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 marinated cheeses are made with a fresh cheese as the base. This is then marinated in an olive oil blend and a combination of fresh herbs and spices or other flavoursome additions such as garlic, golden shallots, roasted capsicum, lemon rind or olives – depending on which cheese we are creating.
