We wanted to let you know that we are remaining open during the lockdown period as we supply cheese to the supermarkets. We are also able to offer an online delivery service to have cheese couriered to your door all around NZ. Please visit our SHOP page or Gift Boxes page or you can find our Cheese Survival Kit below. Take care everyone, love the Barrys Bay Cheese Team xx
We’re not Just Great.
At Barrys Bay Cheese, our milk comes from local, grass-fed cows. We don’t know their names, but we know where they live. Sourcing our most important ingredient from a single farm in the same geographic area is one of the ways we ensure that every piece of our cheese tastes as good as the last. Being so close to the source of our most important ingredient also has implications for our cheese. Not many people know this, but milk doesn’t like being jiggled about inside a milk tanker. So the less time it spends on the road, the better. By minimising the travel time from the farm to our factory, we do our best to preserve the unique flavour profile of the local milk that gives Barrys Bay cheese its distinctive taste.
