Tours will 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/beer matching.
So if you're wondering what to do while you're in Oamaru, look no further.
