BEHIND THE CHEESE

Sustained quality in cheese production is the hallmark of our cheese maker, Barry Charlton. This is proudly echoed in our extensive tally of awards since 2007 when two driven cheese-lovers, Barry and his partner, Cheryl, embarked on their vision to establish an artisan cheese company. This vision was enhanced by their connection with local Mossvale Park and their proud family heritage in South Gippsland, Victoria.

Coupled with these factors are Barry’s  40 years of experience in cheese making and his unique brand of creativity. The overall result allows Barry to intuitively read the conditions associated with handling a natural product and so develop distinctive styles of cheese.

Our experimentation has extended into non-bovine products from goat and buffalo milk with outstanding reaction from both wholesalers and the general public alike. Buoyed by our success and the resulting market pressure, a timely meeting of like-minded producers has culminated in a state-of the-art cheese facility being constructed in Fish Creek, South Gippsland- our new home in 2015.

Here at Fish Creek, we are reflecting on our past and the lessons learnt in establishing our place in the Australian dairy industry. With each new goal the focus of our staff is always to maintain and raise the level of quality to higher standards. With this in mind, we are fortunate to have such dedicated staff and family members as our support base.

These lessons we take forward into our expanding future production and continue to be……..

……daring in the way we culture!
