Increases in the cost of raw milk are driving changes to pricing for cheese. Our Cheese Club is still great value for quality Canadian artisan cheese.
I don’t know about you, but when I am stressed I try to go to my Happy Place, and my Happy Place is the kitchen! I was raised in my grandmother’s and mother’s kitchen where they both cooked simple but wonderful and tasty food. So when I need to refocus I cook comfort food! This week, our kitchen smelled very good with aromas of stew simmering, cookies and muffins baking.
Our shop will likely remain open for the next foreseeable future, as we sell food.
It is really important to keep selling our Canadian artisan cheeses to help keep these small-scale cheesemakers and, in turn, all the family farms that they support by buying their milk from them.
We feel great urgency to help keep this production chain, if slowly, at least moving.
This month we decided to feature one remarkable cheese maker: Glengarry Fine Cheese. They are located in Eastern Ontario just north of the village of Lancaster, on the shores of the St. Lawrence River. Margaret Peters-Morris & her team make delicious cheeses from the fresh milk of their Holsteins raised on the family farm. Margaret, a self-taught cheese maker, went from making cheese at home to running the most successful cheese shop in the region. So enjoy three of their their mouth-watering offerings!
This Month Cheese Club features 3 Quebec cheeses. Part of the club is a wonderfully crafted goat’S milk Chevrechon from La Fromagerie Fritz Kaiser of Noyan, a tasty semi-soft named le Guillaume Tell from la Fromagerie Le Domaine Féodal of Berthierville , and from Fromagerie La Station of Compton Québec great hard award winning cheese Alfred le Fermier. A real treat!
