About
Kenilworth is a small rural township in the beautiful Mary Valley. Part of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland its rolling hills and lush green pasture make this ideal dairy country. The Kenilworth Cheese Factory was purchased from the Kraft Corporation in 1990 by a group of former employees who created a factory that specialised in quality hand crafted cheeses. Recently the factory was purchased by the Cochrane family, 6th generation local dairy farmers, who are determined to enhance the tradition of quality dairy production. Utilising the milk from their own herd, creating the Kenilworth Dairies brand and investing heavily in the Kenilworth factory has ensured the tradition of udderly delicious dairy products will continue to flourish in the Mary Valley. There is a lot happening at the factory with renovations and with the possible cheese making work shops (TBA). Open 7 days a week 9am - 4pm for Coffee, Lunch or Snack. Hope to see you at Kenilworth Dairies.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I absolutely love the produce of Kenilworth Dairies but they have no respect for their customers. Yesterday we drove out of our way to go there specially to buy some yoghurt and they had already closed before the closing time on their website. And it has happened to us a few times, which makes it very, very frustrating. We get there 20 minutes before closing time and the staff say, sorry, we have already packed up. I am not sure if the Management are aware. If a business advertises a closing time - listed on their website and on their front gate - the closing time should be honoured and customers should be served up until that advertised time. It is disrespectful to your customers to close before that time.

We had already had lunch elsewhere in Kenilworth, so didn't get to try the meals or coffee at the dairy factory. Their $12 cheese platters did sound good value though. And there is also a van selling ice-creams at the site. What we did do check out was their surprisingly large range of cheeses, many of the gourmet variety. Made lots of purchases, too. For a small factory, they seem very productive. Other local produce including honey, jams and condiments are also on sale.

We decided to have lunch at this establishment via the cafe that is located on the premises.
Whilst waiting for our meal we perused the cheeses and wines on offer.
Unbelievable variety of cheeses and in the end we bought a pack of 4.
For lunch we had the ploughman’s grazing platter which was fantastic, even though it took quite a while to be tabled.
Certainly worth visiting if you are passing through Kenilworth.

On my visit this time to the dairy, I was pleased to see a good product range from sauces, cheeses, yoghurts and so on.

There are a good variety of cheeses from mature to different flavors that I have not come across in shops.

I was pleased with my purchase of more than half a dozen blocks of a variety of flavors and the cooler bag (I had forgotten mine at home) 🤣.I'm looking forward to my next visit. Enjoy

Absolute waste of time, staff not friendly at all, to busy gossiping with each othe. The brochure that you pick up on your travels is false, there was no were to relax and indulge in food and their is no seasonal menue, no rest rooms you need to go to the park across the road, total waste of time, get better service if you want their cheese from the supermarkets

Wow! So much yummy food to choose from. Different home made ice creams, yoghurts, cheeses and sauces to choose from. Lunch was the Ploughman's lunch which was so delicious. They are the few who knew how to make a proper latte and their milk made all the difference. I wish I could visit every day. So glad I watched a travel show which brought me here.

Really busy but lovely spot for a coffee and to grab some supplies. The $10 cheese tasting box is okay but don’t forget to ask for some crackers to go with it for an extra $2. The coffee is merlo which I love and it was made perfectly and came out quickly. I loved how there is so much produce to choose from and they have 900g tubs of yoghurt that are close to their best before dates for only $3.50 so stocked up on these are they taste amazing. Definitely worth popping in.

If serving a paying customer is such a terrible undertaking, I prefer to take my money elsewhere ... which all eight of us did. LAZY & DISINTERESTED STAFF - CUSTOMERS ARE AN INTRUSION TO THEIR LIVES
