My grandfather, Hermann Schulz founded the first organic farmhouse cheesery in Australia and my father Michael is a dairy farmer. I was born into organic farming – it is all I know. We are one of the (if not) the first organic dairy farms in Australia. After high school, I worked in the cheese factory to save for an overseas trip which led to an interest in cheesemaking. After working in various cheeseries around Victoria, and experimenting alongside my grandfather with milk cream and cheese, the idea was born to restart the family cheesery. By the time I was 21 I had my own factory on my parents’ farm.
