  3. Stories Behind Waikatos Food
Fresh, seasonal, locally grown, artisanal - and irresistibly delicious. This is the approach to eating throughout much of the ‘food basket’ Waikato region. From top cafes and restaurants and the numerous farmers' markets to award-winning cheese, ice cream and other dairy products, to seasonal asparagus or blueberries (and other berries too), from locally produced wine and craft beer to pasture-raised meats and free-range poultry, the Waikato offers a cornucopia of foodie experiences.

No surprise in the Waikato, one of the country’s most bountiful food production regions, that fresh, seasonal and local is quite simply the best.
