Jannei Goat Dairy was first established in 1995. Janette and Neil started with the production of raw goats milk for sale to the Sydney market under the NSW Quality Goats Milk Scheme. Over the years we have grown our product range to a selection of over eleven artisan goat cheeses.
Jannei has always sought to provide its customers with a quality sustainable product which is evident in the amount of awards it has won over the years, amounting to more than 30 gold awards since 1998 and numerous silver awards in specialist cheese shows across Australia. Three times we have been the most successful exhibitor in the goats milk class at the Sydney Royal Show. In 2004 our Bent Back Chèvre won champion cheese at the Australian Specialty Cheese Show and 2008 saw us win champion non-bovine at the Grand Dairy Awards with the Bûche Noir making this cheese the overall Australian champion in the Non Bovine cheese section.
You can currently buy our fresh goat cheese and yoghurt in Sydney, and West over the Blue Mountains.

Baby goats kids can be seen at the dairy from September to January from a paddock close to our cellar door. We also give guides tours of the farm for groups if booked ahead of time. Plenty of photo opportunities.
Jannei cheeses are as natural as they can be with no GM products or artificial preservatives, made from 100% Goats milk with a vegetable based rennet.
Animals are grazed and fed natural concentrates, lucerne hay, oats/barley, copra meal and pollard. With other oil grains being added in winter. The Goats have access to sheds to use when the weather changes quickly at 900 metres. Jannei goats are predominantly of Saanen originating from the Swiss dairy goat breed .
Jannei Goat Dairy practices sustainable farming. Paddocks are treated with organic fertilisers and the animals are fed well. With sick animals being treated away from the main herd.
