Visit Us

Visit us at the Pyengana Farmgate Café, the home of Australia’s heritage farmhouse cheese.

We’re located about 25 minutes from St Helens on St Columba Falls Road, just off the Tasman Highway.

Watch the cheesemakers at work, handcrafting the Pyengana cheese. Learn more about how our cheese is carefully made for you to enjoy. We endeavour to make cheese each weekday subject to milk availability. The cheese making process usually occurs between 8am and 2pm. Please contact us if you would like to confirm whether cheese is scheduled to be made on the day of your visit.

Cheese tastings are readily available, so be sure to taste the Pyengana Cheese selection plus other cheeses within the Tasmanian Food Co range to find your favourites. We also have a great range of Tasmanian gourmet foods available too.

Sit back and relax on our deck, enjoy a gourmet platter with a matching Tasmanian wine or beer overlooking picturesque Pyengana valley. Watch the Pyengana cows come and go from the dairy a little down the hill; an idyllic country paradise for you to savour and discover cheese at its best. A great place for the whole family to enjoy.

Before you leave, browse in our onsite shop, choose and buy your favourite cheeses and gourmet Tasmanian products. We can pack your purchases in a cooler bag which you can take with you. For those that are on holiday, we can also deliver your purchased items to you at a later, preferred date when you’ll be home.
