Amber Creek FarmAmber Creek Farm Daniel and Amelia Bright grow high quality pasture raised pork using a rotational cell grazing system they have developed on their farm at Fish Creek.
At Amber Creek Farm we practice ethical and regenerative farming. The cell grazing system means the pigs always have access to fresh pasture or crops, which has many benefits including soil improvements and very importantly outstanding meat quality.

Dairy beef, and 100% grass-fed products such as quark, yoghurt, cheeses are just some of the deliciousness. They run a small herd, use no antibiotics and bobby calves are grown out to maturity.
Butterfly FactoryButterfly Factory milk is sourced from dairy farmer, Rob Monk at Poowong East. His Fleckvieh cows are milked once a day and fed no grain nor silage. No superphosphate, potassium or sodium is applied. We do not homogenise the milk but batch pasteurise and wash and re-use glass bottles for the milk and jars for the yoghurt, which is pot set, cream at the top. Only cultures are added.
