About The Olde Creamery

The Olde Creamery had humble beginnings. Originally built in 1892, the building served as a creamery for local farmers until the late 1930's when it became a fertilizer depot. It was then "home" to many families,enjoying the three acres of old English trees and extensive gardens.

The current owners purchased the very derilict building in 2001 with a vision of creating a country cafe in the historic building.The labour of love was completed restoring the building to its former glory, retaining the "olde worlde" feel about it and utilizing as much of the original features and materials as we could.

We pride ourselves on the peaceful ambience we have created away from the hustle and bustle of city life yet we are only 12 minutes from Hamilton, Cambridge and Te Awamutu.

The Olde Creamery is a boutique Wedding venue offering complete packages enabling couples to marry, have glorious photos taken in the gardens and the reception held onsite.
"Rose Cottage" is a delightful B&B available to hire for the Bride and Groom and the Homestead is available to hire for the Bridal party to prepare for the special day -from the hair dressser, make up artist to the photographer.

The Conference facilties are purpose built and housed in a private upstairs room.
It can be rented for half day or full day meetings with full catering onsite.
Larger groups utilise the cafe room-being closed to the general public.
Breakfast meetings for up to 20 in the Cafe room.
Hours by arrangement.
Please phone for costings.
