We're leaders in Bio-dynamic farming practices in New Zealand.

Bio-Dynamic principles is an essential basis for the nutrition of people and animals and the responsible stewardship of the land.


We milk approximately 46 hand reared shorthorn cows

That graze on lush herbal lay pastures. It is the special care of the land to which the cheese makers attribute the wonderful taste in the cheese!


Spiritual, ethical ,ecological approach to agriculture.

Biodynamic agriculture is a spiritual – ethical – ecological approach to agriculture which has much in common with other organic methods.
