I traveled to the United States over the holiday. On the drive back I decided that we needed a rest stop aka. a cheese break. I decided to check out The Upper Canada Cheese Company store in Jordon, Ontario (Canada). The store is just off of the QEW highway, exit 55.
I was traveling from Niagara Falls towards Toronto. The cheese store was about 3 minutes off of the QEW with easy off and easy on.
The store is attractive and nicely decorated. The staff was friendly and greeted me as I entered the store with my children. From within the store they have a couple of viewing windows where you can see cheese being made and stored.
There was not any cheese being made while we were there, probably because of the holidays.
The staff offered us samples of several cheeses. My son and I thought the Nosey Goat Cheese samples were particularly good.
The store also carries many other quality cheeses besides their store brand. They sell compotes, jams, vinegars and other things cheese related. It was definitely worth the short detour off of the QEW and our visit ended up being the perfect rest stop before finishing our drive home.
