Was advised to go here by the hotel I was staying in and goodness I was not disappointed. Now it is a little way off the Great Ocean Road but it is worth the trip! Walked into a warm greeting and they promptly set up a cheese tasting for us! You get to try every cheese they make - we... More

We eat a lot of Cheese from here and keep buying more. It is always of the highest quality and they offer a great range. We also use their products in our hampers at our accommodation nearby and our guests love it.

Absolutely wonderful place to visit, great cheese, and wonderful garden. It is wonderful to have the down-home country reception without pretension or being overtly 'touristy'. Our lively discussion of Jersey Cows/ AMZ'a made it all worthwhile! Keep the good work going, Can highly recommend.

Such friendly people, such lovely cheese. Free tasting. Learn how cheese is made. Visit early in the day to see production through big glass windows.

Had a nice cheese testing introduced by the very welcoming staff. You can test quite a huge range of cheeses from their own production. We also bought quite a lot of their cheeses to bring with us on the next steps of our way! A full recommendation for cheese lovers!

Free cheese tastings! We had a lovely girl serving us and discussed the different cheeses in detail. I'm pregnant and couldn't try all of the cheeses so I had to watch my husband (with jealously) try the soft cheeses which I heard were amazing. Must do if you are a cheese lover, even if not as there were plenty of... More
