Good Honest Cheese.
Driven by Flavour.

Our Cheese

When it comes to cheese, we always put flavour first

We believe the best way to produce the tastiest, most full-flavoured cheese is to take a hands-on approach and make small batches. So that’s what we do – open-vat cheesemaking. By blending a traditional approach with our own innovative techniques, our cheesemakers can touch, see and taste the cheese at every stage of the process, and make any adjustments they deem fit along the way. How artisan.


Indulgently smooth and sweet


Hard, sweet and savoury


A mix of sweet and salty to soft and fluffy


Classic and mature, full of flavour


Deliciously mild and delicate

Our Story

Cheese is our ‘thing’. It’s what we know. It’s what we love. And it’s what we do best.

Based in the beautiful town of Geraldine at the foothills of the Southern Alps, Talbot Forest Cheese was established at the turn of the millennium.

Starting out small, we began making 10 tonnes of cheese a year at our Artisan Factory in Geraldine. But as word got out about our cheese, demand grew and expansion was necessary.
