Buffalo make market entrance


The Clevedon Valley Buffalo Company is bringing its award-winning buffalo cheeses and yoghurt to the September Tamahere Market.

“We are looking forward to seeing their range and are so proud that this and other premium items at the market continue our emphasis on NZ-made products,” says market organiser Jane Manson.

The buffalo milk to make the range of cheeses – mozzarella, ricotta, blue and gouda – and yoghurt comes from a 200 head herd of riverine buffalo farmed at Clevedon.

Buffalo milk contains much more protein and calcium than cows’ milk. It is higher in fat but has roughly half the cholesterol of cows milk, the company says on its website.

Making a return to the market on Saturday, September 21 will be the popular and spectacular bromeliad plants.

Right next door to the bromeliad site will be the Tarrant’s stall with dyed flax containers,says Manson.

“A combination that would make a perfect gift for someone else or a treat for yourself to brighten up a corner at your own place.”

There will also be a number of groups fundraising at the market – from young people raising funds to go on school trips to Bellyful, the organisation which supports new mums by providing meals after their babies are born.

The Tamahere Market is held on the third Saturday of each month in St Stephen’s Church grounds on the corner of Airport Rd and Tamahere Drive. Click for more information, including directions.
