Meredith Dairy is located approximately 50 miles west of Melbourne in the state of 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. Each 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. Enjoy 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.
