Nestled in the foothills of the Tararuas, Eketahuna, once synonymous with remoteness, has been put on the map in recent years by ground-breaking cheese maker Biddy Fraser-Davies and her award winning Cwmglyn (pronounced coom-glin) cheese.
October is New Zealand Cheese Month, so look out for cheesey events in your locale. I love that this is a grass roots event, organised by a pioneering cheese maker.
I’ll have a car in Eketahuna so if you want to come but can only get there by train, message me on the comments, I can pop down to Masterton and pick you up. Hope to see you there!
