From the heart of the Southern Highlands, Pecora Dairy is the only exclusive working pure East Friesian sheep dairy in Australia. Inspired by the Pyrenean classics, their range of award-winning farmhouse artisan products are true to style, sophisticated and clean on the palate.

Pecora Dairy Yarrawa is Australia's first non-cooked raw milk cheese and is an expression of the entire Pecora farming system. It is named after the indigenous word for Robertson's unique cool climate rainforest. Macro factors like soil, pasture and season give this cheese its provenance in time and place, but so do the prevailing seasonal micro-flora which is encouraged to grow within the cheese and upon its natural rind, over a minimum of three months. Only very simple starter cultures are used in order to give these indigenous yeasts and moulds space to express themselves in the cheese. Yarrawa is unmistakably reminiscent of Pyrenean/Basque sheep milk cheeses. It has a supple paste that hints of butter, cashews, caramel and grass. A complete expression of the Pecora farm, from the soil season, pasture and lactation cycle.
