Distinctive regional cheeses handmade on the family farm from the pure fresh milk of our own ewes, grazed in the pristine rolling lush hills of South Gippsland. The premium qualities of creamy sheep milk create cheeses of rounded, elegant flavor and delicate texture.
Second generation cheesemakers Burke & Bronwyn Brandon developed the Prom Country label in 2012 to showcase the regional origin of our sheep milk. Cow’s milk from a neighbor’s dairy also features in our range of traditional cheeses including natural-rinded hard cheese, soft cheese, marinated and blues.
