Bruny Island Cheese Company

1807 Main Road, Great Bay, Bruny Island, Tasmania, 03 6260 6353

Bruny Island Cheese Co. was started by Nick Haddow, after he spent 10 years working with specialist cheese makers in many different countries around the world. He and his partner Leonie The Tree House Accomodation Bruny Island Tasmaniasettled on Bruny Island in Southern Tasmania in 2001 to start making cheese for themselves. Nick is a traditionalist, who recognises that great cheese was made for centuries before modern technology played a role and believes passionately in the old way of making and maturing cheese. For him, cheese making is a pursuit of integrity and flavour.

The cheeses Bruny Island Cheese Co. makes are very much the product of Nick’s travels and training throughout the great cheese producing regions of France, Italy, Spain and the UK. They are the cheeses he loves to make and eat. Although Nick and his team are inspired by the artisan cheeses from their travels but they do not seek to copy them. Instead, he wants to make cheeses that are connected to their environment… cheeses with a distinctly Tasmanian character.
