The Berry's are a 4th generation Otago farming family. Whitestone Cheese was founded in 1987 as a diversification during the 1980's rural downturn and a series of crippling droughts.
The original factory was set up in a commercial garage with milk sourced from local farms and one cheese variety Farmhouse was launched. The business slowly grew as an extension of the farming operation until today's purpose built factory was commissioned in 1996. Son Simon joined the business with a new set of skills and the farm was sold to concentrate on the growing the exciting family enterprise.
The Whitestone family is committed to exceeding customer expectations, by creating world class cheeses through innovative excellence and teamwork.
