Fairview, deeply rooted in family, is renowned for its commitment to growth and innovation, continuously meeting the evolving needs of the industry and clients. Owner Charles Back’s follows three key principles: honesty, heritage and innovation, and these values steer the farm into the future.
Our unwavering dedication to excellence earned us significant recognition at this year’s SA Dairy Championships. We proudly received 11 SA Championship Awards, a testament to the exceptional quality of our products. Notably, our Woolworths Blue Pearl clinched a prestigious Qualité Award. This semi-soft, high-fat blue mould cheese, named after the Paarl Mountain, boasts a sharp, matured, spicy flavour profile and creamy texture.
Bruce Rowbotham, Fairview cheesemaker, emphasizes, “These awards reflect our teamwork and commitment, demonstrating the diversity of our Cheesery across 11 different championship classes.”
From Camembert to Crottin, our dedication to crafting tradition shines through in every exquisite cheese we produce. Here tradition isn’t a mere word; it’s a legacy we’ve diligently preserved over decades. Our commitment to excellence goes beyond words; it’s evident in every product we meticulously craft. At Fairview, we’re not just crafting cheese; we’re preserving a legacy. Join us in savouring tradition, one cheese at a time, and let excellence be your guide.
