Cheesiest town in the South

Before the town — which has a population of about 600 — was called Edendale, it was known by the names Maorirua, Mataura Plains and Stuart’s Bush.

Edendale is dominated by its milk-processing plant that was originally run by the Southland Dairy Co-operative and is now operated by Fonterra.

The Edendale factory began as a cheese-processing plant and in the 1990s expanded to include milk powder processing.

The plant has been expanded several times since and was in 2009 the largest raw milk-processing plant in the world.

Wisconsin dairies were among National Mastitis Council’s “cream of the crop” for producing quality milk during its Feb. 2 National Dairy Quality Awards program.
