Meet Your Farmer: Terroir Cheese looks to the earth for its inspiration

Quality cheeses can be found at the local market

Shandra Lee Grace from Armstrong’s Terroir Cheese is a regular at local markets.

Where the foodies congregate she extols upon the virtues of the Armstrong company’s locally produced cheeses. And if when we caught up with her at Kelowna’s market was any indication, most are more than eagre to eat up what she has to say.

“The Okanagan has the best grass to make a delicious cheese,” she said, sharing the wisdom of founder and cheese maker Glen Marriott.

Marriott grew up surrounded by Dutch dairy farmers and what was originally a summer gig turned into a lifelong passion. He’s owned dairies in Ontario and Armstrong.

Terroir cheese is being made at two licensed dairies in Armstrong, but they will soon have their own facility.
