  • "When it seems like there’s an ever-growing list of things that can be milked – some of which seem more ludicrous than others – a product that cuts through the noise with an ethical, nutritious and tasty offering is worth sitting up and taking notice of. While switching out the staple cow’s milk for camel milk in your morning coffee may seem a little new age, cultivating produce from these majestic creatures is a practice that the Bedouin and nomadic cultures have been doing for centuries, and something that Lauren Brisbane and her family have been advocates for over the past 12 years through their business, QCamel dairy. On a pocket of fertile land in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland lives a herd of 110 camels, each with their own name and individual personality. “We don’t look at our camels as stock – we see them more as our partners,” explains Lauren. “Our whole philosophy is about kindness.”⁣
