WILD CANARY ON THE ROAD -

TOMMERUP CREAMERY LAUNCH CELEBRATION, FARM TOUR & LUNCH

Location: Tommerup's Dairy Farm, 2142 Kerry Road, Kerry QLD 4285

Date: Saturday 25th May 2019

Cost: $195pp

As the threads are pulled on the patchwork of small family dairy farms that once made the Scenic Rim the land of milk and honey, the Tommerup family is embracing the fabric of their past and taking a step back to a simpler time. With a history as rich and authentic as the jersey milk they produce, the family is opening their own Creamery on the farm and in the process, weaving the traditions of their forebearers into a vibrant future for their 6th generation family farm.

Sweet, golden cream from the family’s Jersey girls will be traditionally churned into sweet and cultured butter, just metres from where the girls are milked each day. This tradition began on the farm over 110 years ago with milk being separated on-farm, the cream going by horse & coach to the local butter factory and the skim milk nourishing the family’s pigs. The dairy evolved as bulk milk sales began and 50 years later, the historic story is rekindled.

The Wild Canary team are incredibly excited to be combining our annual farm tour and lunch with this historic opening event. Tommerup’s Creamery will be the only on-farm creamery in Queensland producing buttermilk and cultured butter exclusively from their own herd.  

Join us for the official opening and morning tea, followed by farm tour and a long lunch co-hosted by Wild Canary and the Tommerup Family.

Lunch will be held against the backdrop of open fields, Tommerup’s beloved jersey cows and the picturesque mountain scenery for the ultimate paddock-to-plate experience all just over an hour’s drive from Brisbane.

LOCATION: This event is located at Tommerup's Dairy Farm in the picturesque Kerry Valley, part of the Scenic Rim region Queensland, within 75 minutes drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
