A little history about Yarra Valley Dairy
Yarra Valley Dairy Persian Fetta was the first product in the Australian marinated cheese market. This benchmark cheese was first created in the 1990's with cheese maker Richard Thomas - inspired by the marinated cheeses of the Middle East & Europe, where brine or oil is used to preserve fresh cheese. The dairy uses the freshest cows milk provided by neighbouring dairy farms and goats milk delivered regularly from the Gippsland region where the natural environment and pastures are more favourable for farming goats.
The majority of the Yarra Valley Dairy cheeses are fresh and soft in characteristic, made in distinctly Italian and French styles, and the range is now growing to include more mature cheeses.
