Indulge on Cheese in Pyengana
While there are many quality dairy farms spread across the island, the 130-year old Pyengana Dairy Farm comes up trumps. Producing handcrafted cheese and dairy products in the heart of the lush Pyengana Valley, visitors can watch curiously through the farmhouse windows to see how the good stuff is created. The tradition of crafting cheese at Pyengana Dairy Farm dates to the 1880s. That tells us that the process has been skillfully perfected over the years. Visitors can sit in the sunshine of the farmhouse paddocks with a gourmet cheese board as you admire the rolling hills stretching out into the distance. From there you can also spot the farm’s black and white spotted cows which roam amongst the green grass.
Another top spot for cheese in Tasmania is The Bruny Island Cheese Company which serves up hand-made traditional cheese. Enjoy an indulgent cheese platter outdoors, which changes its offerings day to day, surrounded by calming eucalyptus trees. If you time it well, you may even smell the wafting aroma of freshly baked bread escaping from the kitchen.
