DON’T PANIC: BRING THE CHEESE PARTY HOME

Independent Australian producers have had a pretty rough start to the year and now face an uncertain autumn. Many food and wine events have had to cancel or postpone their events, leaving producers with a surplus of cheese and other yummy products. 

So if  you’re at home in quarantine, practicing self-isolation or are simply can’t live without cheese then why not pick up or purchase online some creamy-goodness. 

To help with your ‘purcheese’ we’ve placed each producer into four unique COVID categories, which one are you?:

Sounds like all this negative news is weighing you down. Here’s a few awesome cheese stores and grocers we work alongside to cheer you up. 

These speciality stores stock a bunch of the producers that come to Mould so you’re bound to find something that will put a smile back on your face. 

Visit these stores:

MELBOURNE

SYDNEY

BRISBANE

IF YOU ARE: All gouda! Just give me that cheese!

Ok brave one, here’s your mission if you cheese to accept it. Most of our producers don’t have online stores which is exactly why festivals like Mould are important. It’s going to take time and research on your part but please hit up as many farmers markets and stockists that are still open as you can. Support Local!

The following don’t have an online store but they might be selling at farmers market near you. Find a stockist of your favourite cheese maker:
