Hand crafted in Ontario, washed rind cheese made from 100% sheep milk. Aged at least two years, this firm cheese with a slightly dry texture is buttery yellow on the interior with pleasantly crunchy crystals appearing closer to the rind. Expect a mild sharpness, aromas of cooked milk and pasta, and caramalized flavours of baked bread with a salty lingering finish. Classic!

As guilt-free as eggs get. This cooperative of Amish farmers in Aylmer, Ontario raises hens in small flocks of 100 to 500 birds in tents on pasture. Weather permitting, tent doors are left open. These happy hens eat grass or organic GMO-free grain and veggie scraps, with full access to nest boxes and perches – though the eggs themselves are not certified organic these are some happy eggs!
