Dairy farmer Cressida Cains has been awarded the 2020 NSW/ACT AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award for her work in promoting a profitable and secure future for Australian dairy farmers.

Cressida’s family dairy is a bit different to what you might expect.

Named after the Italian word for sheep, Pecora Dairy boasts Australia’s only working, pure East Friesian ewes, the most productive breed of dairy sheep in the world.

Sheep milk is one of the most nutrient dense and rich milks, which makes it incredibly suitable for cheese making.

Cressida is an award-winning artisan cheese maker who swapped her corporate life in Sydney’s wine industry for greener pastures.

Here is her amazing story.
