What we do
We are a ‘top shelf’ specialty cheese producer making genuinely ‘natural’ cheeses. Here at Kaimai, we are absolutely committed to flavour, taste, aroma and texture.
Come and visit us, the Kaimai Cheese factory and Café and Store is centrally located in Waharoa on SH 27, just north of Matamata. We sit proudly right in the heart of Waikato dairy country.
When you visit us, the first thing you will notice is that the Kaimai building is a replica of an old historic New Zealand 1920’s Butter Factory. Trusses and roof vents from the original butter factory are cleverly used in the design of the building.
You can see the entire cheese making process from behind large glass windows and read how the cheese is being made. Afterwards, you can relax and enjoy a lovely meal or snack at our café with a menu designed by award winning caterers Ruth and Paul Pretty. Before you head home you can sample the cheese you have seen being made and purchase a piece of our ‘ready to eat’ cheese or gourmet items for later enjoyment.
