Closer to cheddar in texture this cow’s milk cheese is mild and pleasant when young but as it ages it develops nuttier and sharper, saltier flavours. Single sourced from a historic PEC Ontario dairy farm, Jean, it’s 75 year old owner, is still milking her cows daily. Great with lighter reds (Gamay) or barrel fermented Chardonnay.

Ingredients: milk, bacterial culture, organic rennet, sea salt.

The Fifth Town Artisan Cheese Company is a privately owned, environmentally and socially responsible enterprise producing fine hand made cheeses using fresh, locally produced cow, goat and buffalo milk. The product development processes reflect the spirit of the Fifth Town brand, which aims to integrate traditional methods, contemporary tastes, and craftsmanship with local terroir.

Situated on 20 acres of agricultural land and facing Lake Ontario on the eastern ridge of Prince Edward County, the 4800 square foot Fifth Town dairy processing, retail and educational facility enhances the practice of artisan cheese making with advanced sustainable design. The project achieved Platinum LEED accreditation under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program in March 2009.

At Fifth Town, they believe in honestly expressing the beautiful Prince Edward County terroir with which they are blessed. Whether it is the cow milk from Jean’s farm down the road on County Road 7 or the goat milk from the Leroux family farm an hour away, they craft something truly authentic that connects us to the land we live on, giving us taste, sense and pride of place.
