Our home is in the Waikato of New Zealand where we are spoilt by nature. It’s natural farming country. This is where we farm our goats. And it’s only a short day’s drive from our farms to our plant where we dry their fresh milk.
Dairy Goat Co-operative is owned by our 72 goat farmers whose farms are in some of New Zealand’s richest pastures. At the farms we are feeding our goats breakfast, lunch and dinner, and milking at day’s break and day’s end. There’s lots to do. Click below to visit one of our farms.
On the Farm
On a normal morning we are up at 5.30am, changing the goats’ bedding and feed, and milking. We have a small lab on the farm so that we can test our milk samples and individual goats. Our goal is to produce the best quality milk we can.
This is where around 200 of us make sure the goats’ milk gets treated right and makes its way safely to all the corners of the world we export to. We built this plant from scratch and every part has been designed just to make goats’ milk infant formula.
