Overview
More
Main Ridge Dairy is a goat dairy and farmhouse cheesery. We offer cheese tastings, platters, local wine, tea and coffee and dairy tours some Saturdays (bookings essential). Milking 200 goats on our 130 acre farm, our girls are all named and well cared for. Our dairy was built to be gentle on the milk and all this effort results in beautiful sweet milk of the highest quality. After milking our fresh milk is turned into a range of handcrafted cheeses all produced on the property. Our cheeses include a fresh delicate curd, gooey and decadent white mould, an aged table cheese with a nutty sweet flavor and our very hard to resist award winning marinated chevre (Gold Medal Melbourne Specialist Cheese Show).
