Goats cheese

Gruff Junction's goats cheese

Award winning goats' cheese

Gruff Junction goats cheese Ev Moorhead started farming goats in Greenpark , Canterbury in 2001. He now milks about 250 white saanen goats handing some of the milk over to Gruff Junction, the factory that makes a range of cheeses. Anna Moorhead runs Gruff Junction and she learnt her cheese-making trade in the UK after completing a degree at the University of Canterbury.

Anna makes a range of hard cheeses such as gouda and then some she’s named such as Ellesmere Chevrego, a Manchego style made of goats’ milk. Two other hard cheese Gruff Junction produce are Selwyn Farmhouse and Fendalton.

Happily there’s a goats’ milk feta.

The soft cheeses are also named after places in Canterbury. The blues are Lyttleton Blue and Lincoln Blue, while Sumner is a brie style.

The milking season is from September to April, so while the hard cheeses are available out of season, availability of the soft cheeses is seasonal. Almost all of Gruff Junction’s cheeses have won at least one award and they have been in the medal list each year since 2007.
