Overview

We are Stanthorpe's original cheese factory. We make cheese from our herd of Jersey cows and sell it in the on-farm shop, open every day (except Christmas, Boxing, Good Friday and local show holiday in January). We also stock a huge range of local products for the perfect picnic or accompaniment for your cheese platter. Our licensed cafe which serves produce from our farm is open 7 days for lunch.

Although cheeses are tasty, I didn't find any of them exceptional enough to justify paying $65 to $70 p/kg for them! Pay less for European imported cheeses!More

Enjoyed trying a variety of hard and soft local cheeses, and various preserves/relishes. All super yummy and available to purchase to take home. Cured meats also available. Wish we’d visited earlier in the day to enjoy their butter cheesecake and coffee!

Great selection of cheeses, sauces and cured meats to taste. Some of the cheeses were very good. Have to go back to try some of their milkshakes. They looked great!
