This Jersey dairy farm located in Mount Jagged, near Mount Compass, on the Fleurieu Peninsula, 8km south of Mt Compass, is where the McCaul family produces award-wining hard style cheeses and luxury dairy products, using high quality, rich creamy jersey milk.
The range uses traditional methods supported with the combined knowledge of four generations of dairy farmers and cheese-makers.
Visitors can taste and buy up to 20 dairy products from the farm factory and observe cheese being made usually on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Ask about tutored vertical tastings of aged cheeses, from 3 months to 18 months, to show off seasonal differences.
Doe-eyed jerseys cows often mill in nearby paddocks as you watch the cheese-making; stop for a country lunch platter, a shake or an Alexandrinashire Tea.
