Ivanhoe Cheese began as a small dairy cooperative in Ivanhoe, Ontario. For over a century, we specialized in artisan aged cheddar. In 1986, we became a private company, expanding our manufacturing operation and our palette with a variety of specialty cheeses. We came full circle in 2008 when we joined with Ontario’s largest dairy cooperative, Gay Lea Foods.
True to our beginnings, we continue to produce award-winning artisan cheddars, as well as an extensive selection of specialty cheeses including Naturally Smoked Gouda and flavoured Monterey Jacks. We even offer Kosher and Halal varieties. We have the passion of our members and customers to thank for our success. And like to think our company is not unlike our cheese: better with age.
You can find a huge variety of cheeses at the Ivanhoe Cheese Factory Outlet including all the cheeses made in the factory and a number of imported cheeses. They always have samples for you to try, as well as fresh curds. They stock butter, milk, local jams and jellies, local maple syrup, apple cider and crackers to go with the cheese. T Ivanhoe Cheese is a short drive from the 401, 20 minutes north of Belleville on Highway 62, in the Hamlet of Ivanhoe. You can buy an authentic old-fashioned milkshake or a cone, hand-scooped from a variety of rich premium-quality ice creams produced for Ivanhoe Cheese especially by Kawartha Dairies of Bobcaygeon. There is also a wide selection of arts, crafts and fine antiques.
