Welcome to Blue River
Here at the Blue River Sheep Dairy we believe in utilising nature’s goodness to provide you with healthy, award winning, quality products. Blue River’s thousands of sheep graze on the lush, green pastures of Southland providing us with fresh milk daily.
Some of New Zealand’s finest cheese makers are continuously improving our secret recipes to ensure quality radiates from all our award winning products.
The tradition of sheep milking goes back centuries and can be traced back to strong roots in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern countries. It is fitting, therefore, that the inspiration for Blue River products come from this part of the world.
Did you know that sheep’s milk is also extremely healthy for you and your family with up to twice as many minerals and vitamins as cow’s milk?
Welcome to Blue River, New Zealand's premier producer of sheep's milk cheese, sheep's milk ice cream and sheep's milk powder!
Mediterranean In Style,
Made in Southland!
