Woombye Camembert is an award winning cheese made from Jersey and Friesian milk.
Woombye Camembert is handmade using fresh local milk. As each wheel matures, the cultures added to this milk create a soft, silky textured paste. Every wheel is inspected and turned by hand each day. This Australian Camembert may be enjoyed when bloomy, mild and young, or when fully ripe, close to the best before date, for those who prefer a stronger, more traditional brassica flavour.
Woombye Cheese was founded by Graeme and Karen Paynter in 2013 on the Sunshine Coast hinterland surrounded by rolling green hills, creeks and bushland. Pursuing their dream of making cheese, after fast paced corporate careers, they chose this beautiful, rural location to begin a new life. They were drawn to the lush pastures of the surrounding countryside knowing they would be able to source milk, fresh, every day from the herds of Jersey and Friesian cows at neighbouring dairy farms.
