About Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese
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. This small scale artisan cheese plant is the result of years of dreaming and planning by owner, operator and cheese maker Shep Ysselstein. 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 Swiss Alps.
The cheese plant is located within the heart of the Dairy Capital of Canada and is only minutes away from downtown Woodstock. The milk used to create the cheeses comes from the neighbouring family dairy farm, Friesvale Farms, where the finest Canadian milk is produced. To ensure cheeses that are of top quality and taste Gunn's Hill Artisan Cheeses are hand crafted using traditional cheese-making methods.
Visitors are welcome to visit Gunn's Hill Artisan Cheese to experience the unique area, learn about dairy farming and local agriculture, take a tour, be a cheese maker for a day, and most importantly, simply enjoy wonderfully delicious cheeses.
Due to the expansion of our cheese making facility we cannot accommodate any cheese maker for a day requests at this time. Check back in January 2015 to inquire about bookings!
