He has an online shop and a 16,000-strong cheese club membership, who receive regular deliveries of cheese, dispatched all over Australia from Bruny Island. He also has a cellar door at Bruny Island, a stall at Salamanca Market in central Hobart, and a cellar door under the stairs at the Salamanca Arts Centre.
