La Cántara Artisan Cheeses

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.
