Overview
More
Island Pure is a working sheep farm at 127 Gum Creek Road, Cygnet River on Kangaroo Island that incorporates a sheep dairy where we milk our ewes each day. Our visitors can watch this happening from a viewing area in the main building adjacent to our cafe and Island Produce store where we showcase Island Pure's famous 100% pure Sheep Milk cheeses and yoghurts that are hand made on site. There are tables and chairs set up overlooking the paddocks and picnic rugs to use on the grassed area where the friendly lambs will come up to the fence and ask to be patted and have their photo taken. Relax with a coffee, glass of wine or a beautiful Island Pure Sheep Milk Gelato and enjoy our tranquil home.

Got to see the sheep being milked, definitely the better time to go during the day. Cheese tasting, produce to buy and even lunch available.

We were not big fans of sheep cheese and were a little sceptical to visit but decided to anyway. SO glad that we did as it was just fabulous. They had a delicious manchego(spanish style) cheese that would have challenged the original. But the standout...More

We were quite satisfied with the cafe food experience, but never were we asked or shown or found or offered any tour, or milking demo, or even any info. We thought it was just a cafe and shop advertising and selling their cheese. So having...More

Nice place. Very low key. Great tasting cheese. You can meet some of the little lambs and even see the sheep being milked.
