Katrina was an expert butter maker supplying many Ormondville homes from her cottage industry. Niels built a butter factory, Nikolaisons Alpha Butter Factory, which prospered, making around 550lbs (227kg) of butter per day. The butter & cheese factory was later enlarged with butter being railed to Napier to be shipped to London. The Factory later became N. NIKOLAISON & Sons and the store sold a large range of goods including farm tools, hardware, clothes etc. The store closed in the 1930s. The butter & cheese factory closed in 1960

Mr Bowron gave one of his very instructive lectures at Ormondville last evening ...
* the outlay for a butter factory was small, they could have one for about ?200 (2013 equivalent of $35,800)
* if he were asked what he thought of New Zealand butter he would answer that some of it was the worst butter in the world, although with proper management it could have been made the best
* the superiority of factory over hand-made butter consisted in all the butter being alike
* the fact was that people in London wanted good butter and were willing to pay a good price for it
* there was only one butter factory in the colony and that was at Edendale
* Mr Wilding advised the formation of a committee to canvas the district for support to the projected undertaking and as a consequence the following gentlemen were elected as a committee: Messrs W. Harker, J. Brabazon, R. R. Groom, J. J. Browne, C. R. Baines, G. Fotherfill, H. Wilding, G. E. Sass, J. Petersen, O. Eriksen, Prescot and Hobson. Mr F. C. Shugar was elected hon. sec.
Bush Advocate, 1 September 1891

(proposed to call it the Bush Farmers' Co-operative Association)
click this link to read the full meeting. Mr Groom, who was voted to the chair... Mr Siddells said he was afraid that in view of the little interest shown by the settlers it would be wiser to let the matter drop... Mr Westall thought that Messrs Ljungqvist, Bai and Nikolaison would be as well to propound the scheme...
Some other names at this meeting: Falconer, Groom, Julius Hensen, Leach, Lochhead, Magnussen, Mortensen, Norbye, Packer, Pedersen, Petterson, Plank, Pastor Ries, Wilson,
Bush Advocate, 2 February 1893

All persons who are interested in the proposal to establish a butter factory at Ormondville will see by an advertisement in another column that they are invited to attend a meeting in the Rechabite Hall on Saturday evening, at 7.30 p.m. We believe that the enterprise has been promised a lot of support, and there is no doubt that the Ormondville settlers will find that a butter factory will materially improve their condition in every way, enabling them to earn larger profits, and improving the value of their holdings. It has been conclusively proved by calculations made by experts and recognised farming authorities, and those calculations are based upon the lowest estimates, that dairying, when a factory is employed so as to make the butter of a uniform quality, and fit for export, will pay on small holdings better than sheep. The farming fraternity throughout the country are recognising and taking advantage of the fact. The province of Taranaki, in particular, has become one huge butter-making district, and it is found that the farmer is better off, and the man or company who run the factory contrive to make a comfortable living. We believe that Mr Smith, who has called this meeting, advocates forming the proposed dairy factory into a co-operative society, in which the milk suppliers will be the shareholders, and will thereby put the whole of the profits, instead of only a portion, direct into their own pockets. Mr Smith estimates that there are ample cows in the Ormondville district to support a factory, and the number is capable of being largely increased. We prognosticate that Mr Smith will have a large and influential meeting, and will meet with unanimous support for his scheme
* some say Niels Nikolaison opened the butter factory in 1891. Some say it opened in 1892. The above says they were still thinking about it in 1893. By 1907 Niels Nikolaison was winning at all the Agricultural Shows with his export quality butter from the Alpha Dairy Company at Ormondville
