Our cheesemaker Jack creates delicious farmhouse cheeses from both cows and goats milk.
Most of our cheese are fresh, soft style cheeses made in a style that reflects the farmhouse cheese of France and Italy. The cheese factory uses the freshest cows milk from nearby Yarra Valley dairy farms and goats milk from the neighbouring Victorian region of Gippsland. 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 factory staff who work around the clock producing our award winning cheeses.
All of our fresh cheeses are made in the soft farmhouse cheese tradition. They are light and full of moisture and create a delicate mouth feel. The curds are a good, creamy base for the fresh herbs we add to them to boost their flavour and usability. The food grade ash we dust on our pyramid doesn't impart any flavour, but adds a lovely, light effervescence to the surface texture.
