Handmade local produce
Here’s a snapshot of who’s in our neighbourhood.
You can’t go past a Denheath custard square for a much-needed sweet treat. Ask for them in cafes throughout the district or drop in to their Timaru headquarters on Mill Street and grab a couple for the road.
Barkers of Geraldine make chutneys and jellies, fruit syrups, jams and curds, as well as a range of savoury sauces. Their products are crafted from high-quality ingredients, local wherever possible, and are free of preservatives, colouring and flavouring.
Drop in and see them at the shop on Talbot Street to get your fill.
Clearwater’s Organic Dairy produce high-quality cream-top yoghurt from milk produced on their organic dairy farm. All their produce is totally natural – just organic milk and probiotic cultures. Nothing is added or removed. Their range includes cream-top yoghurt with a touch of organic clover honey, rice pudding and clotted cream.
Look for their brand in local supermarkets and dairies throughout the region.
Talbot Forest Cheese in Geraldine produce a delicious range of specialty cheeses, including the award-winning Mt Peel Blue.
They have deli on Talbot Street. Drop in to make your selection – then head to one of our local wineries for a delicious bottle of pinot to complete the picture.
When we say real fruit ice cream, we mean it. Hosts Giles and Crissie grow their own berries and stone fruit, or source fruit locally. Pick one or two fruits and see them mixed before your eyes with vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt. Served in a waffle or a cone. Gluten free options available.
Check out these flavours! Strawberry, raspberry, gooseberry, blueberry, golden peach, blackboy peach, banana, mixed berry, boysenberry and black doris plum.
People drive for miles for these ice creams, and to hang out in the courtyard and garden. Don't just take our word for it, check out their Tripadvisor reviews!
