Visited here whilst doing the tourist circuit. Cheese range was ok but presented to us by a young lady who didn’t want to be there! Worth a look but it’s a bit cheesy!

We stopped for an afternoon snack and our group had both the ploughman's and cheese platter. Everybody seemed to enjoy their selections. Some very tasty cheeses but as others as have mentioned $65.00 per kilo for most cheeses seemed a bit steep. However the platters...More

Thanks for your review John G. As with all micro food producers the wages are the same even though our output is very small. Boutique wineries have the same problem. Also Australian cheeses can't compete with cheap imports because we have to pasteurise our milk...More

Although cheeses are tasty, I didn't find any of them exceptional enough to justify paying $65 to $70 p/kg for them! Pay less for European imported cheeses!More

Enjoyed trying a variety of hard and soft local cheeses, and various preserves/relishes. All super yummy and available to purchase to take home. Cured meats also available. Wish we’d visited earlier in the day to enjoy their butter cheesecake and coffee!

Cheese is fantastic, the tasting was informative and the selection is adequate. Could diversify and get into feta and ricotta. The shop is small and can be hard to move when a heap of people are in at the same time. A must visit in...More
