Beston’s Edwards Crossing Cheese Company

Along the banks of the mighty Murray River in the Murray Bridge region, you’ll find some of the finest dairy fields in Australia. Beston’s Edwards Crossing product range pays tribute to the pioneers of yesteryear by using only the best natural ingredients and remaining true to traditional cheesemaking methods.

Launched in July 2016, the Beston’s Edwards Crossing range takes its name from George Edwards, one of the original settlers of the Murray Bridge region. George and his wife Mary built the ‘Edwards’ homestead overlooking the Murray River, where many farmers would cross with their herds en route from Melbourne to Adelaide, and the place came to be known as ‘Edwards Crossing’.

The company’s dedication to quality has been recognised nationally with the majority of Beston Global Food Company’s 70 Campion, Gold, Silver and Bronze Industry Awards directed to Beston’s Edwards Crossing, including the nation’s highest Industry awards for Cheddar in 2017, and Colby in 2018.

Retail Product Images of the following 200g range:

Rich and full flavoured

Marketplace

Mild and creamy cheese

COLBY

Whilst similar to Cheddar, Colby is a mild creamy cheese with a sweet nutty flavour. Perfect for grilling, sandwiches and salads.

Marketplace

Rich and smooth

GOUDA

A mild, clean and slightly sweet flavoured cheese with a creamy texture. A perfect sandwich cheese which slices well. Left to mature, the flavour can intensify and be used as part of a cheese platter.

Marketplace

Hard cheese infused with peppercorn

PEPATO

An Italian type cheese with a distinct piquant flavour enhanced by the inclusion of black peppercorns. Matured in the traditional way the cheese develops a rind and tends to have an open texture.

Marketplace

Rich and bitey

VINTAGE CHEDDAR

Aged up to 24 months, firm in texture, yet mellow in character or quality. It is rich and smooth with a tendency to melt in the mouth; the flavour is full, fine and nutty. Made in the classical way, its texture is firm and slightly crumbly with the crystals typically exhibited in mature cheddar.

Marketplace

Semi-soft cheese

GRUYERE

A traditional, creamier, unpasteurized, semi-soft cheese. Slightly darker and grainy, this cheese has a wonderful complexity of flavours – at first fruity, later becoming more earthy and nutty.
