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 Rubicon Red is a Red Leicester style of cheese. The name Rubicon Red was adopted by the Bennett families of Ashgrove in honour of the Rubicon River that flows through Elizabeth Town and forms part of the boundary for several of the Ashgrove Cheese properties. Produced using full cream milk it has slightly higher moisture content than cheddar. The flavour is sweet and mellow and the texture can be slightly flaky. The boldness of the colour makes Rubicon Red an attractive addition to any cheese platter. It is also a good melting cheese.
