Stanthorpe Cheese (formerly Granite Belt Dairy) is a great place to have lunch while you’re out exploring the northern end of the Granite Belt. Open 10-4, 7 days a week, who could resist the cheeses made from the milk of such beautiful creatures?
This is what Karen & Rosco have to say about the cheeses produced from milk from their lovely ladies.
Our artisan cheeses are made from a single herd of pure bred Jersey cows from one farm. This makes our cheeses totally unique and seasonally different and interesting. If it’s raining and the grass is rich and luscious, the cheese reflects this with it’s bright yellow colour and earthy aroma.In winter, when there’s frost on the ground every morning and sometimes snow, the cows are cold and being fed hay. This results in cheeses more intense in flavour and lower in yield.
