Cheese Please!

Our dairy products come from Country Valley in Picton NSW where the Fairley family have built a factory right next to their dairy and bottle their own milk and use it along with milk from other local dairies to make their cheese, yoghurt and cream products. We stock Country Valley premium full cream, premium lite milk and Organic lite and full cream. We use and stock Country Valley fresh cream, and natural and plain yoghurt, no additives.

Here’s what happy customer’s say about Country Valley’s products:

“Hi, we read about your milk in the SMH Good Living and headed over to Bondi to try it. We love it. It froths the milk beautifully and the taste is fantastic.”

Cheese
Did you know that cheese is seasonal? There are three things that impact on the optimal flavour of cheese – the breeding and milk production of the animal, the food the animal is eating and the amount of time the cheese is aged. We source the best cheese in season which means that stock is always changing.

Depending on the season we stock:
