Rising Stars - Lesser Known NZ Artisan Cheese

79 Black Barn Road, Havelock North

Even in Europe the definition of an artisan cheese varies, but it's commonly accepted to mean "made by hand, in small batches, in an open vat, using milk from the cheesemakers own herd or near neighbours". This ensures, like wine, they reflect the Terroir of the area.

In NZ artisan cheese are almost as rare as hens' teeth and as cheese shops are even more difficult to find, you might only ever see them at a local market.
