Victoria, Australia. Meredith began as a farm focused on beef, lamb and wool
production. After the sheep and wool industries declined in the 1990’s, the
Meredith farm had to reinvent itself. Owners Sandy and Julie Cameron studied
sheep and goat cheesemaking, eventually investing in a farmstead dairy
facility. They purchased goats and additional sheep and installed multiple
milking platforms. They now share the supply load with two other farmers on
nearby sites. Meredith Dairy makes a point to be as self-sustainable as
possible, growing animal fodder and bedding straw onsite, feeding cheese whey
to their cattle and returning manure to soil as fertilizer.
day, cheese is made using their freshly-collected sheep and goat’s milk. After
the fresh cheese is formed, it is marinated in a blended extra virgin olive
oil, garlic, black pepper and fresh thyme. The result is extraordinarily
creamy, tangy, clean and well-balanced. This tasty mixture is packed in an
11-ounce retail-ready glass jar.
Marinated Sheep & Goat Cheese spread on your favorite bread, serve
alongside grilled vegetables or add to salad greens. The reserve marinating oil
makes a great salad dressing base, as well.
