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 Bush Pepper Cheddar is infused with Tasmanian native pepper harvested wild from Tasmanian native forests, which creates a spicy rather than peppery flavour. Its texture is firm and will crumble with age. The colour of the peppercorns also varies throughout. A Lancashire base ensures superior melting characteristics. Perfect when crumbled into soups, melted over dishes or grilled on top of steak.
