Awassi Cheesery

We love what we do – living our cheese dream

We love sharing our home/farm with family, friends and our welcomed guests, taking their tastebuds on a journey of absolute bliss, one they will never forget… Being an artisanal producer allows us to create the most exquisite food creations and next-level natural healing products, all harvested off our beautiful farm.

As our beautiful Awassi herd grows, our purpose-built cheesery, milking parlour, and farm outlet is at full production and welcoming guest to share in the tranquillity offered on our beautiful farm.

There is plenty to see and do here at Awassi Cheesery whilst enjoying your cheese platters. Meet the girls (our beautiful Awassi Sheep), take a stroll, play a game of Frisbee Golf on the Orchard course, maybe a game of Botchy on the lawn, or you can pull up a chair under the avocado grove with your bottle of wine and relax.

It’s Not A Day Out Unless You Have Ice Cream!

Introducing Awassi’s Very Own Flavours – Lockyer Valley Ice Cream

Using our Awassi sheep milk and local fruits, David and I have created a lactose free and gluten free range of cool indulgence. Seasonal fruits are the equal taste heroes in these unique ranges. Whilst the concept of combining local fruits and ice cream is not new, when you nurture a product that is pure and free from preservatives and made from local ingredients by locals, that’s
when you create something really special.

We have an ethos of great care and culinary attention in developing our products. With a family background in dairy, cheese making and ice cream it is no wonder we have landed amidst the gourmet world of sheep’s cheese and ice cream.

The family story of dairy production now has a new chapter.

Hello & Welcome

We look forward to sharing our beautiful farm with you. You will arrive as customers and leave as friends…

A little love from our guests.

Delicious cheeses to try in a lovely setting.

"Loved seeing the Awassi sheep being milked (whilst their lambs set up a cacophony of bleating "Muuumm"). A very relaxing lunch tasting the various cheeses under the flowering avocado tree. David and Di are amazingly busy but producing a delicious product. We came home with some cheeses and a jar of their delicious honey.
Well worth the visit on our way home to Brisbane from Toowoomba."

Evening With Owls

"Special Event - Evening with Owls.
A wonderful night, great food/cheese/ice cream all from farm produce. The experience with the Owls only added to an event well worth going to. Host and Hostess and staff were all so friendly."

"We decided to visit Awassi Cheesery spur of the moment. We enjoyed every moment. From the relaxed Rural setting to the stunning avocado trees on the property topped off by the divine cheeses that complimented our byo wine perfectly. I even got the chance to feed a baby sheep. The owners are friendly and accommodating. 5 out of 5 for me."

Gourmet Sheep Cheeses

"Enjoyed our visit to Awassi. We sat under the mature avocado trees and nibbled at the fare. We had to supply our own drinks, tea and coffee are available. Apart from the gravel road, it was a beautiful drive to get there. The team were friendly and knowledgeable and the service was laid back and suited the atmosphere.
It was a fantastic way to spend the day."
