Our Café and the Origin Earth Cheese Counter offers locals and visitors a true Hawke’s Bay experience. Focusing on local food the Café menu reflects Hawke’s Bay’s seasonal bounty while the Origin Earth Cheese Counter gives you the opportunity try and buy the award-winning Origin Earth products.

We are advocates for a sustainable food economy that is ‘good, clean and fair’ and believe the best tasting food is locally grown and produced, and harvested in ways that are ecologically sound by people who are taking care of the land for future generations. In line with our values we have recently introduced a “Milk Bottle Refill” service this is aimed at reducing plastic to look after the environment and to support Origin Earth’s business model of sustainability – to take advantage of this service visit the Origin Earth Cheese Counter.

Set in spacious grounds and surrounded by an abundance of fruit trees the Cafe is both dog and child friendly and is accessible. There are drinking bowls for the dogs and a sandpit with toys for the kids.

The complex is situated on one of Hawke’s Bay’s many cycleways, so if your mode of transport is bike there are bike racks as well.

After tasting the cheeses at the Origin Earth Cheese Counter, order a platter, cheese board or one of the offerings from the cafe cabinet, add a glass of local wine or beer or a cup of Hawke’s Bay roasted coffee and sit back and relax.

The staff of Origin Earth look forward to welcoming and giving you a unique Hawke’s Bay Experience.
