New milk processing plant to open at Dubbo. A BOLD plan for a Rawsonville dairy to vertically-integrate their business will result in Dubbo having its own milk processing plant for the first time in more than a decade.
The Little Big Dairy Co will start production at its new on-farm processing plant in October, incorporating one of the most modern and technologically-advanced milk harvesting systems in Australia.
The plant will be supplied by the company's 800-cow herd, which produces top-quality, single-source milk from grazing paddocks along the banks of the Macquarie River.
The Little Big Dairy Co is a completely local business, owned and run by the Chesworth family: Erika and Steve Chesworth, sons Duncan and Campbell Chesworth, and daughter Emma Elliott and her husband Jim.
The Chesworth family has been involved in dairying for more than 100 years, and is now expanding its business into processing to ensure complete quality control and integrity from the pasture in the paddock through to the final product.
The family relocated their dairy to the Rawsonville farm seven years ago from Denman.Read Full Press Release →
