The Cheesemaking Workshop & Deli is every foodie’s best kept secret between Sydney and Brisbane. Located at the original banana plantation, the homestead with the gorgeous verandah has a sweeping backdrop of the Coffs hinterland. Welcome to the cheese heaven.

We offer all things cheese; from the largest selection of Australian and International cheeses, to the most exquisite gifts, intriguing cheese supplies and carefully curated workshops teaching you how to make cheese at home.


Cheesemaking workshops

We’ve developed a range of practical and easy-to-follow cheesemaking workshops. We like to say that we take the mystery out of making cheese. Our workshops range from the exciting one-hour experiences to the full day advanced cheesemaking options.

Imagine making your own Halloumi. Learn how to make Ricotta in under an hour. Make your own Fetta and season it just how you like it! We cover it all, from dreamy mascarpone, to brie, cheddar, and blue vein. Join us in person or now online and learn for yourself how easy cheesemaking can be.


Cheesemaking supplies

We have the biggest selection of cheese supplies for every aspiring home cheesemaker. Think equipment, cultures, rennet and kitchen tools just to name a few.


Our deli is the largest on the Coffs Coast with cheeses from around Australia and the world on a seasonal rotation. We always have something new and exciting to delight your taste buds.


Looking for a gift has never been easier! We’ve curated the most exquisite and sought-after cheese supplies and gourmet products; from cheese boards, salt and pepper grinders, to gift hampers and cheese and wine pairing boxes.
