Guided Tour & Cheese Tasting


COVID-19 update: Out of protection for our staff, customers and business we are discontinuing our tours until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.


Tours give guests a behind the scenes look at our cheese making process, all the way from; make to taste.  You will get to experience a cheese tasting, informative talk and guided tour of our factory through ou­­­­r viewing galleries, plus walk away with a goody bag sample.

For the more indulgent foodie, we have the opportunity to upgrade tours - to include a cheese and wine matching. These tours are held at 11.45am, Mon - Fri. Book here.

So if you're wondering what to do while you're in Oamaru, look no further.
