Sheep cheese

Matatoki Farm's sheep cheese

Better for ewe

Matatoki Farm cheese2 Matatoki Farm works with a Maori Land Trust in Turangi called Waituhi Kuratau Trust to develop organic sheep milk products for both Aoteaoroa and overseas markets. The Trust now supplies its milk to many of New Zealand's Artisan cheese makers, including Matatoki Farm. Their products are GE free and organic.

Those in the know and the lactose intolerant are aware of the health benefits of sheep cheese compared to cheese made from cow’s milk. It’s better in a number of ways, from the lower lactose content, lower milk fat and cholesterol content and the different milk proteins.

A few of the more popular cheeses that come from sheep milk include Roquefort, Pecorino, feta and Romano. The high solid content allows more cheese to be made per litre, which makes sheep cheese much more economical.

Matatoki Farm produce and sell sheep feta, a gouda style sheep cheese made with vegetarian rennet and pecorino from their factory and cafe on site close to Kopu on the Thames-Paeroa Highway. They’ll also deliver direct – give them a call for a price list.
