Awassi Cheesery

Taking Cheese to a Whole New Level

Whether you want to eat bespoke cheeses, buy bespoke cheeses or even make bespoke cheese visit Di and Dave Piggott’s Awassi Cheesery. Relax in the avocado grove and indulge in the delicious cheese selections on offer.

Awassi Cheesery is a 'Farmstead Cheesery' by the true definition… "Farmstead cheese, less commonly known as farmhouse cheese, is produced from the milk collected on the same farm where the cheese is produced. Unlike artisan cheese, which may also include milk purchased and transported from off-farm sources, farmstead cheese makers only use milk from animals they raise."

Di’s cheeses include the hero “Grantham”, aptly named after the town Di and Dave call home.  There’s also an Awassi camembert, a pepper pecorino and you can’t beat the tastiest feta atop half a Flagstone Fresh cherry tomato. Yum! Or perhaps you might prefer a labneh? A savoury, cheesy flavour, the Awassi labneh is infused with Coolana Olives’ lemon, rosemary and garlic oil, a chilli lime oil, and even, a blood orange oil.

Awassi cheeses are handcrafted in the full sense of the word, from the paddock to the milking parlour to the cheesery. Every aspect of making the finest cheese is under the watchful eye of the cheese maker.

Di and Dave love what they do and they’re living their cheese dream!
