Tommerup's Dairy Farm
2142 Kerry Road
Kerry QLD 4285 Australia

Tommerup's Dairy Farm offers a genuine working farm holiday experience for our guests. Our 6th generation working dairy farm is the perfect place to connect with real farmers and farm animals, learn about life on a dairy farm, experience delicious produce directly from the farm; a place to jump in boots 'n' all to farm life or just relax in the beautiful surroundings of our farm in the picturesque Kerry Valley, Scenic Rim Qld.

Join our family at the dairy and get hands-on with our dairy herd as we do the twice daily milking, meet and feed our friendly calves, sheep, pigs and chickens on the daily feeding rounds. You can help out with bottle feeding the calves, smashing pumpkins for our rowdy pigs and spreading grains for the chickens. Pack a picnic and head off down to Duck Creek or the Albert River.

Offering personal attention to our guests is important to us. With only 2 guest houses on the property, you'll feel part of our farm family as you join us, the farmers, for our daily milking and feeding chores yet delight in the space and privacy to enjoy the company of your family and friends during your farm holiday. If it's an authentic paddock to plate experience that you're looking for, our farm is the perfect place for you. Order one of our gourmet hampers or visit the farm larder to purchase delicious produce fresh from our farm. We look forward to welcoming you to our family farm.
