Four Cow Farm is a real farm nestled in the hills of the Blackhall Range in South-East Queensland. Today, Four Cow Farm is a 25 acre (11.25 ha) hobby farm but it was originally part of a much larger dairy farm. The farm overlooks The Glasshouse Mountains, arguably the most spectacular panorama in Queensland! This region is blessed with a wonderful climate with long sunny days, short, mild winters, and high rainfall, making this one of the most fertile areas of Queensland.
Four Cow Farm hosts a small herd of cattle (just four!), some horses, and a host of wildlife. In addition to Nanna’s large veggie patch, which provides for all our veggie needs (and some of our neighbours!), the farm is home to a large number of fruit trees which provide us with a steady crop of mandarin and Valencia oranges, lemons, mangoes, custard apples, and bananas, all of which grow without any fertilisers or pesticides, thanks to our ideal climate.
Part of Four Cow Farm farm is a wildlife conservation area forested with native trees. From time to time, we see koalas, wallabies, echidnas, an amazing variety of native birds, and a huge variety of reptiles and amphibians.
Four Cow Farm sits amongst a very productive agricultural community. Our neighbours raise beef and dairy cattle; others grow avocados, and another is home to one of the largest macadamia plantations in the world. Even water buffalo thrive here with one farm producing genuine buffalo milk mozzarella cheese. Australia may be known as “the dry continent” but our Blackhall Range region is a veritable oasis, receiving about 2 metres of rainfall per year, promoting healthy living and top quality agricultural produce.
Four Cow Farm is also proud of its environmental consciousness. All the water used on the farm including that for both human and animal consumption, as well as irrigation, comes from collected rainwater. A significant part of our electricity supply is generated on-site by solar panels and, by agreement with our power supplier, all of the electricity used on the farm is generated from green renewable energy sources.
The Four Cow Farm range was started by a Midwife, Mum & Grandmother (with hundreds of deliveries to her credit) who wanted to make creams and balms that were as good and natural as possible for her two little grandchildren (one of whom had eczema). Using time-tested recipes and traditional ingredients, Nanna’s labour of love began as a gift to her two little ones.
Nanna’s range of simple, honest, hand-worked and time-tested recipes are made with only the very best all-natural ingredients, sourced from suppliers Nanna knows and trusts herself. They are made from Nanna’s own hand-crafted recipes, without the complex mix of unnecessary fragrances and chemicals so common today, and with absolutely no artificial additives or chemical hazards whatsoever.
Today, the whole family is involved in helping to make and share Nanna’s products with mums, dads and bubs all over the world. We hope that you and your family enjoy using our products as much as we enjoyed making them!
