Shep Yselstein, the cheesemaker, trained in Switzerland, before coming back home to Ontario.

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 aged for 24 months old on cedar wood planks adding robust flavors to the cheese.

Handeck is a drier hard cheese with very rich and complex flavors and nutty overtones.

It pairs well with red wines such as Pinot Noir and also dark roasted beers.

All of the milk used comes from Shep's parents neighbouring dairy farm.
