Woombye Cheese Company
Fresh, handcrafted cheese made in one of this country’s most beautiful regions.
At Woombye Cheese Company they are passionate about cheese and the Sunshine Coast hinterland is the perfect place to make cheese, with its panoramic vistas of rolling green hills, creeks and bushland. This lush setting makes for happy cows; and happy cows produce the purest milk.
All their milk comes from small local farms and is collected daily by their local milk supplier, pasteurised and then delivered to their factory in Woombye fresh every day. They create and produce all their cheese by hand, using traditional methods with care and experience.
Originally founded by Graeme and Karen Paynter in 2013, Woombye Cheese Company has grown and expanded their range over the years as customers all over Australia have supported and shared their passion for handmade, artisan cheeses.
Since their first batch, our range has grown to now include Camembert, Triple Cream Brie, Blackall Gold (a delicious washed rind cheese), Marinated Persian Feta in two flavours, Vintage Cheddar and of course their flagship cheese Truffle Triple Cream Brie. They are proud to say their cheeses can be found on the menus of some of Australia’s top restaurants and in some top retail outlets across Australia.
Although their founder Graeme is no longer with us, to this day, Woombye Cheese Company is still 100% family owned and is now managed and run by Karen Paynter with her sister and brother-in-law Sandra Cadby and Barry Cadby. They now carry on Graeme’s dream and passion every day which is the heart of Woombye Cheese Company and they are backed by a fantastic team based in their factory in West Woombye.
Creating beautiful cheese is our passion. Join them on their journey in the Destination Food Pavilion at site U716 during the 2018 Farm Fantastic Expo
