Take a guided tour of Oamaru's Whitestone Cheese Co., and learn the cheese making process across a range of specialities. Taste some of the cheeses on offer and even take home a goodie bag!
Founded in 1987, Whitestone Cheese Co. is home to a rich history of local cheese making. The original factory was set up in Oamaru during the rural downturn of the era and a series of crippling droughts. Whitestone Farmhouse was launched originally in a converted garage and using milk sourced from local farms, and growing now to employ over 50 people with a factory, deli and shop.
During this guided tour of the viewing galleries, you will learn the history of Whitestone Cheese Co., and also the cheese making process.
