Growing up in Melbourne and Geelong respectively, Sue and Bruce worked in the city for several years whilst living on a hobby farm in Kilmore. Loving the farm convinced them to go farming full time, so they bought a small place in Katunga milking 75 cows. Four years and three children later they decided to move to a larger farm.
Locheilan was purchased in 1984, milking 123 cows. Gradually developing the pastures by laser grading the land and resowing with newer grass species.
Their multi award winning cheeses are always a favourite, especially the Bruce's Blue and Locheilan Triple Brie!
Other styles include:Broken Blue; sharp and spicy when young, developing a lovely soft texture with piquant flavours as it ages. Kulindi; a semi-hard cheese matured for a minimum of 4 months in the style of an English Cheshire crumbly. Fetta; gold medal winning soft and creamy fetta, made from whole milk collected in the morning and stored in brine.
Meet and talk cheese with Sue at the monthly Bendigo Community Farmers Market, the 2nd Saturday of each month at Sidney Myers Place, Pall Mall.
Always a crowd pleaser, select from a range of delicious hand made cheeses.
