Who We Are

Nestled near the pristine waters of Lake Huron, Pine River Cheese has been an integral part of Ontario's culinary heritage for over a century. Founded in 1885 and operating as a farmer-owned co-operative since 1939, our cheese is more than just food; it’s a cherished memory for many who've grown up savoring its flavor by the lake. 

For generations, locals and visitors alike have stood at our observation deck, watching the magic of cheese-making unfold before their eyes. Our commitment to traditional small-batch production ensures that every cheese we create is infused with genuine passion and the freshest milk, supplied by our dedicated farmer-owners. 

​Evloving Pine River Cheese Products

While our foundation is firmly rooted in a rich history, celebrated with classics such as cheddars, Pine River Cheese has gracefully evolved. Today, we present a range of artisanal products, meticulously crafted with modern methods and advanced technology.​
