Food and Beverage

Waimakariri has a strong history of agricultural production and the early settlements were established to service the needs of farming as well as forestry and milling.

Today the production from the land has become more specialised, with the fresh flavours of Waimakariri's food available from local roadside stalls, farmers' markets, the local cafes and restaurants.

You can also experience the local flavours and meet the passionate locals on the North Canterbury Food & Wine Trail or Order the Guide.
