Description

The north west of Tasmania is home to some of the world’s freshest air, cleanest water and most fertile soil.  This cool temperate climate of Tasmanian is ideal for slow growing pastures which are naturally packed with nutrition.

Ashgrove Cheese only use the freshest and creamiest milk possible.  Their milk is supplied by cows that graze on a natural pasture diet, resulting in milk that is pure in flavour. The majority of their milk comes from the Ashgrove Farms where it is delivered straight from the dairy to the factory.  These cows are a special breed of Holstein, Jersey and Friesian, which produce a creamier, naturally sweeter milk.

Ashgrove Cloth Matured Cheddar is matured for a minimum of 15 months, and is made using traditional artisan cheddaring techniques. It is slightly dry and flaky with a nutty, salty and somewhat spicy flavour profile. Each cheese is wrapped in traditional cheese cloth and the surface is rubbed and turned weekly during affinage, developing the cheeses natural rustic looking rind and musty-earthy aroma.
