Your family’s confidence in our sheep milk products is important to us, which is why world-leading facilities, quality control and farm-management and animal welfare practices are at the heart of our processes and systems.
Proudly meeting New Zealand’s highest standards
New Zealand has some of the highest standards in the world for nutritional standards and food safety; our professionally-run farms are operated under a Government-certified risk management programme, with rigorous independent monitoring and quality testing undertaken throughout the process from farm to end product.
We’re farmers, and marketers, and sales people and supply chain managers…and most importantly we’re parents too. We understand the importance of having brands that you can rely on, which is why we go above and beyond to protect the integrity of our sheep milk and every ingredient we use, to ensure the highest quality products.

Our World-class processing technology
We implement the highest quality standards every step of the way.
Gently Does It
We ensure our sheep milk flows gently from parlour to packaging. This reduces the damage that can be caused by high levels of agitation in pipe networks and tanker transport.
Using the latest world-class low-agitation technologies, all our systems are designed to reduce damage to the structure of our sheep milk and protect quality every step of the way.
Super Chilled Sheep Milk
Keeping our milk really cold is another important way we ensure quality. Our sheep milk is immediately chilled and held at less than 2 degrees Celsius, which is well ahead of industry standards for food safety and quality.
The cold temperatures inhibit the development of oxidation, which can lead to unpleasant stale flavours.
For each milking ewe, we know exactly how much milk she is producing, as well as her overall milk volumes for the season. We also monitor things such as sheep weight and the composition of her diet. This information allows us to carefully supervise the health and wellbeing of all our precious animals and ensure our sheep milk always provides the highest possible quality.
