Product Details
Brand: Back Forty Artisan Cheese
Product origin: Ontario
Production level: Artisanal
Milk type & treatment: Sheep - Raw

The Algonquin name meaning “Long Step” was given to the small village just north of Back Forty Artisan Cheese due to it’s proximity along the well travelled native portage route which connected the Madawaska River system to the Mississippi River system. A fitting name for this cheese as it also involves the “long step” of frequent rind washings which encourages the growth of brevibacterium linens (b-linens) which is the natural and desirable mold responsible for the characteristic orange rind, smell and flavor.

This cheese is made with raw sheep milk.
