Printable Cheese Note

Imported spruce bark belt which wraps the cheese isn’t just visual; they hold the young cheese in shape while imparting subtle woody notes to the flavour profile. What begins as a mild grassy flavour intensifies developing earthier, distinctive mushroom (almost meaty) characters as it ages. Organic milk from a mixed herd of Friesian, Jersey and Australian Dairy Shorthorn cattle is the foundation of Long Paddock cheese. Similarly, to other soft, surface-ripened cheeses, it also excels as a whole baked cheese.

A little history about Long Paddock

Julie and Ivan Larcher recently relocated to Castlemaine, Victoria from Limoges, France with the encouragement of Alison Lansley (Australian Specialist Cheesemakers’ Association) and Holy Goat’s Carla Meurs and Ann-Marie Monda. Years of experience making cheese and consulting have informed their considered production at every stage. From careful monitoring of herd health and milking through their small-batch cheesemaking process and maturation, nothing is left to chance.

Located at The Mill, Castlemaine - a hub for creatives in a range of fields - their site houses production facilities and a much-heralded Cheese School.


Goes well with

Dessert wines such as Sauternes, Pennyweight Gold or other stickies, fortified wines

When young it has a fresh, clean flavour & bright lactic tang. As it ages, the fudgy interior softens while developing distinctive funky flavour notes. And don't get us started on how good the cultured butter is ...
