What's On

Cheese of the Month

L’Artisan is a range of handmade cheese, made in Australia with organic milk to traditional French recipes and techniques, by cheese maker and owner Matthieu Megard. He made Australia his home in 2007 and shortly afterwards moved to Timboon Cheese to make cheese from the organic milk sourced from the Shulz co-op farm nearby. In 2013 he started a joint venture with Organic Dairy Farmers (ODF) and started “l’Artisan Organic Cheese” and in 2015 he moved the production to Geelong where they have set up a facility which has greatly improved the consistency of his cheese with better equipment and maturing rooms.
All his cheeses have a unique and distinctive personality - from local organic milk to reflect the Great Ocean Road “Terroir”, to every process being performed by hand, from the skimming to moulding - every batch, every cheese receives special attention.
