Duck River Meadows Robotic Dairy

The new Duck River Meadows Robotic Dairy is a remarkable state of the art facility housing the incredibly pure, creamy cheeses that are produced on site. La Cantara Artisan Cheeses are created from the lush grass fed cows, aged and delivered right to our consumers.

Join our enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guides and be captivated in the futuristic robotic production of the purest milk Tasmania can produce.

Hop on board the bus with our friendly, experienced guide who will describe the hump and hollow drainage system as you pass the fields lining the lane to the dairy shed. Observe some of the happiest cows on earth as they graze the greenest pastures and breathe the worlds cleanest air. Inside the Dairy you are treated full view of our beautiful cows being milked by the state-of-the-art Lely robots in our purpose built observation room.

The ladies come in voluntarily throughout the day for milking,  snacking and well-earned head scratches.  Learn the history of dairy farming and cheese making in the region and how this area produces some of Australia’s highest quality milk.

The tour concludes back at the Duck River Meadows Pavilions where you are welcome to sample and purchase the unique range of La Cantara Cheeses. A wonderful opportunity to take home products that you’ve witnessed the entire manufacturing process from paddock to plate.
