Organic dairy farmer of 20 years’ standing, Jane Campbell, has joined the Board of Australian Organic, the country’s lead organic body. 

Jane Campbell and her husband Ian founded Barambah Organics in 2002, a certified organic dairy business in South Queensland. 

Welcoming her to the Board as interim director, Australian Organic said: “Jane provides the Board with a level of dairy industry experience not previously available, and is a strong advocate for farmers and the integrity of the organic industry”. 

Campbell told the Bellingen Shire Courier-Sun: “I’ve always been a passionate advocate for farmers rights given how familiar I am with the numerous challenges of organic farming.”

“I also believe in upholding the integrity of the organic industry. Ensuring that consumers recognise the certified organic Bud logo and only look for certified organic products is a vital part of that.”

Barambah Organics began in 2002 after Ian Campbell converted his fourth generation family farm, ‘Spring Creek’ in 1999 to organic status with Australian Certified Organic. The business operates two dairy farms in the Border Rivers Region of Queensland. The farms are well located on the Dumaresq River System and on the McIntyre Brook. Our cows graze on mixed pastures and are 80-90% grass fed. There are now close to 800 stores around Australia, and a number of stores overseas, who are stocking Barambah products.
