These handmade cheese curds are produced fresh weekly using milk from our family dairy farm. Only small batches of curd are made and then hand cut. The natural colour and taste of the milk is reflected in the curds. They are immensely rich in flavor and their 'squeak' can be enjoyed as a great snack or melted in a number of delicious ways. These artisan made curds pair well with a variety of light and fragrant wines and beers and also with fruit based cheese jellies.
