Who Exactly is The Junction?

We are your local one-stop, old fashioned community grocer. We stock staples like milk, bread, and eggs, we use minimal or recyclable packaging, we support New Zealand producers and we love good food, especially Cheese.

Our cheese cases house the entire range of Thorvald sheep milk cheese and Little River cows milk dairy and cheese which are made in our factory in Upper Moutere. These sit alongside other New Zealand made cheese from around the country and a couple of imports like real Parmesan. Locally produced jams and chutneys, pates, meats, and olive oils complete the picture.

The building has a character all of its own which we love. It was once a dairy factory producing cheese and butter using local milk, just like us.
