Mrs. Jean Stone (nee Saxelby) in a recent letter recalled; 

"Dad started the Cheese Factory in 1910 after leaving his job as manager of the Butter Factory at Rylstone. There were two share farms supplying milk to the factory and at times other suppliers. The type of cheese made was cheddar and it was sold to storekeepers for re-sale. I think the smallest cheese made was 3-11 lbs (Picnic Cheese) and it went up to quite large sizes, The place was sold in 1926 to Herbert Thompson of Tarwyn Park and we moved to Sydney where Dad opened the Tenterfield Bylong Cheese Company at Missenden Road, Camperdown
