  • Maleny Dairies provides an interesting tour experience for all ages. The 2:30 pm tour is a good bet as it includes watching the cows being milked.

  • I regularly buy the Maleny Dairies Farmer's Choice Pasteurised Only Guernsey Milk. It is amazing. I love the globs of cream on top, the milk is smooth and the taste is beautiful. If you love milk, try Maleny Dairies milk.
  • I like everything about Maleny Dairy products. Milk, cream, yoghurt. It is an interesting place to take the kids.
  • Every week after finished working volunteer at Sunshine FM I always pull over and get the Guernsey milk and my favorite's chocolate milk. I just discovered it's convenient. Choose Maleny milk as a part of my daily activity.
  • Very interesting tour and their products are genuinely great to have. Would recommend going if you are in the area.
  • I was very saddened to learn a few facts recently about the dairy industry. I didn't know that cows don't produce milk unless they've given birth to a calf (like humans) and that the calf (especially if male) is taken away from its mother and sent to the slaughterhouse as it is of no further use. Female calves will ultimately follow in their mother's footsteps and become a milker! We don't need milk to survive! It's food for calves, not humans!
