Having enjoyed quite a bit of their cheese in the past and since we're in the area, we decided to drop in.
If you're one of these types that expect free food, you're in the wrong place. Sample plates are available at $5 or $10 and this is what you can expect for $10
Going clockwise from the arrow, we tasted
Portsea Picnic (goat) & Sorrento Picnic (cow) - both are semi-hard cheese, the Sorrento Picnic is more mature
Misty Valley (goat) & Merricks Mist (cow) - both are Normandy styled soft white mould cheese
Flinders Fetish (goat), Somers Soft (goat) & Coolart Soft (cow) - these are feta styles, sold in jars filled with oils and various spice/herbs
Arthurs Peak (goat) - farmhouse style, pyramid shape, rolled in dried winter savory
Mountain Goat Blue (goat) & Granny's Blue (cow) - the mountain goat had a really unusual tang and spice that seemed to just keep developing, both are creamy styles.
What you'll get on your sample plate will depend on the season and availability.
