Your very own wheel of Raw Milk C2, made and matured especially for you! Really... what could be better than that?
During the months of May and June we custom-make wheels of Raw Milk C2 for you to adopt.
This is about bringing you on a journey of how your cheese is made and matured. Once adopted, each cheese will have your name carved into the side of it as well as its date of birth. We will even send you a beautiful birth certificate and portrait photo of your newborn to stick on your fridge and admire daily! This year we're so excited to be able to offer you wheels of Raw Milk C2 made exclusively from our very own milk! We couldn't be happier with this cheese in particular, making a raw milk cheese from our own dairy, milking our own rare breed cows and having control over all contributing factors that influence the flavour of this cheese is a dream come true, the results I hope you'll see speak for themselves.
Throughout the next six months, while we do the hard work of carefully maturing your cheese, regularly turning and rubbing it, we will also send you updates of how your wheel is coming along. Then, when it reaches perfection in early December, when we will deliver it to your door – just in time for Christmas.
Your wheel of cheese will be around 4kg and will last several weeks after you have cracked it (don't worry, we will tell you how to look after it).
If you think getting through a whole wheel on your own is a bit ambitious, get together with some of your friends, family or colleagues to do a 'shared adoption'. A great big, beautiful wheel of Raw Milk C2 is the perfect addition to any home or office! A wheel of Raw Milk C2 would also make the ultimate Christmas gift for the hard-core cheese lover.
The final cost of your cheese will be determined by its final weight. We will weigh it just before we send it because your cheese will lose about 15% of its body weight during maturation. You can expect it to come in between $400 to $500 including freight.
To secure your adoption, all you need to do at this stage is pay a deposit of $250. We will sort out the balance just before we send it to you in December.
Your name: We'll carve your name into your C2 (shorter names are best!!). If you have any special requests, put it into the notes section during checkout... it looks like this:

Whole Wheel of Raw Milk C2 Between $400 and $500
milk: cow type: hard, natural rind, raw milk
Raw Milk C2 is the sort of cheese found throughout the mountains of France & northern Italy. A classic cooked curd cheese made in the traditional large wheels, C2 matures for 6 months, during which time it develops a sweet aroma & mildly nutty flavour. The rind is wiped every week to encourage the surface bacteria that provide this cheese much of its robust integrity. This is Raw Milk cheese - the hard stuff and the only raw milk hard cheese being made in Australia - and highly sought-after by discerning grown-ups. Don’t miss this opportunity to adopt your very own wheel!
Each wheel weighs in between 4 - 5 kg (they are hand made so the weight of each wheel differs slightly).
