Legend has it that when Heidi Farm’s founder, Frank Marchand first set eyes on the land where the farm still flourishes today, he yodeled with joy because the idyllic unpolluted environment was the perfect location for crafting farmhouse Swiss style cheeses. Nestled in Tasmania’s north, Heidi Farm cheeses are produced using milk from neighbouring farms, giving them a consistent quality and unique characteristics that are specific to the location.
Heidi Farm Gruyere, with its abundance of industry awards, is considered a benchmark and one of the finest farmhouse cheeses to be produced in Australia. Crafted by hand to a traditional technique, this classic Gruyere is wonderfully smooth and nutty in flavour and offers a strong aroma. Matured for at least nine months and often longer, creating a texture that ranges from moist and smooth when young, to concentrated and flaky when well-aged.
Because of its quality melting properties and great texture, Heidi Farm Gruyere is a wonderful cheese for cooking – perfect for grilling or using in a fondue, soufflé or quiche.
Heidi Gruyere is available this week for the special price of $39.95 per kilogram, a saving of $4.
