Prom Country Cheese is owned and run by the Brandon family from our fertile farm in the beautiful hills of South Gippsland. Here our focus is producing sheep milk for cheesemaking in the small cheese rooms in the paddock above the dairy. We are involved in the entire process from growing the pastures, to breeding and milking, handcrafting the cheese then proudly presenting the final products to you.

Our cheesemaking journey started in the mid 1990's as Red Hill Cheese, adding the Prom Country label when we realised sheep cheese was our destiny. Today we continue to make both cheese ranges.

The people behind the products :

Bronwyn Brandon has the special touch with animal care, seeing to lamb rearing and milking. Bronwyn ensures that all have the best nutrition including free choice of natural minerals to maintain health. This extends to people also, with training as a chef, she has a passion for country cooking and is just at home in the kitchen. With Italian heritage, Bronwyn has found all her favorite cheeses are from sheep milk!

Burke Brandon is a second generation cheese maker, learning the craft from father Trevor after a career in farming. With a keen interest in biology, knowing how nature works in the paddock proved the perfect grounding for understanding how cultures grow in a living cheese. Cheesemaking experience in France, Italy and UK, plus regular industry seminars continue to hone his skills in a complex science.

Burke and Bronwyn both studied farm management at Glenormiston Agricultural College in Western Victoria. Their children Michael & Katrina are the biggest fans of Prom Country Cheeses, playing important roles of taste testing, and are often found serving their favorites to customers.

Trevor Brandon's background in teaching microbiology led him to experiment with cheese at home, then ultimately founding Red Hill Cheese, where hundreds of cheese lovers have learned home cheesemaking. Trevor is a pioneer of specialist cheese, creating unique concepts to match Mornington Peninsula wines.

Jan Brandon has a broad depth of experience with all things cheese. A family history in dairying goes back to her Grandfather's dairy near Brisbane in the 1800's. Jan's organisational skills ensure the right cheese goes to the best home.

‚ÄčOur Vision : We strive to create traditional cheeses with pure and natural ingredients. Our recipes are simple but cultures are selected and nurtured to achieve unique and complex flavors, delightful textures and the wholesomeness of real food. To the best of our ability we care for our land and animals, pay attention to detail and provide a true 'paddock to plate' experience

Visitors to the farm gate can share what we are so lucky to live with every day. Sampling our cheeses in the comfort of the tasting room, or enjoying a home - cooked meal in the fresh air of the veranda, you can experience the breathtaking landscape of the Moyarra Valley, surrounded by pastures and the humble animals that provide your food.

    Fine cheese, fine food, fine scenery, fine animals and fabulous people. I would recommend the cheese tasting platter and lunch menu to anyone wanting a relaxed dining experience on the weekend or during the school hols.
