Mahoe is a family-run organic farm and cheesery in the Bay of Islands. They have 60 friesian cows and a passion for excellent cheeses - their cheese maker Jake won the NZ Champions of Cheese Best Cheesemaker award 2 years in a row! 

This month’s blue cheese is creamy, but has a firm texture, so it won’t crumble as much as most blues. Stop and have a sniff before you bite into it - there is a hint of sweetness in the aroma that’s a bit unusual for a blue - and smelling the cheese will help you taste all of the tangy flavours!
