The business continues to be run by the Bennett family and Ashgrove Cheese was established on the property in 1993. It is Australia's premier producer of award winning handcrafted Cheddar style cheeses.

Trails passing through Ashgrove Cheese Stops

Deloraine-Latrobe Produce Loop

Here's a trail with some very different food and beverage producers. Seldom does a relatively small area have such a diversity of produce. The trail starts in Deloraine, up to Railton and further on to Latrobe, then back to Deloraine. Aside from admiring the scenery there is much to admire about the quality of produce from these five producers. Boutique craft beers, melomels and honey wines. Raspberry fruit, preserves, wine and liqueurs. Handmade chocolate. Fresh apple juice and cider, and a tempting range of cheddar style cheeses.


Tasmanian Gourmet Cheese Trail

For the cheese-lover this trail truly has an amazing variety for any palate...cow, goat, sheep...hard, soft, semi-hard...pasteurised, unpasteurised...and the impressive list just goes on.
