Moon River Dairy Co. was born out of passion, dedication and a deep connection to the land. These are our raison d’être, the driving force behind everything we do.
We strive to challenge the notion that cheese making is, largely, a European tradition. We do this by creating cheeses that are not only well made, but also unique to its terroir. As a pioneer of farmstead cheese making in Southeast Asia, we are committed to establishing Indonesia in the global stage.
Our cheese making process starts in the early morning, moments after milk is expressed.
Once the milk arrives, starter culture is introduced to increase the acidity of the milk. This inhibits the growth of harmful pathogens by allowing good bacteria to flourish. After the desired pH level is reached, rennet is added to turn the milk into curd which we then cut to separate the solids from the liquid whey in a process called syneresis.
Cheese is nothing short of alchemy, it is a beautiful combination of art and science
Our cheese needs to age gracefully, thus we take careful steps to ensure that the final product reaches its optimum texture and flavor profile.
