Our values, Why Glengarry fine cheese
Glengarry Fine Cheese is situated on the farm of Margaret Peters-Morris’ family ancestral lands in the corner of South Glengarry Township on the shores of the St. Lawrence River.
The land which is farmed by the Peters family is providing the quality hay, grass and grains which the Holstein herd is fed each year. The dairy is across the road from the cheese factory, the milk that goes in our quality artisan cheese begins at the family farm.
Margaret began making cheese from the farm milk back in the early 1990’s. We are of Dutch heritage therefore, gouda was always the number one choice of cheese to be made. The overall love of cheese in our family propelled Margaret’s interest to add more varieties to the repertoire with trips abroad to learn more about farmstead Cheesemaking and eventually developing recipes that are the basis of the varieties produced in the plant today. To have an artisan plant was Margaret’s dream and is now her life’s vocation, to be on a farm making cheese in the county where she grew up.
