Matt Golinski shares the stories behind some of his favourite local producers. Dip into the cheesy success of Woombye Cheese.

Graeme and Karen Paynter started Woombye Cheese in 2013 with a vision to produce high quality handmade French-style cheeses using local milk delivered directly from the dairy. Sadly, in 2015 Graeme passed away, but Karen with her sister and brother-in-law, Sandra and Barry Cadby, continue to supply restaurants, delis and specialist local supermarkets all over Australia with their mouth-watering Triple Cream Brie, Camembert, Blackall Gold Washed Rind, Woombye Ash Brie, Vintage Cheddar, and the flagship Truffle Triple Cream Brie. Together, they have accrued an incredible 21 awards, including the delicious Produce Award.
