This month cheese club feature one Ontario cheese maker, Quality Cheese and two Québec cheese makers, La Fromagerie Montebello and la Fromagerie Rang 9.
The Ferme Louis d’Or is a family-run company operated by four generations of the Morin family. They changed to organic farming in the middle of the 1980s. The pastures provide the herd of Holstein and Jersey cows with clover, timothy grass, bluegrass and other organic grains. Furthermore, the cows are never given antibiotics or hormones. As a result of this care, the milk used to produce the cheese is of exceptional quality.
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.
Cheese for Christmas?
