Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese

We took advantage of the great weather today to drive over to Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese shop located south of Woodstock, Ontario which just happens to be the dairy capital of Canada. The area has a long history of cheese making and it’s nice to see this continuing at Gunn’s Hill. Owner and operator Shep Ysselstein graciously gave us a tour of the new facility and walked us through his cheese making process. Shep currently produces three Swiss style varieties of cheese – Gunn’s Hill Hard, Semi-Hard, and Soft. All of the cheese is made with milk that comes from his father’s dairy farm next door. We left with pieces of the hard and semi-hard cheeses and will be happily tucking into them later.
