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).

Visited on a sat morning, got one coffee order wrong. My friends did the tasting plate of 7 cheeses for $10, best way or try the cheese instead of the free sample. Goats were around but not up close. Ok to visit for 20-30 mins

Unfortunately due to Covid we were not able to try and of the cheese platters. We bought a couple of the goats cheese and put together a platter at our holiday house. Great location and there were a few goats on-site also.

We loved walking around the grounds and patting the goats, followed by tasting the most beautiful goats cheese platter and pastes with a chai latte (but would skip this part unless you really want warm milk), but loved our visit!

We arrived here within 30 minutes of their closing time and they were still very friendly and helpful and had no issues serving us. The goats are very friendly but beware they are goats, so they will eat anything, including your clothes if you stand close enough to them. We tried a goat cheese tasting plate in their cafe and it was delicious. The happy goats here make very tasty cheese. This is a really relaxing place to visit and I highly recommend it.

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 whilst on the peninsula.
