Klein River Farmstead offers an array of exceptional and award-winning South African cheeses.
All cheese is made using age-old artisinal methods on Klein River Farmstead, Stanford.
The pasture fed cows milk is sourced from within 12 km of the Farmstead and is free from hormones and antibiotics, while only the finest imported cultures and ingredients are used.
Once the cheese is made, the heads (or rounds) are kept in one of the seven maturation rooms and aged the traditional manner on wooden shelves.
This is known as Affinage – it is the science and art of cheese maturation. The temperature, lighting and humidity are monitored under very strict conditions while each cheese type has their own very specific needs. Depending on the type of cheese, Affinage may vary from one month to one year.
