You can see there is excellent creative thought behind the marketing of Harvey Cheese which uses milk sourced from the local Harvey Agricultural College.

The flagship triple-cream Camembert White mould cheese is called eloquently, OMG ("Oh My God"). It's siblings are  - a camembert-type with a difference, Ash Blonde - a  with a layer of ash below the rind, giving the cheese a milder flavour, and Rodents' Revenge - a brie-type of cheese. In the iconic savoury range of hard cheeses, made with and without flavourings, the chilli (sold as Ringstinger) is popular, along with Pepper & Garlic and Caraway. Among the many awards taken by this range of products are First Prize and Gold awards for the Cummin Savoury at the 2008 DIAA Awards.

This ,  manufacturer also produces washed-rind cheeses - semi-hard and soft varieties with a pungent red bacterial rind. They include Salvia Sunrise (a semi-hard type with layers of sage), Raclette, St James Rouge (brandy-washed), Neil's Fault, and Wicked.

The naturally-rinded blue cheese (Harvey Blue) took first prize at the 2008 DIAA awards.

Another much-acclaimed product is the aged Romano, a piquant hard cheese perfect for eating straight off the wheel, or grated instead of Parmigiano. This took Gold at the 2007 South Australian Specialist Cheesemaker's Association Awards.

These products are sold throughout the state. Hard cheeses and fetta types are available at selected gourmet food outlets and IGA stores around Perth and the South-West. More fragile or niche products are available exclusively on-site at 11442 South Western Highway, Wokalup WA, so be sure to visit.
