The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 65

Cheese Factory, Okoia

Cheese Factory, Okoia.

Seven miles from Wanganui, on the line of rail to Foxton, and has been in working order about two years. At present the shareholders place about 40 tons of cheese during the season on the market. The cheese is of a very good quality, and the price hitherto obtained has been satisfactory to the shareholders. Another source of profit are the piggeries, in which are fattened! stock for the bacon factory. The Okoia cheese has been found to stand a very trying voyage, is exported to Australia, and is almost solely used in the local market. In taste it is very like a Cheshire, and is a cheese that keeps well.
