Terroir and Tradition – The Delights of the Victorian Countryside

Explore the rich French cheese making culture of the Victorian countryside with Long Paddock Cheese. Discover how their unique blend of French and Australian influences produces cheese which is the perfect blend of terroir and tradition. This is an inspiring story of how French savoir faire and Australian natural produce come together in Castlemaine, and of the team dedicated to sharing their passion and knowledge with the community.
