Products Crafted from Cow Milk

Black Cow Cheese Wrap | Nimbin Valley Dairy
Black Cow

Size: 150g
Form: whole wheel
Serving Suggestion: table cheese

Black Cow is a bloomy white mould cheese crafted from cow milk with the addition of cream, in a modern style. It is rolled in vine leaf ash prior to the growth of the white mould and the result is a spectacularly mottled black and white rind. When young the paste has a chalky texture which matures into a very creamy and soft cheese with a rich buttery yellow centre and has a striking line of black ash though the middle.

Crisp Japanese lagers or Stone & Wood Pacific Ale are an excellent pair, as is a clean fruity cider. The rind and middle ash layer makes this cheese a striking centerpiece of a cheese platter.

Made under our Byron Bay label, our butter uses the freshest cream which we culture for 48hrs before churning to produce the butteriest most flavoursome butter you've ever tasted!  Perfect for baking, making a simple pasta sauce or simply smothering on fresh bread. Simple. Delicious.

Monte Nardi Wrap | Nimbin Valley Dairy
Monte Nardi (150g)

Size: 150g
Form: wedge
Serving Suggestion: table cheese, cooking

monte nardi is Australia's first truly original regional cheese. Early Italian settlers to the Northern Rivers made and matured this cheese under their houses, using their own milk; it made an excellent table cheese at only a few weeks of age.  As it matured, becoming more flavoursome and harder, it was grated and used on pasta dishes.

Paul spent time at the local Italian retirement village listening to their stories and how they made this cheese.  So happy to share their skills and knowledge, Paul went home, followed their detailed recipes and monte nardi was created!

Mount Nardi (Monte = Mountain) rises behind our farm and stands sentinel over the region, visible from the coast to the Great Divide; the Nardi family is one of the pioneering Italian families in Nimbin with many descendants still in the area.

We make this cheese as a tribute to, and celebration of, all the good things that cultural diversity has brought to our region.
