Maffra Cheese Company is located on a dairy farm in the heart of Gippsland's dairy country. Using fresh milk provided by the farm's Holstein Friesian cows, Maffra's cheeses are handmade to traditional methods and carefully matured to their optimal age. Owned and run by the diminutive dynamo, Ferial Zekiman, Maffra Cheese Company has a reputation in the food service industry for producing some of Australia's best cheddar.


The award-winning Maffra Cloth-Aged Cheddar exhibits the classic cheddar flavour profile; sweet and rich up front with complex after tones and a grassy aroma. The texture is moist, and slightly crumbly. Each cheese is ripened under cloth to allow a thin rind to form and carefully matured for up to two years.
