Organic dairy farm runs factory in a container |

A Matamata dairy farming family is running its own factory in a shipping container.

The Vosper family’s company, Jersey Girl Organics, opened the mini factory three months ago and sells the milk directly to the customer.

Jersey Girl sells milk through specialist stores, farmer markets, and custom vending machines in Matamata (in the main street), Tauranga (at Gate Pa) and Mt Maunganui.

“If anyone wants to see the cows that make the milk, they can just come out to the farm,” said Mary Vosper✓, who works full time pasteurising the milk, bottling it, transporting it and selling it.

The Hinuera Rd farm is home to a small jersey herd, the Vosper family, a milking shed and the container factory.
