From the Fausto Family Farm, Danny Fausto came up with the crazy idea that carabaos do not only belong in the fields to plow, but that the milk from the carabao would be more nutritious than cow's milk and more profitable for the farmers of the Talavera Dairy Cooperative.
DVF Dairy Farm is located at Talavera, Nueva Ecija, only 130 km north of Manila. A very ideal location, far enough to be spared from the pollution of the metropolis, and near enough to assure that milk can be brought to you daily, fresh from the farm.
Nueva Ecija is known as the rice granary of the Philippines. As such there is an abundance of forage, which helps ensure a very well fed stock. The Central Luzon State University (CLSU), one of the best agricultural schools in the country, and the Philippine Carabao Center (PCC), a government agency providing technical and veterinary assistance to farmers, are both located in Munoz, Nueva Ecija, some 20 kilometers from Talavera.
This has provided us a great lead as veterinarians and technical assistance are practically in our backyard. This notwithstanding, the DVF Dairy Farm maintains it own technical people, microbiologists, chemists and food technologists to make sure that the milk brought to your table meets the Bureau of Food and Drugs (BFAD) standards for quality dairy products.
