Ngaere Triump Cheese Factory

 I don't get to Stratford much lately but it happened to be a lovely day this week when we passed this historic dairy on the way there. I had taken a great picture of it many years ago but can't find it so have been wanting another one.

The Ngaere (pronounced Nie-ree) Co-operative Dairy Factory was formed in 1893 and built in 1894 to make cheese. 'Triumph' was the brand name of the cheese that was exported. It closed in 1977.
