The Cheese Barn at Matatoki Ltd

We are a Cheese Factory, Licensed Cafe, Gift Shop, and Animal Farm on the Hauraki Rail Trail, 5km from Kopu and 10km from Thames. We make award winning organic cheeses and yoghurts and stock a wide range of deli foods that go well with the cheese.


Come and relax in tranquil country surroundings and enjoy an organic coffee or wine with your cheese board. Watch the cheesemakers through the viewing window or feed the animals. We make a wide range of organic cheese and yoghurt which we sell in the shop along with lots of lovely chutneys, relishes, olives, jams, fudge and salami to name a few of the things we stock. Ice-cream is also a hit with kids and adults alike. Our gift area has lots of Kiwi and Country style gifts with gift baskets a speciality.

The Hauraki Rail Trail is just down the road so if you are planning a bike ride we are a must see, only 5km from Kopu. Park and ride from our car park is also available.
