What do we do? 

We love cheese. We love booze. And we particularly love pairing cheese to booze.

Milk the Cow sources and stocks artisan, award-winning and interesting cheeses from around the world and we spend our days matchmaking - Cheese & Wine, Cheese & Beer, Cheese & Cocktails, Cheese & Whisky... and on it goes, forever chasing the Perfect Match. 

Our team of cheesemongers and sommeliers are always happy to share the quirky and fascinating stories behind the produce we showcase, to help educate, entertain and inspire.

Good, Old-Fashioned Country Hospitality

When you walk into Milk the Cow, it should feel like you're at a cellar door. Friendly smiles, enthusiastic expertise. Everything is available to taste. Have a little or have a lot. Stay awhile or pop in for something to go - either way, you are most welcome. 

We Celebrate Produce

We didn’t actually make any of the amazing cheeses or boutique beverages on show, which is why we can boast about them proudly. Our team love sharing their knowledge and will meet you at whatever level you’re at, without the wank. 

Are you a newbie to cheese? Let us show you the ropes. A cheese aficionado? We'll showcase what’s new and exciting in the cabinet. Got a question about mould? We’ll happily answer it. Never tried blue cheese but want to venture out? We have one with "training wheels" on it to get you started. 

We are constantly asking ourselves: What else can we do with the cheese? 

We garnish our signature cocktails with wedges of fromage

We deep fry our Camemberts, and bake them too. 

We set Saganaki on fire, tableside. 

We experiment with fondues made with beer.

We churn cheese into gelato, bake it into high tea cakes, have Melbourne’s best chefs create four course dinners with cheese as the hero in every dish. We create lush grazing stations for corporate events, provide cheese towers for weddings, send cheese experts to host guided flights for big groups. 

And finally, we box our cheese into beautiful hampers matched with boutique beverages and ship them all over Australia so people everywhere can experience a little bit of what we love so much for themselves at home, or share it with a loved one as an always-welcomed gift.
