Good place to stop in at for anything cheesy; they make their own stuff there and along with a lot of other local produce, there is a fair selection. Yes it is a bit on the pricey side but its good cheese ! You could...More

Small cheese shop which also holds tastings. A few selections of cheese to buy. Cheese making can be seen through the back shop although none ongoing on our visit. Would not have missed much had we not stopped.

On our way back from Akaroa we did a quick stop at Barrys Bay Cheese. This is a great place to come to if you want to stock up on their lovely range - Their peppered Havarti is definitely top of the list.

At the bottom of the steep decline into Barry's Bay, this small cheese factory is situated in a picturesque spot over looking the bay. A small sample of their produce is available for tasting and there is a window to view the making process

Called in and were greeted by a most informative lady who was able to answer our questions. Watched men working with cheese and a 5 min video on how. Delicious cheeses which we sampled and brought.

A small cottage cheese maker but offered a wide variety of cheeses. From cheddar to blue cheese. A place for good and yummy cheese. Worth your visit and money.
