I rate Cathy. She's an awesome human who took a huge leap of faith that was driven by her heart and values. Cathy couldn't comprehend that calves were being taken from their mother's and slaughtered so we could drink their mother's milk. I for one stand with her on this matter, big time!
HOW NOW Dairy is the end result of her heart and vision. It's what happens when a music industry exec (that's Cathy) meets a third generation dairy farmer, and together they decide to challenge the globally accepted inhumane dairy industry practices and create an ethical dairy farm based on the simple premise of kindness.
Third generation dairy farmer and renowned dairy nutritional consultant, Dr Les Sandles found himself becoming increasingly disenfranchised with the direction of the Australian dairy industry toward mega-dairies and in 2012, he and partner, Cathy Palmer, a passionate animal right activist who had built a career in the music industry, decided to stop complaining about the problem – and become part of the solution.
The dairy is small, family owned, and fiercely independent. They're proud of their commitment to a more ethical approach to dairy production.
Keep your ears and heart open in this one and see how much impact the value of kindness has when it's put into action.
