Congratulations to the team at Maleny Cheese for rebuilding, rebranding and reinvigorating their cheese factory and café after the devastating arson attack in September 2018. 

Owners Sara and Markus Bucher, and their daughter Jenn, were thrilled to recently welcome friends, local businesses, council members and the local press to the unveiling of the new logo and a sampling of the delicious cheeses on offer. (Editor’s note: my personal favourite is the Tuscan, which I could have happily devoured all afternoon!)

The café overlooks the cheese and award-winning yoghurt-making facilities. “We are also offering cheese and butter-making workshops and small group-guided cheese tastings,” Sara said. To book, call Sara on 0419 913890.

An impressive four Sunshine Coast dairy processors are proud to be named finalists in the 2020 Australian Grand Dairy Awards. “It must be something in the grass we grow here!” laughed Sara.

Maleny Cheese is a finalist for their Maleny Gourmet Yoghurt Apple and Cinnamon, and in different categories you will find Maleny Dairies, Woombye Cheese and Kenilworth Dairies. 

Well done to all involved, and if you would like to vote for one (or all) of them, visit dairy.com.au/our-programs/australian-grand-dairy-awards, click the link ‘vote now’ and cast your vote! You could win a gourmet dinner for two at a top Australian restaurant.

Welcome back, Maleny Cheese – we’ve missed you!
