to operate more sustainably, our collect back service more efficient and our sanitisation process resulting in less water waste.

What We do to Make Sure We Sell Sustainable Dairy Products in Australia
All of our cows are treated with the greatest care and quality treatments. Bull (male) and heifer (female) calves are all reared the same way on the farm, despite their different roles in the farming industry. We don’t use any hormones at all in treatments to make either one better for their futures. When they’re ready, local farms benefit from our cows, and we make sure they’re still looked after to high standards.
All of our milk is single source, meaning that the whole process is carried out on our Australian dairy farm in New South Wales. That way, we can make sure that everything is cruelty free and the animals are treated right. We do everything we can to keep our cows happy and healthy. And a happy cow means better milk for our customers to have the best health benefits.
Are You Sure You’re Buying Ethically Sourced Dairy Products?
We focus on the comfort of all of our cows. We milk them regularly to avoid mastitis, but we’ll never over milk them. We monitor milking but, as cows like routine, they often come for milking at the same time in the same place every day. They come for milking by choice and we keep track of when each cow has been milked and our up-to-date technology can track the milk and tell us which cow it has come from. This is important for the quality of our milk as we can trace back to different cows if they’re being treated and make sure their milk isn’t sent to you.
some customer love
Our business has been using Little Big Dairy Milk for around 6 months. We love the flavour, the consistency and the people behind the company. Little Big have been great in supporting our business and we love working with them. Keep up the good work!
I am always searching for milk that has not been stripped of its natural creamy flavour. I am so pleased my search is over! As a farmer I believe happy cows produce better milk and applaud your animal care.
Always a pleasure to support a great product. Throw in an enlightened approach to modern Australian sustainable agriculture that directly profits the actual producers and its an absolute no brainer.
Ethical Dairy Products Start with Happy Cows
We make sure that they always have access to fresh water and a balanced diet. We have all kinds of practices in place to make sure that they produce the highest quality milk, including growing our own pasture and fodder crops, and conserving them to create silage to use in the summer. We work with local vets and nutritionists regularly to make sure that we’re getting it right, but after 100 years in the dairy industry, you know we’re doing something right.
We use Fairtrade Ingredients
It’s not just our cows we look after, it’s the people we work with too. We make sure that our coffee, cocoa, and vanilla beans all come from Fairtrade farms where workers are being paid a fair wage and treated properly. We’re proud to say that we were the first dairy producer in Australia whose flavoured milk is certified as Fairtrade.
