Dairy farmers often get a raw deal for their raw milk, but since going independent in December 2009, Wayne and Rhonda Somerville have more than kept up with the Joneses. “We did a lot of farmers’ markets when we first got going that enabled us to get the milk to the public,” says Rhonda. “It was a lot of hard work and it took us a while to get a foothold, but now the quality of our milk sells itself.” You’ll find Jonesy’s full-cream, low-fat, non-homogenised and flavoured milks in a café, foodstore or independent supermarket near you.
Because the Somervilles own their own tanker, the milk arrives more quickly at the dairy from their farms in Kerang in northern Victoria and Mt Gambier, South Australia. But the freshest thing about Jonesy’s is its personal connection with the farmers. “Coffee venues like the consistency and the way the milk doesn’t overpower their coffee blend but enhances the flavour,” Rhonda says. “And consumers like the fact we treat our animals well.”
