At Maffra Cheese Co. their philosophy is simple. Great cheese is produced through a synthesis of exceptional farming practice and great cheese making technique. They consider themselves to be farmers first and foremost, because without great milk there cannot be great cheese. This means they understand the science of farming and the way it impacts their craft. They understand the importance of the indigenous rye grasses and clovers and the effect they have on the flavour of their cheeses through maturation.
Maffra Cheese understands how specific cattle breeds provide milk with distinct fat and protein profiles, and how those fats and proteins break down during maturation to produce unique flavours. Because they own and manage their own farm and process milk on site, they are involved with every aspect of the materials used to produce their cheeses, guaranteeing the highest quality products for their customers.
