Gunn's Hill Handeck Cheese
This is a hand crafted washed rind cow's milk cheese that is produced using the same methods as a typical Swiss mountain style cheese. It is available at 24 months old. It is delicately aged on pine wood planks adding robust flavours to the cheese. It is a hard cheese with very rich and complex flavours and nutty overtones.
Gunn's Hill Artisan Cheese is a small artisan cheese plant nestled within the rolling hills of Gunn's Hill Rd., in Oxford County, Ontario. The cheeses produced at Gunn's Hill Artisan Cheese are truly unique although you can taste the Swiss influence from techniques and recipes Shep learned while making cheese in the town of Handeck, in the Swiss Alps. Today, there are two full time cheese makers and a team of staff that work diligently to produce some of Canada's finest award winning cheeses. Owners Shep Ysselstein and Colleen Bator are proud of the little thriving business that is now seeing their cheeses in over 300 locations across Ontario!
