Owned and operated by George Duncan and Wai Familton, Duncan’s is the result of a 22,000 km road trip circumnavigating the USA, where they drank their way through a multitude of sessionable and sometimes questionable beer offerings.

Andy Stroombergen has been the owner of the Waikanae Butchery since 2006, and involved with the butchery industry since leaving school at the age of 16. The store is renowned for not only great quality produce but also knowledgeable and friendly staff.

They are a one stop shop for all your meat needs, with regular customers travelling from far afield to stock up on favourite items.  One reviewer goes so far as to claim Waikanae Butchery sausages as the best in NZ, a claim backed by many gold medals from the Great New Zealand Sausage Competition over the years. With flavours ranging from the traditional pork or beef to white wine and fennel, why not try them for yourself!

With a huge range of gluten free products and cured meats, Waikanae Butchery is not your average butcher. While you're there you can also stock up on Kapiti Olive Oil, a range of marinades, sauces and spices.
