What’s involved in a tour?
A tour guide will take you up to the baby animal pen to pat the baby calves.
We will give you a brief history of the farm and the reason why we started Maleny Dairies.
You will then be shown how handmilking is done using our cow ‘Sweetpea’ or ‘FairyBell’ or ‘Millie’.
A walk down into the pit of the dairy to see where the cows get milked. (At the 2.30pm session you can see the cows being milked)
Then we go to the factory so see where the milk is processed and bottled.
See the coldroom and drystore.
Watch a 10 minute DVD showing the process of milk from the cow to the bottle and everything in between.
At the conclusion of the tour you will get to try some of our dairy deliciousness.
(If time permits for school children grades 3 and up, we will have a question and answer session and play a game.)
