Attention Cheese Lovers: It’s All About Local Cheese!

We love the enthusiasm of our customers and supporters, and we haven’t failed to notice that you love good cheese as much as we do! The love for amazing local, handcrafted cheeses from Ontario and Quebec is strong.

If you love cheese, you probably have fellow cheese lovers in your life. What better gift for them this holiday season than our Everybody Loves a Good Cheese Gift Basket?

We offer a great selection of Québec and Ontario cheeses and create gourmet gift baskets to satisfy cheese aficionados.  These cheese baskets are made fresh according to cheese availability, your specifications, and budget.

We will prepare for you a well-balanced variety of cheeses paired with condiments and crackers.  In the photo you will find an example of a cheese gift basket bursting with a great selection of local cheeses.

With 100kg of cheese arriving at the store in late November, there is no better time to put together the cheese basket of your dreams.

Call us today or order online!

Chocolate Lovers Don’t Despair

If you live in the Almonte, Ottawa, or the Outaouais region, you have no doubt come across the recent huge success of Hummingbird Chocolate Maker. Since they won the UK-based Academy of Chocolate Awards – the 2016 Golden Bean, we have difficulty keeping Hummingbird bars on our shelves.

Chocolate lovers don’t despair! Did you know there is another great chocolate product made close to Almonte? These are the exceptional chocolate bars handmade by chocolatier Ludwig Ratzinger of Maberly.
