Who is Cheesemaking?
Graham is cheesemaking; he runs each course, takes the tours and fills your orders for equipment. Graham has a lifetime of experience in the dairy industry. He milked cows on the family farm, drank raw milk fresh from the farm for 25 years and helped his father deliver that same raw milk in pints, quarts and gallons straight from the 10 gallon can. That was when it was legal, and even after it was legal to do so.
After leaving school, Graham obtained formal qualifications in food technology then worked in the dairy and brewing industries in Queensland. He was then employed with the Queensland Government (Department of Primary Industries) as a dairy advisor to dairy factories, a role that was part of a team that assisted dairy plants with technical issues and ran training courses for commercial cheesemakers. In that same role, Graham designed and delivered the first ‘Farmhouse Cheesemaking’ course for home cheesemakers, several of whom have now gone on to establish their own commercial factories.
While working for QDPI, Graham was invited to Italy, France, the UK to undertake training and work in artisan cheesemaking factories. Graham returned to these locations several times, and he has continued this relationship with these places. This has led to the current France Cheesemaking Tours, where we have exclusive access to these small artisan cheesemakers.
While running cheesemaking courses for home cheesemakers, Graham continues to consult with commercial manufacturers to assist with problem-solving and develop new products start-up for commercial operations.
Cheesemaking provides a comprehensive range of equipment for beginner, experienced and commercial cheesemakers.
