Buffalo Mozzarella

Our beautiful buffalo Mozzarella is produced from a locally owned buffalo herd in Whangaripo Valley.

Handmade in small batches and packed in slightly salted brine, our buffalo Mozzarella is produced in 125gr. balls and makes a wonderful starter to any meal with fresh tomatoes and basil.

Buffalo mozzarella is a white creamy cheese with a very thin rind. When cut, it should ooze milk and have a sweet flavor with just a hint of sourness.

Buffalo Mozzarella is different to that of cow’s milk, originating from the West coast of Italy, Campana, it dates back to when water buffalos were brought to Italy by Goths during the migrations of the early medieval period.
