ZEST BYRON BAY

About 12 years ago Bay Seafood, Byron Bay’s local fish store, wanted to expand its retail options for their regular customers. So Satise a dedicated staff member introduced his inherited flavours of Nepal to the shelves.

When friends introduced the flavours to us 5 years ago, Pob the chef and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to create a family business that could sustain our lifestyle and community living in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales.

Starting with the Zest Byron Bay Spice Pastes, Pob slowly developed the Curry Blends whilst testing the flavours amongst friends, local retailers and markets until we were ready to dedicate our time to expanding and sharing our gluten free flavours across Australia.

NIMBIN VALLEY DAIRY

Nimbin Valley Dairy is located just outside Nimbin in the Northern Rivers region of NSW.  Kerry and Paul have been farming there for nearly 12 years and making goat and cow milk cheeses and yogurts for about half that time.Both Kerry and Paul grew up on dairies in the region and both come from long lines of dairy farming families, in excess of 5 generations as far as they can trace.

Initially they started with goats that  had been purchased as weed eaters.  They did such a great job of controlling weeds (a constant problem in high rainfall areas with fertile soils) that when a local dairy goat herd came up for sale they bought it, and added it to there existing cow dairy.

Initially they started making simple fresh goat cheeses and some marinated cheeses, that are still sold through local farmers markets. Distributors and restaurants were still wanting access to their cheeses so they started making a range of cow milk cheeses.  This was the beginning of their White Cow, Smooth Cow, Blue Cow and Washed Cow.

In May 2015 they took over Byron Bay Cheese Company and Byron Bay Butter Company. All cheeses are hand made on the farm at Nimbin, using the fresh milk daily to make a  wide range of goat and cow cheses, milk and kefir and yogurt.  Cheese are distributed from Cairns to Sydney and they attend  9 farmers markets a week.
