Village Cheese Company
Village Cheese starts in the pasture with hand-picked cows bred for milk quality and fed with lush local grasses of the Okanagan Valley. Everyday great care is taken milking cows and transporting this top grade milk from the family farm to the cheese factory. Cheese is actually concentrated milk, so starting with the best milk possible, sets the stage for superior cheese.
Artisan production means doing things by hand; like warming fresh milk with natural cultures and kosher approved rennet; cutting the curd and turning it many times to remove the whey before finally filling the hoops that shape the cheese.
They use slow acting cultures to maximize the flavours that give that wonderful lingering aftertaste on the palette. Although it takes a couple of hours longer to produce our cheese, it is a labour of love created by cheesemakers who have great expertise.
