Fox Hill Cheese House – Fenugreek Havarti

November 2, 2011

Rick from the Fox Hill Cheese House in Nova Scotia was the nicest cheesemaker I had the pleasure of meeting on my recent trip to Halifax. This delightful, family-run, farmstead business is quality through and through.  Sustainable farming practices are employed; they proudly plant the seed, grow the grass, milk the cows, and make fantastic cheese, yogurt, gelato and milk.  This is a textbook example of a cheesemaker that focuses on producing good milk which is of course the lifeblood of good cheese.

Caerphilly is the only traditional cheese associated with Wales, though the one profiled here was made in Nova Scotia, Canada. It’s a bright, lemony cheese that is great for snacking, drinking with a lovely wheat beer or in a sandwich or burger with mustard. No wonder this was a staple in miners’ lunches!
