About Us

 

Alexandrina Cheese - Jersey Cows image



Jersey Cows

It all starts each day with rich, creamy milk from eighty (well loved and individually named!) Jersey cows. They are fed on long green clover pasture, grown on the rolling hills of the family farm, nestled on the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia

Handmade

The McCaul family began making cheese in 1902 and third generation Dan McCaul and his family are continuing the tradition of manufacturing premium quality cheeses in the purpose built cheese factory at Mt. Jagged.

Tradition

Using exclusive starter cultures and rennet, the manufacturing process has gone back in time over a hundred years, returning to the traditional methods of cheese making. Our boutique cheeses possess subtle variation in flavour – it is to be enjoyed knowing the seasonal variation of the Jersey cows milk, and the weekly turn of the cheesemakers hands.

Time

The cheese maker waits patiently in the storeroom near the old wooden boards for the cheese to mature before stamping the Alexandrina brand onto the cheeses. This quality check gives a seal of approval to each individual wheel.
