Maleny Cheese

Simply natural Maleny goodness

Welcome to Maleny Cheese

Simplicity Sustainability Community

In the heart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Maleny Cheese produces award-winning, handcrafted cheese and yoghurt. We use time honoured traditions and the pure local milk of the rolling green hills around us, so you get a true taste of our special region. We love our community, our farmers, and simply good dairy. These things are at the centre of everything we do. From our Maleny cafe and store, to our boutique range of products, we offer you an authentic paddock to plate experience and honest food of the highest quality.


Maleny Cheese craft our boutique cheese range from pure Hinterland milk. We produce cheddar, white mould and feta-style cheeses made with local cow’s milk and buffalo milk. These award-winning cheeses are lovingly handmade using artisan skills handed down from European Master Cheesemakers.


Taste the Sunshine in every creamy mouthful of our multi-award winning local yoghurt. If you are looking for a simple ingredients list, you will love our 100% natural Greek-style yoghurt. It’s purely made on real whole milk, with real fruit. Abundant with those wonderful A,B & C cultures, without all those nasties you don’t need.

Our Region

The Maleny region is a little bit magical. It’s the way the mist lingers over the mountains after the rain. The friendly locals who greet you with a smile. It’s like no other place. You’ll understand when you get here…see you soon!

Simply good dairy

Maleny Cheese is run by the Bucher family. Our Master Cheesemaker Markus was born in Switzerland, and brings his European craftsmanship to offer products of pure distinction. Our range is handmade with a love for the craft, our industry and our community. We are also a dairy processing family, with a dairy farm of our own. Only fresh local milk from boutique farms on the Hinterland supply our cheese and yoghurt making. Since 2004, we have grown to become a well known brand around Queensland and Australia. For the past 121 years, the rolling green hills of the Maleny area have supported our dairy industry. Our Hinterland is fiercely proud to be a trusted source of natural dairy products of excellence.
