Artisan Goat Cheese
Come meet the ‘new kids on the block’ – Nieuwenhuis Farmstead Cheese. Specialist artisans producing authentic, handcrafted goat’s cheese.
Their Farmstead Cheese is made on their Hawke’s Bay family farm with the milk from their own goats. Farmstead best describes this specialist process which results in our own unique, quality cheese. This begins with the grass they grow through to how they care for their animals. This ensures the best goat’s milk is used to make their cheese. They hand-craft all their cheese in small batches. Similar to wine making, their cheeses have unique characteristics owing to the farm’s local terrior. Distinct and authentic, reflecting the characterises of their small herd, seasonal changes and pasture.
Annie and Geoff Nieuwenhuis have even been named New Zealand’s 2021 Champion Cheesemakers!
