Welcome to Upper Canada Cheese Company
Artisan cheeses, pure and simple.
In the first small, modern Niagara creamery in generations, Upper Canada Cheese Company hand crafts premium artisanal cheeses from the milk of local Guernsey cows. We express the unique terroir of our extraordinary Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere region with rich Guernsey milk and the talents of our cheese makers.
Each day, fresh, pure Guernsey cow milk is transformed into cheeses of uncommon taste and texture, revealing a subtle range of flavours influenced by the seasons, forage and feed. Then, our cheeses are ideally aged in our own cellars until they're ready for you. This is the whole food, farm to table idea; a minimum of food processing intervention to produce the purest cheeses possible.
