Tenara - 'a warm greeting or welcoming'. Also named after a small conical shaped mountain near to Kaikoura.

Tenara is our soft ash coated goat cheese weighing in between 230/280 grams depending on the season. At 14 days old the Tenara develops a predominantly Geotrichum rind (toad skin) with an interesting flurry of native flora. The Tenara has a soft fudgy interior with incredibly subtle flavours of walnut and cinnamon. The Tenara intensifies over maturation and has been aged for up to 150 days.

 In 2017 The Tenara was entered into the New Zealand Cheese Awards where it scored 98.5/100, winning its class category.

 Incredible with asparagus, beetroot, venison, lamb, honey, figs, blueberries to name a few.

 Main Season - between August and April.
