the time has come to share with you the uncomfortable news that we have to increase our Riverside Milk price from $2 a litre to $2.50 a litre on 2nd October 2017!
Please be assured that this decision was not made lightly! Since the new government regulations for 'Raw Milk for Sale to Customers' came into effect last year, we have been wondering about how long we could keep up with the ever increasing costs that the government has kept throwing at us and other small raw milk suppliers.
While we welcome increased scrutiny and tighter raw milk sale regulations to ensure a high quality product that is safe to drink, we are still coming to grips with the financial implications of the new regulations.
We now have come to a point where we have to increase milk prices if we want to continue to provide you with local fresh milk from our small dairy farm.
We thank you for your understanding and hope you will continue to enjoy our milk.
The Riverside Milk Team
