Our Cheeses


Upper Canada Cheese - Niagara Gold

Niagara Gold is a washed rind, semi-firm cheese fashioned after recipes developed by the Trappist Monks of the Loire Valley. This is a cheese with nutty, earthy overtones and mellow, buttery flavours. This luscious cheese is delicately mild and sweet when young, gaining pungency and piquant qualities with age. We begin to sell Niagara Gold after months of careful aging in our cellars.

Upper Canada Cheese - Comfort Cream

Comfort Cream is a camembert-style soft, white bloomy rind cheese with a silky, creamy, golden interior. Rich flavours of fresh truffles prevail with an intense, buttery palate and a long, tangy finish. This delicate and luscious artisanal cheese is hand salted, hand turned and hand wrapped. We store Comfort Cream in our temperature and humidity-controlled cellars for at least four weeks before sale. An additional few weeks of aging will see the cheese ripen and mature in flavour, texture and colour.

Upper Canada Cheese - Comfort Cream Smoked

Maple Smoked Comfort Cream has been cold smoked with maple chips to create a one-of-a-kind cheese.  It is the same cheese as Comfort Cream, but is not ripened as long to preserve the creamy texture after it has been smoked.

Upper Canada Cheese - Guernsey Girl

This fresh cheese is loosely modeled on both a Cypriot style cheese and, more precisely, a Scandinavian bread cheese.  It has a deliciously salty flavour and squeaky bite. Guernsey Girl holds its shape when fried or grilled; the surface caramelizes evenly and quickly, and the interior becomes wonderfully supple.

Upper Canada Cheese - Nanny Noire

This cheese is truly unique. Made in the camembert style, this surface ripened cheese is rolled in vegetable ash and then left in our ripening room for four weeks before it is ready for consumption.
