The lovely Pohangia Valley held one more delicious secret for us. We had heard about the local cheese makers and called into Cartwheel Creamery on our way home on Sunday afternoon.
Cartwheel Creamery is an artisan cheese-making company on a mission to make outstanding cheeses that reflect the natural goodness of Pohangia Valley. Adrian and Jill believe that the very best cheese can only be made with high quality milk from healthy animals. They use cow's milk from local dairy farmers, and goat’s milk from Opiki to make their artisan cheese range.
Jill all set to give us a cheese tasting
And it was all delicious! We loved the creamy cheeses, (silver and bronze medalists) and are great fans of blue cheese too. We made our choices and happily took a selection of cheeses home. Plus a couple of pots of fruit paste to have with our cheeses, hand made by Jill. That should keep us happy for a while.
These came home with us
