Maleny Dairies is a family owned business situated in the picturesque hills of Maleny

Maleny Dairies is a family owned business situated in the picturesque hills of Maleny. We have been farming on this property for three generations. With the dairy and the factory on the same property it makes it very interesting for visitors to see the whole process. A tour guide will take you up to the baby animal pen to pat the baby goat and calf. We will give you a brief history of the farm and the reason why we started Maleny Dairies. You will then be shown how hand-milking is done using our cow 'Sweetpea'. Children will also be invited to put their thumbs in the suctions cups to feel the suction of the milking machines. Then we go to the factory so see where the milk is processed and bottled. See the coldroom and drystore.
