COVID-19 update: Out of protection for our staff, customers and business we are limiting our tours 'by appointment only'. We have opened up limited days on our online booking platform. Please email if you wish to enquire about a day that isn't isn't available on our website.  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.
