Since beginning cheesemaking on the farm in September 2018 we have made it our mission to oversee every step of our pasture-to-plate produce.
Made by Norma in our on-farm “cheese dairy”, using traditional techniques, our cheese is made seasonally from March to October while our cows are outdoors, enjoying a grass diet. Our cheese is carefully produced and gently aged to develop a firm yet delicately creamy texture and a full, approachable flavour. It is available in pre-packaged wedges, complete 4.5kg roundels and cut to order.
In the short time since launching in May 2019 our cheese has won numerous awards.
