The Man Behind the Milk

Local The Man Behind the Milk

It’s always there, from the moment we’re born… Milk!

As mammals milk is part of our DNA, it defines us as Mammalia, ok I’m not saying that we're all cows but enjoying a glass of milk is innate. It’s part of us.

And over the years our love of milk hasn’t changed but what has changed is milk itself. I’m sure when your grandma met the milkman at the bottom of her driveway he wasn’t delivering…

Homogenised,

Unhomogenised

Full Cream,

Low Fat,

Skim,

Lactose Free,

Vitamin Enriched, …the list goes on.

It was just milk, deliciously tasty, super fresh milk.

And that’s exactly what Glenn Haines and his family are doing at Udder Farm; brining back good old fashioned milk. Milk that tastes like it should: rich, full of flavor and with a dollop of cream on top. 


Udder Farm is one of the only privately-run dairies left in the Hunter Valley. Everything is done in-house, from the grass up, and that’s how Glen and his team are putting flavor back into a household staple.

The daily rhythm of the farm is meditative. Their herd of Jersey and Fresian cows are walked into the dairy twice a day for milking. The milk is then bottled at their onsite facility and depending on the season, you can see Glen making butter, cheese or yogurt as well.

It’s hard work, but by milking and bottling onsite Glen has complete control over his brand and what goes into the product. He’s not at the mercy of big co-operatives and supermarket distributors that are responsible for the price wars we’re currently seeing.

Just like your grandma, Glens customers get delicious, fresh, local milk from their family owned and operated farm.

It’s about flavor, knowing what goes into the food you’re eating and choosing where your hard earned dollars go. I know what I’m choosing...

And… after spending some time with Glen and his team I have a whole new appreciation for the early mornings and late nights that go into my warm latte each day!

6 Cheeses that will change your life!

I tried all our Hunter Belle cheeses so you don’t have to… but after reading this you’ll surely want to! Let’s just start by saying… it was a tough gig! 6 delicious local cheeses over 5 days… spare a thought. :) I asked Lauren if there is some kind of method to this, you know 'start with the soft and work your way up to the hard' and she advised me to just dig in… and start eating… so that's what I did.
