Canterbury Cheesemongers shared a post.

The House of Parmesan (1992) from an exhibition of works by Marie Shannon at Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o WaiwhetΕ« until beginning of December. Actually, it looks more like a fabulous piece of properly matured NZ Gouda, but lovely just the same. We will be exhibiting cheeses like this at the wonderful Christchurch Farmers Market tomorrow from 8.30 to 1pm.

Will you guys have any young Goats Gouda at the market?

The cheese-van cometh....again! With the old adage about going backwards to go forwards ringing in our ears, we start selling cheese at the Christchurch Farmers Market this coming Saturday. Our selection might be a little bit limited to begin with, but rest assured everything will be delicious. Thankyou very much to Sam and Alison for letting us return after a three year break. NB NO EFTPOS THIS WEEK, will be just cash sales. ... See MoreSee Less

With heavy hearts we have decided to close our business with effect from mid-July. We have been around since 2000, initially trading from a little van before opening the Salisbury cheese shop and bakery in 2002.Business developed slowly at first, but by 2010 we had a regular clientele and there was a growing interest in proper handmade cheese. We still see many of these lovely customers, but running a small business since the earthquakes has taken its toll. We will therefore stop trading at the Arts Centre from mid-July, when our lease runs out. At present, neither of us are sure what comes next, maybe a smaller shop, maybe another van! What is certain is that folks with Cheesemonger Gift Vouchers need to pop in and redeem them by July. ... See MoreSee Less

Oh nooooooo!!! Oh a sad day for all! Nobody can say you haven't given it your all and for my own very selfish reasons as well as for yourselves, I really do hope that you continue on in business in some way or another. Cheese lovers need you!

Canterbury Cheesemongers shared Ministry for Primary Industries's post.

It's not often you get the opportunity to be part of a group of passionate/knowledgeable cheese folks and their Regulators, working together in such a purposeful and constructive way. It appears that anything is possible!
... See MoreSee Less

New Food Act changes are coming for NZ cheesemakers this year. Today – in Wellington – we’re meeting with 29 cheese makers & distributors, plus technical writers and verifiers, to design a new template food plan for cheese makers – from milking to selling. πŸ§€πŸ§€ Many thanks to New Zealand Specialist Cheesemakers Association, Ben Ohau Road Cheese, Glenbrook Cheese Company, Kaikoura Cheese Limited, Little Farm Cheese Company, Mount Eliza Cheese Limited, Texas BBQ Foods Limited, Wangapeka Cheese Limited, Wairiri Buffalo, Farmstead Artisan Goats Cheese, Mahoe Cheese, Grinning Gecko Cheese Company, Emilio's cheese, Kingsmeade Cheese, Canterbury Cheesemongers, Cranky Goat Ltd, Cartwheel Creamery, Rati Manjari's Limited, Origin Earth NZ, Cilantro Cheese, Sentry Hill Organics, Over the Moon Dairy Company, and Mercer Cheese for attending today’s Template for Small Cheesemakers Workshop, and for sharing your knowledge and experiences – much appreciated! As part of the Food Act 2014, we want to ensure that New Zealand businesses are supported through easy-to-use and efficient legislation. This includes developing a single set of rules by way of a template for small cheesemakers that enables these businesses to comply across the Food and Animal Products Act regimes. For more information, visit www.mpi.govt.nz/food-safety/food-act-2014/
