About The Mariposa Dairy Cheese Plant
All of their goat and sheep milk cheeses are made in true “Celebrity” style. Sea salt is added to the cheese which brings out the delicate flavour of the cheese – and does not add unwanted iodine to the health conscious diet. Animal rennet free, their 100% pure goat and sheep milk cheese is made exclusively from Ontario milk.
The cheesemaker starts early in the morning pasteurizing the milk and adding our select cultures and animal free rennet (microbial enzyme) to create the personality of the cheese. The microbial enzyme and culture then work their magic with controlled time and temperature to create the curd, which will become the soft unripened chevre cheese. We transfer the curds and whey to the special bags, and using our press, start the slow process of draining the whey.
