Flocking to the cheese shop
Posted on : 18 March 2021
With 63 million sheep in Australia it's only natural that we milk them and turn their mild and creamy milk into some of the finest cheese you’ve ever tasted. Sheep milk is the most nutritious milk in the world and is ideal for cheese production as it contains double the amount of solids compared to cow milk. Haven't tried any sheep milk cheese yet? It's probably best to start with the best - Pecora Dairy Yarrawa was recently named Champion Cheese of Show at the Sydney Royal Cheese & Dairy Produce Show, with the judges impressed by the butter, caramel, grass and cashew hints and the obvious effects of the light-handed approach to cheesemaking. The hand-crafted ewes milk cheese Yarrawa was Australia's first uncooked raw milk cheese and has undoubtedly set the benchmark for all who follow.
Pecora Dairy, in Robertson, the Green Heart of the Southern Highlands, is an artisan sheep milk dairy and cheesery run by Michael and Cressida Cains. Their incredible range of cheeses are available from Pecora Dairy Cheese Shop & Providore in Robertson, online, and at a range of cheese specialty stockists along the east coast.
