It is with pride that Fox Hill Cheese House crafts over 20 varieties of cheese using milk from their own herd of Holstein cows. A small herd allows them to pay strict attention to the quality forage fed to their cows and to the production of clean, pure milk that is drug and hormone-free.
“Quality, consistency, service and education is what we focus on, what we try to do,” says owner Jeanita Rand. “I think that is what people want if they are coming to us.”
Melissa Rand, cheese maker for Fox Hill and Jeanita and Rick’s daughter, started out in the family business after graduating from Acadia University. A recent trip to Toronto, where she visited a local cheese house and met cheese expert Gurth Pretty, inspired her to experiment even more with their varieties of cheese.
But Fox Hill has more than just cheese. When you visit you can sample a long list of amazing products from cheese to yogurt to milk and gelato.
In 2009 Fox Hill received the Taste Nova Scotia Quality Driven Member Award. They are committed to using quality fresh milk to bring you a truly unique dairy product. At Fox Hill Cheese House, they are proud to plant the seed, to grow the grass, milk the cow and make specialty products for you.
2010 is an exciting year for Fox Hill Cheese House, with the expansion of a new processing room, additional cold room and storage space and the opening of an additional retail facility at the new Seaport Market in Halifax. Which means that their product is even more accessible!
