Mainland Cheddar Cheese is a product of its environment and Mainland has a natural advantage. New Zealand has rich fertile valleys, watered by pure mountain streams and soft gentle rain creating endless grazing pastures of lush sweet green grass year round. This, plus a cool temperate climate ideal for the slow natural aging of the finest cheddar cheese, gives Mainland its unique and distinctive flavor.
New Zealand is known for its long-established dairy heritage and producing fine quality dairy products. These include the extraordinary rich and sharp Mainland family of naturally aged cheddar, from the heartland of New Zealand.
