Say Cheese

Eighteen months ago Karen Deeth (right) and Ross Burnett opened Granite Belt Dairy Farmhouse Cheese just north of Stanthorpe and have been smiling ever since.

Public demand has been so great that they've grown from being open at weekends, to now opening seven days a week. From Thursday 26 February 2009 they'll be open day from 10am till 4pm. From 30 purebred Jersey cows they produce about five tonnes of cheese a year, which pops up all over the place on the Granite Belt. But, if you want to visit the source, you can enjoy a cheese platter and a glass of local wine or coffee and homemade cheesecake in their new licensed courtyard cafe. For more - click.
