Handcrafted Farmhouse Goat Cheese
Main Ridge Dairy is the only Farmhouse Cheesery and Dairy located on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. We pride ourselves on producing the best quality goats milk daily, then crafting it by hand into delicious award-winning cheeses right here on the farm our family calls home.
come and experience our award-winning cheese
Join us at our Cheesery on the farm for a cheese tasting at the counter or soak up the beautiful surroundings with a cheese platter and a glass of local wine or beer. We are a family and dog friendly venue with loads of lawn, indoor and outdoor seating and goats to watch frolicking in the paddocks. We offer a range of cheese platters, wine, beer, cider, tea, coffee, milkshakes, spiders and a range of cookies and treats.
a true paddock to plate experience
Our ‘girls’ are milked twice a day every day on the farm just behind the factory. The clean rich pastures growing from the fertile red volcanic soils outside the factory are converted into sweet fresh milk that is the source of our inspiration.
WHAT IS Farmhouse Goat Cheese?
An authentic local flavour
By definition ‘Farmhouse Cheese’ is cheese produced only from the milk collected on the farm where the cheese is made. Unlike ‘artisan’ cheese where milk can be sourced from multiple farms from far and wide, Farmhouse cheesemakers only use milk from the animals they raise. The result is that Farmhouse cheeses offer consistently unique flavours owing to the farm’s local terroir.

Main Ridge Dairy is currently closed to the general public. Our milking herd is taking a break before they become pregnant, kid again and produce their beautiful milk for our cheeses. We hope to be back open by late spring/early summer.
