About Main Ridge Dairy
Main Ridge Dairy is a goat dairy and farmhouse cheesery. We offer cheese tastings, platters, local wine, tea and coffee and dairy tours some Saturdays (bookings essential). Milking 200 goats on our 130 acre farm, our girls are all named and well cared for. Our dairy was built to be gentle on the milk and all this effort results in beautiful sweet milk of the highest quality. After milking our fresh milk is turned into a range of handcrafted cheeses all produced on the property. Our cheeses include a fresh delicate curd, gooey and decadent white mould, an aged table cheese with a nutty sweet flavor and our very hard to resist award winning marinated chevre (Gold Medal Melbourne Specialist Cheese Show).

Very cute goats in bush pens, ducks ambling around the grounds and a variety of inside and outside seating so you can enjoy the stunning goat cheeses. The taste plate was a delicious sample of seven cheeses. Larger plates would work for a light lunch. A must do place to enjoy

Great cheese and you can see and touch the goats. Lots of shade on the side lawn. There is a lot of goats in different paddocks. Great place to take the kids

Visited yesterday and absolutely loved the cheese and, of course, the baby goats. Picturesque views and friendly, attentive staff. A beautiful start to our day at the Mornington Peninsula. Should have purchased more cheese, but..... that just means we will have to come back
