Bangalow cheese maker awarded
BANGALOW cheese maker Justin Telfer has been awarded the Excellence in Agriculture Award at the Sydney Easter Royal Show.
Mr Telfer, and his brand Bangalow Cheese Co, received the award from NSW Governor, Professor Marie Bashir last Tuesday in Sydney.
Bangalow Cheese was also awarded the Champion Fancy Cheese crown at the Sydney Royal Cheese and Dairy Produce Show last February.
Asked about the fact that cheese making is not regularly considered an agricultural activity, Justin Telfer explained that "making cheese is, basically, farming good bacteria in dairy".
