Tarago River Cheese Company, Neerim South

NEERIM SOUTH | Tarago River Cheese Company is a Gippsland based producer of some very delicious cheeses. They operate their own free-range farm with over 400 dairy cows, and regularly rotate their crops with the seasons. So you know that you’re getting the freshest, highest quality product around.

The exact cheeses produced at any given time are driven by the seasons, giving rise to the term “farmhouse” cheese. The result is cheese that you’ll want to be trying if you’re in the area.

You can visit the factory to purchase direct on Fridays from 11:00 am to 4:00pm. On offer are whole, half, and quarter wheels, and a few tasting packs. You can also purchase the cheese packs on the “Click For Vic” website. For smaller servings, you can find cheese wedges at local independent grocers.

I highly recommend one of the tasting packs, but if you can only purchase one cheese, my favourite is the “Jensen’s Red”. Named after cheese maker Laurie Jensen, is an intense, full flavoured wash rind cheese that continues to mature and develop long past it’s best before date.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
