About Stonehouse Cheese
The Stonehouse Cheese factory is situated on the R326 at the mouth of the Akkedis Berg Pas. At the place where the rolling grain lands take on the mountains before opening out to the sea and lagoon at Stanford. This small dairy farm on the Klein Rivier now produces its own cheese. This exciting development should be a great addition to the areas fantastic wine farms and other cheese producers close by. Stanford has become a wonderful central point for great wines,food,cheese, fynbos and natural scenery. Stonehouse is a valuable addition to this already interesting area.
The farm is 250ha of natural splendour. High mountains and lovely rivers, irrigated pastures and modern dairy all add to the experience of a South African farm. Our aim is to manufacture on traditional methods fantastic boutique cheeses for the food loving market in the country.
We have over 30 years experience in the dairy bussiness so a natural step would be to grow into cheese making. Using full cream and traditional methods we are making a natural creamy cheese.
Our initial cheese will be the white mould cheeses of Brie and Camenbert. Later on we will make various hard cheeses like the Tete de Moine styled cheese.
