Farmstead Fresh Goat's cheese and Milk from Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

Consciously crafted

From Paddock to Plate

Nieuwenhuis Farmstead Cheese is distinctly different. We are specialist artisans using milk straight from our farm to produce authentic, handcrafted goat’s cheese. We’re proud to be part of the small number of Farmstead cheesemakers in New Zealand.


Farmstead Fresh

Made of Hawke’s Bay

You’ll find us in the beautiful Waikareao Road Valley, near Te Hauke. Our fresh cheeses and goat’s milk are available locally. Come see our stall at the Hawke’s Farmers Market every Sunday.


A decade in the making..

Good cheese takes time. Our journey began nearly ten years ago when we started breeding dairy goats on our Hawke’s Bay farm. We then set off around Europe for a year of learning authentic cheesemaking techniques from the best local artisans.

Nieuw - en - huis

Simply pronounced new - in - house by our New Zealand family and friends.

It is less complicated than it looks! Nieuwenhuis is our Dutch family name. Nieuwenhuis translates to living in a new house. We see this as a fitting name for our brand as our business is so closely tied to our new home. Most importantly we are a family business. Our ‘Nieuwenhuis’ can been seen in our logo.


Happy Goats. Good Milk. Great Cheese
