The Margaret River Dairy Company
The Margaret River Dairy Company’s origins go back to 1966 when a group of Italian artisan cheese makers began selling their farmhouse and ricotta cheeses in a small store in suburban Perth. In 1990 they moved to the unspoilt South West to be closer to the rich soils and rolling green pastures beloved by dairy cattle. The Margaret River Dairy Company has gone from strength to strength ever since.
Discover our award-winning selection of delicious yoghurts and artisan cheeses. They’re lovingly created from the finest and freshest ingredients, delivered straight to our dairy from local farms.
The dairy is open every day 9.30am to 5pm, except Good Friday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
