Based out of the Waikato, the Vosper family has been farming for over 100 years. For 13 years they have been Jersey Girl Organics, and they talked to the team about their business.
What is your company background, how did you start the business?
“Our family has been farming Jersey cows on the edge of Matamata since 1911. In 2004 we converted to organic and have recently formed Jersey Girl Organics so we could process and sell delicious Jersey cow milk to New Zealand families.”
What are the current product range and variants and how do these products stand out in the market?
“We produce fresh full cream certified organic Jersey cow milk that is not homogenised or standardised. The milk is available in both one litre and two litre bottles. Our milk is unique because it is sourced only from our farm, so there is 100% traceability and we are one of the few companies that produces milk sourced only from Jersey cows. Jersey cow milk is superior because it has more cream, more protein per litre and contains high levels of A2 beta-casein.”
Has there been any recent company news?
“We have been named as a finalist for the Outstanding NZ Food Producer awards.”
Where are your products currently available to buy, and are you looking at or wanting to expand your availability?
“Waikato Farmers Markets, selected New World stores in the Waikato, Commonsense Organics, Moore Wilsons, Cere's and various cafes and specialist stores. We are currently looking to expand our number of Auckland stockists.”
