We’ve been busy having a great Easter, selling lots of cheese and meeting lots of customers (old & new) at the many Easter markets and at the farm. It is fantastic to have return customers especially ones that bring their friends to see us and taste our cheese. BCC sold out at several markets (Excellent job Lisa, Ken, Don, Ada & Warren). We hope that everyone had a Happy, Healthy & Hopefully an opportunity for a restful break over Easter and the school holidays. No rest for us at Boosey Creek Cheese !!
Lisa has returned from cheese school eager to start making cheese on her own. She even brought some of the other students she met to look at our factory. They were keen to see how a small factory operated and hopefully they were suitably impressed with our set up.
Alex used some of his school holiday time to help his dad in the factory (graduating from labeling to helping turn the cheeses). Alex and Ben spent Easter with their aunt & uncle on their Alpaca farm (Vista Del Sud Alpacas) near Mansfield and the Easter Bunny still visited them even though Alpacas are known for killing rabbits !
BCC is going to be at several new markets (& some old) the weekend after Easter.
BCC will have tastings of its cheeses available at Champions Supa IGA at the Gladstone Park store from 3 -6pm on Friday 9th April. Come along and taste Boosy Blue, Yarrawonga White, Boosey Soft and Tungamah Tasty.
