Kenilworth Dairies - John Cochrane "All I wanted was to be dairy farmer"
This week Roz chats with John Cochrane from Kenilworth Dairies.
Kenilworth Dairies has a rich history in the dairy industry. Surrounded by the natural beauty of the Mary Valley and Sunshine Coast hinterland it is no wonder our products are fresh and full of passion. The dairy industry is nothing new to fourth generation dairy farmer, John Cochrane. Originally from Kin Kin, John was taught the ‘ins and outs’ of dairying from his Father and Mother, Alan and Mavis Cochrane. For the past 93 years a Cochrane has represented Queensland dairy farmers on various dairy boards, a real testament to the family’s passion and commitment to the industry. As many farmers know, dairy farming is hard and only for the truly passionate. Over the years John watched as many of his neighbours and friends sold their properties to stay afloat. A locavore is a person who chooses to consume food that is grown, raised, or produced locally, usually within 200 kilometres from home.
A 'Locavore' connects food consumers with the food producers within a small targeted radius developing better food networks, improving local economies and enriching health, environmental, community and social impacts. Local products not only keep money in our community, they make it from ‘paddock to plate’ in the shortest possible time frame to ensure the freshest possible product at a great price! Where ever possible we support local suppliers. You too can support local businesses who supply our stores with a range of goods. The next time you are in our stores look out for the local logo as it’s your ‘ticket’ to purchasing a quality locally produced or grown product.
