Introducing: Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese

February 1, 2012

I’m excited to introduce you to one of Ontario’s newest cheesemakers, Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese from Woodstock, Ontario. Shep Ysselstein is the owner and cheesemaker, he’s a young guy, not even 30, and is making excellent quality Swiss-style washed rind cheeses. The hard cheese is similar to a Gruyere, the semi hard is more like a Gouda (he is Dutch after all), and he also makes a soft cheese, which I did not get to try yet. Shep has been making cheese at his dairy only since August 2011 (it’s February 1, 2012 now), and the results are most impressive. This is certainly one cheesemaker to watch!
