Yarra Valley Dairy is part of the property known as “Hubertswood” owned by the Mooney Family. The region in which “Hubertswood” is situated has a long and well established history of dairying. The cheese factory uses the freshest cows milk provided by their neighbouring dairy farms and goats milk delivered regularly from the Gippsland region where the natural environment and pastures are more favourable for farming goats.
Yarra Valley Dairy’s flagship cheese is their Persian Fetta, a wonderful soft and creamy cow’s milk fetta. This unique cheese is made by first placing the freshly made feta in brine for at least two weeks in order to develop its flavour and texture. It is then washed to remove the excess salt before being marinated in oil infused with fresh herbs & spices. Yarra Valley Persian Feta has won a number of awards including; Best in the World – Marinated Feta, London 2001 World Cheese Awards. A cows milk fetta marinated in garlic, fresh thyme, bay leaves, peppercorns and olive oil.
