The Tweedvale Philosophy

Quality, integrity, commitment to customers, passion and hard work are what makes Tweedvale Milk stand above the rest, and the awards and accolades speak for themself. Like all artisans, the Lorenzetti family knew that a product that is less processed, less handled and given more care and attention would stand out in the market.  

 

Tweedvale Milk is pasteurised, unhomogenised milk that comes from several small dairy farms in the pristine Adelaide Hills, South Australia.  The cows on each of the farms live a contented, stress free life, with a specific balance of quality dry and green feed all year around.  Each of the cows are cared for by proud farmers who know that the extra effort makes a difference to the end product, all year round.  Full of flavour and consistently producing a thicker, creamier foam, Tweedvale Milk has become the astute barista’s preferred weapon behind the steamer.  

Family Beginnings

Giuliano and Rita Lorenzetti purchased the Tweedvale Farm in Lobethal, South Australia in 1974.  Over the next 25 years, they milked a small herd of Holstein Friesian cows while holding down various second jobs to make ends meet as their two children grew up.

The milk processing business started in the late 80’s.  Investing $13,000 in a small, second-hand pasteuriser, they set about converting milk from a handful of cows into a product they could sell directly to a local boutique cheese maker and a handful of forward thinking gelati makers.  The next couple of years turned out to be the turning point of the local cafe scene – freshly made gelato and pastries, coupled with lovingly made barista coffee turned cafes into a place to be seen, rather than a place to grab a sandwich from.  A few entrepreneurial cafe owners recognised that if they were to stand out they needed a point of difference, so they started making their coffee with Tweedvale Milk. The rest, as they say, is history.

To Proudly Supporting SA Farmers

Today, the Tweedvale Family proudly operate from their Lobethal Processing Plant and employ 15 people within various roles in the business. 

Rita and Giuliano work with their son, Carlo Lorenzetti who stepped into running the family business several years ago. 

They employ staff in administration, bottling, operations and delivery. Tweedvale works closely with Deliver It Group to manage all the daily deliveries to Adelaide’s cafes and supermarkets, ensuring a quality refrigerated product from dairy to consumer. 

The business has ongoing partnership arrangements with several small local dairy farms that supply the raw milk on a daily basis. These proud farmers continue to ensure the cows are happy, content and stress free. They are fed a specific balanced and consistent diet of quality dry and green feed all year round, which is how Tweedvale Milk can ensure they deliver such a high quality, consistent milk all year round.

The Lorenzetti family are proud to continue to do their bit to ensure that the dairy industry survives in the Adelaide Hills and sets the benchmark for quality.  Now in the market, customers have a whole range of independent and local dairy labels to choose from. The consumer wins with quality and choice, while the dairy industry in South Australia continues to live on and thrive. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.

Tweedvale Milk has consistently won awards for flavour, texture and performance every year for over 12 years.
