Blessed Are The Cheese Makers

The Northern Rivers is a famous dairying area that is dominated by the Norco Cooperative in Lismore. It is nice to see a revival of more traditional and artisan farmhouse cheeses. Deb and Sue from Tweed Valley Whey are dedicated and passionate (you would have to be) craftspeople who make a delicious product.    Click here to visit their fantastic website. They sell most of their produce at Farmers Markets on the North Coast but a few retail outlets who understand their product stock it as well. In the Clarence Valley it is Causley's Deli in Yamba.

This is Deb, one of the blessed cheese makers, a very interesting, amusing and passionate speaker. She was speaking at a Wine & Cheese Masterclass at Ender's Olive Farm on Carr's Creek Peninsula.

The wine was supplied by Robert Channon Wines of Stanthorpe and like Deb, Robert was passionate and interesting. His website is here.

  1. That looks like a very enjoyable time!

  2. Love local cheeses. Their phone number is rather catchy, too!

    (your 'click here' line made me smile, too!)

  3. O wow! Heavenly tasting local cheeses like this and with wine close by must be just bliss! When I lived in Tasmania, I always bought the local cheeses in the north! So miss that experience now!

  4. I want to go there right now. :)

  5. Wine and cheese - sign me up, sign me up, sign me up!
