Our Cheese

Monforte Dairy

Monforte Dairy has been producing delicious quality artisanal cheeses in Stratford, Ontario since 2004. This dairy is known as one of the premier cheese producers in Ontario. All of the milk comes from local Mennonite farmers’ herds of sheep, goats, water buffalo and cow. Monforte cheese is known far and wide for its extensive range of popular cheeses, like the signature Toscano aged sheep’s milk cheese, or buttery, unctuous Bliss. Crème Fraiche is offering a great selection of this cheese, which you will be familiar with if you are a frequenter of farmer’s markets in the GTA. Visit website

Crossroad Farms

We are carrying the Crossroad Farms Sheep Gouda, which is not easy to find in Toronto. The Oxford County farm had an excess of sheep’s milk, and enlisted the expertise of Gunn’s Hill sheep maker Shep Ysselstein to create this mellow and sweet gouda-style cheese.
