Me and my partner stopped here on the way back to melbourne. Wonderful little place with friendly staff.
Their cheese tasting platter was a real treat and we grabbed some cheese for home but unfortunately we couldn't take any of their milk with us.

Would reccomend dropping by if you're in the area.

Thank Scoot M

Your cafe looks like a caravan, your cheese has no flavour what are you trying to sell!!??

Your cheese has no maturity... awful place!

Thank you for your expression of our business ,All our cheeses have a "best by Date"on them which is close to a good maturity we suggest they are best by that date for those who want a greater flavor . If we were in Europe people pay the highest price for those type of cheeses ready to eat - lessor immature cheeses are sold cheaper because the purchasers have to take them home to mature.It is unfortunate that we sell so much cheese we find it hard to get anywhere near full maturity to sell them.Hard to believe our cheeses have no flavor when we do sell so much of them.

As part of our Great Ocean Road Trip we stopped here to have a look at the cheese. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about all the cheeses and we were able to taste a fair few which helped us decide which ones we were going to buy! They also had amazing gelato too of which we had to try. You could taste how creamy it was. Highly recommend coming here.
