Jamie Najmi

Jamie Najmi, a passionate cheese maker and the owner of Mazaraat Artisan Cheese, along with his wife, Nieta Pricilia Puspitasari, is from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Their journey into the world of cheese began with the creation of Indonesia’s first organic cheese brand, Mazaraat Cheese, crafted in the village of Cancangan, Wukirsari. With certifications from the New Zealand Cheese School and Academie Mons in France, Jamie brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to his artisanal cheese-making endeavor.

Operating Mazaraat Artisan Cheese as an organic, raw milk cheese dairy in the Yogyakarta region, Jamie and his team uphold a holistic, organic approach to dairy farming, ensuring the health and well-being of their cows and goats. Their commitment to quality and tradition shines through in every batch of cheese they produce. Free from preservatives, additives, artificial flavors, and GMO ingredients, Mazaraat cheeses are a testament to their dedication to pure, natural craftsmanship.

What sets Mazaraat Cheese apart is not only their dedication to sustainable practices but also their deep respect for the cultural and local identity embedded in traditional cheese making. Each day begins at dawn, with fresh milk sourced from local farmers near Mount Merapi, who prioritize natural and organic methods of cattle raising, ensuring the highest quality milk for cheese production.

From workshops on cheese making, tasting, pairing, to cooking, Jamie and his team travel nationwide, sharing their passion and knowledge with fellow cheese enthusiasts. Mazaraat Cheese takes immense pride in delivering their fresh products straight to your table, ensuring peak flavor and texture with every bite.
