At Kootenay Alpine nothing’s added to hide the sweet flavours of our mountain cheese. With no preservatives added to simplify the aging process, the mountain air creates a rich, complex cheese unique to our farm.
At Kootenay Alpine, during the aging process, the cheese wheels are turned and rubbed regularly to develop a natural rind. No herbs are used to hide its flavor and no preservatives simplify its aging process. When finished, the sweet subtle flavours of the pasture grass and clovers, the health of the soil, and the fresh Kootenay mountain air can be detected in this flavourful, complex, handcrafted mountain cheese.
