A Cheesery Day

Ann, Sandra and Sandy, look very happy after sampling the cheeses and locally grown produce.


2022 August Outing

A group of ladies from Carindale VIEW visited Awassi Cheesery, a purpose-built Lockyer Valley sheep dairy and boutique cheesery that is surrounded by avocado groves.

We were very lucky to see some of the lambs that had arrived early, and sampled a selection of cheeses that are produced on site. We also enjoyed a lunch of frittatas made with sheep feta, along with local salad produce.

Many of the ladies bought cheeses and avocadoes to enjoy at home.
