Unique and delicious cheeses created before your eyes.
From the lush meadows of Smithton in the heart of Tasmania’s dairy region comes La Cántara Artisan Cheeses. Made from 100% Tasmanian milk, these Venezuelan- and European-style cheeses are produced using sustainable farming practices, focused on animal welfare and customer satisfaction.
From the purpose-built observation room, enjoy a full view of the resident cows being milked by state-of-the-art robots. The ladies come in voluntarily throughout the day for milking, snacking and well-earned head scratches. Learn the history of dairy farming and cheese-making in a region that produces some of Australia’s highest quality milk.
After witnessing the manufacturing process from paddock-to-platter, sample La Cántara’s unique range, and take home your selection of favourites.
