Our Cheesery

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.

Our FARM

Our girls milk on a 2 to 3 year lactation and we run a split herd with one herd kidding every year, this enables us to have milk everyday of the year! The shed is an 8 aside herringbone and is designed to be very gentle on the milk. Goat milk is much more fragile in composition then cows milk and is best handled very gently.

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.
