Clevedon Valley Buffalo Company's soft cheese

Water buffalo mozzarella and ricotta

The Clevedon Valley Buffalo Company makes cheese from buffalo milked from their herd of Riverine water buffalo that graze just south of Auckland.

How water buffalo came to be farmed in this country is a story unto itself, but many years of hard work by the Dorresteyn family has resulted in a breeding herd that are closely related to the docile, big black, short horned beasts farmed in the Mediterranean for their sweet milk. Milking these animals is not as easy or as productive as cows and producing commercial cheeses has been a labour of love and commitment.

Both Clevedon Valley’s ricotta and mozzarella are now award winning cheeses as is their buffalo yoghurt. These products can be found in Clevedon and some Auckland farmers markets and many good food stores across the country, their stockists just keep growing as the herd and production increases with demand. The buffalo milk has a delicate flavor that makes a very clean yoghurt, which is great as an addition to any sauce or condiment.

This is really another first for New Zealand and we’re loving it.
