  • Supplier Profile: Whitestone Cheese

    Whitestone Cheese

    Whitestone Cheese was founded in 1987 as a diversification during the 1980’s rural downturn and a series of crippling droughts. Bob’s experience in livestock trading was quickly applied to cheese trading. The original factory was set up in Oamaru in a converted garage with milk sourced from local farms and one variety, Whitestone Farmhouse was launched. The business slowly grew as an extension of the farming operation until todays purpose built factory was commissioned in 1998. Son Simon joined the business bringing a new set of skills and the farm was sold to concentrate on growing the exciting family enterprise.

    Whitestone Cheese source their milk locally where possible. The fresh cow’s milk comes from North Otago Fonterra dairy farms and goat’s milk is sourced directly from a single Washdyke farm just north of Oamaru. All of their milk is delivered fresh and raw to be pasteurised at the factory to produce export certified cheese.

  • Supplier Profile: Kingsmeade Artisan Cheese

    Kingsmeade Artisan Cheese

    On the outskirts of Masterton in the Wairarapa, Miles and Janet King have been making ewe and cow's milk cheeses since 1998 and have since won many awards.

    Kingsmeade makes 14 different varieties of cheese, half from ewes' milk and half from cows'. All are uniquely hand crafted, ranging from the aged hard varieties to the deliciously soft.

    Miles is heavily involved in all aspects of the farming and cheesemaking with daily milking, cutting and packaging. Each batch of cheese is hand made in the factory on the farm, right next to the family home. Janet runs the Kingsmeade shop and dispatches orders all across New Zealand.

    They have 200 East Friesian sheep. Traditionally, this breed of sheep have been used as milking sheep mostly in Europe. They are known as friendly, clever, robust, highly fertile (they usually have twins or triplets) and are good milkers. Sheep's milk is extremely high in nutrients compared to other kinds of commercially available milk. In many cases, it is more readily digestible to people who suffer from lactose intolerance. Evidence suggests it can also help people with eczema and other allergies.

They produce multiple award-winning fresh buffalo mozzarella, bocconcini, ricotta, yoghurt and marinated buffalo cheese from their fresh buffalo milk.

  • Supplier Profile: Bostock Organic Chicken

    Bostock's Organic Free Range Chicken was recently named as the 2020 Supreme Champion of the Outstanding Food Producer awards for their organic whole chicken as well as winning the Paddock Champion award and received two gold medals for their Organic Chicken Thighs, Chicken Breasts and Whole Chicken and received a bronze medal for their sausages.

    The company was started by two brothers, Ben and George, in 2015 when they saw a gap in the market for quality organic free range chicken.

    Ben and George Bostock grew up on their family’s organic apple orchard in sunny Hawke’s Bay and share a family passion for healthy, safe growing practices where there is control from the farm to plate. This means no chemicals, no antibiotics, no hormones and no genetic modification.

    Ben began raising the chickens on pasture in open paddocks near the family apple orchard where he grew up in Hawke's Bay, and when his brother George joined the business last year they moved their chickens on to an apple orchard and built uniquely designed French chalets, which are clean and spacious and enable the chickens to roam freely outside once they are fully feathered.

    The brothers are determined to give their organic chickens the best life. Their apple orchard provides the perfect environment to farm organic chickens. The birds enjoy a happy life roaming freely among the apple trees and are housed in uniquely designed french chalets, which are clean and spacious and enable the chickens to roam freely outside once they are fully feathered.
