Our cheesemakers create delicious farmhouse cheeses from both cows and goats milk.
Reflecting the traditional farmhouse cheeses of France and Italy, most or of our cheeses are fresh and soft in style. Our cheese factory uses the freshest cows milk from nearby Yarra Valley dairy farms and goats milk from the neighbouring region of Mansfield in the foothills of Victoria’s High Country Alps. All the fresh milk that arrives at the Yarra Valley Dairy is used for cheese production in our factory by our team of over 30 staff who work around the clock producing our award winning, high quality cheeses.
All of our fresh cheeses are made in the style of the soft farmhouse cheeses of Europe. They are light and full of moisture creating a fresh, delicate mouth feel. Our curds are a good, creamy base for the fresh herbs we add to them, boosting their flavour and usability. The food grade ash we dust on our pyramid doesn't impart any flavour, but adds a lovely, light effervescent finish.
