FAMILY-OWNED SINCE 1908
It all started with a few sheep, a paddock full of vegetables and a herd of dairy cows. This was Eddington Farm, Ashgrove’s original parcel of land, in 1908.
Our home is a small fertile pocket of Northern Tasmania specific to 41 degrees latitude™. It’s here our dairy herds have grazed since 1908, between towering Tasmanian bluffs and cold clear rivers on natural ryegrasses, unique to this latitude.
It’s here we produce fresh premium, velvety, vitamin-rich milk collected daily from our family farms. There are six farms and four dairies in the Ashgrove family.
Welcome to Tasmania’s most indulgent dairy destination with a must-see new visitor centre. Conveniently located on the tourist route between Launceston and Devonport, the Ashgrove Dairy Door has something for every cheese lover.
Enjoy breakfast or lunch with a delicious pasture to plate menu including a choice of five deluxe cheese toasties. Go all out with truffle fondue, a High Cheese (like high tea for cheese fanciers) or a Cheesy Flight (like beer tasting without the fuzzy head). Treat the kids to freshly made gelato. If you’re interested in how cheese is made, watch the cheesemakers in action from start-to-finish behind glass panels or learn about Ashgrove’s unique pasture to plate philosophy in the interpretation centre.
If you’re simply craving pure Tasmanian air, head outside to meet the happiest cows in the world. Be sure to stock up on gourmet provisions like award-winning milk, specialty cheeses, fancy cheese snacks and tasty Tasmanian produce, or grab a gift for a loved one who enjoys cheese as much as you do.
The Ashgrove Dairy Door is open Wednesday to Sunday 7.00 am to 5.30 pm, 25 minutes east of Devonport and 40 minutes west of Launceston with easy access and plenty of parking.
