Goldenbelle is Hunter Belle’s “stinky cheese” although it is far more mild than that description suggests and is delightfully complex. Personally I am not one for “stinky cheese” but I absolutely loved this cheese! For extra pungency serve close to its used by date.
Hunter Belle Dairy Co is a family owned and operated business in the
Upper Hunter Valley of NSW. Headed by husband and wife duo Jason
and Annie Chesworth, their small team at Scone handmake a wonderful
range of dairy products including cheese, milk, butter and yoghurt.
For over 100 years the Chesworth family have been milking cows along
the Hunter River in NSW. In 2009 the 6th generation dairy farmer Geoff
Chesworth and his wife Tania decided it was time to move on from
their 400 cow dairy in Denman, NSW, and into the wonderful world of
cheese. With son Jason soon joining the business, and wife Annie, the
Chesworths have put their passion for dairy to good use and created the
Hunter Belle Dairy Co. that is today.
