Herma’s News – We love foods made in Ontario. Also NEW products have arrived.

Let us not forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man. When tillage begins, other arts will follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization. – Daniel Webster

Back Forty Artisan Cheese – A great Ontario Cheese Maker!

Back Forty is a small creamery and cheese shop located on a farm in the hamlet of Mississippi Station, Ontario where cheesemaker Jeff Fenwick hand crafts artisanal cheeses of the highest quality.

Using traditional old world methods and 100% natural unpasteurized sheep’s milk, each cheese is made by hand in very small batches and then carefully tended to and aged from two to nine months. – Back Forty Artisan Cheese

Featured Cheese of the Week

Bonne Chere

A distinct feature of our Bonnechere is the rind that is toasted over an open flame before aging. This painstaking process, traditional for certain Basque cheeses, imparts a delicious caramel essence which permeates the body of the cheeses as it ages, and provides a delicious contrast to the tangy and fruity body of the cheese.Back Forty Artisan Cheese

Other Back Forty Artisan cheeses offered in coming days…Madawaska, Flower Station and a Buffalo Blue that we are excited to introduce.

Seed to Sausage – A great Ontario Sausage Maker!

We make it our goal to use as much local produce and as few additives and preservatives as possible in our meats. It is our belief that the tastiest food can only be made with the best ingredients, which is why we take great care selecting our suppliers.

We like things simple, and we like them delicious. That’s why we hand-craft our meats. Every. Single. Cut.Seed to Sausage, Tichborne, ON

Featured Salami of the Week

Jalapeño Blue Cheese Salami

We picked a peck of pickled peppers and popped them in. Perfect! The jalapeños bring the heat, and award-winning Bleu d’Elizabeth cheese, brings cool distinction to this study in contrasts. – Seed to Sausage
