Isle d'Orléans cheese dates from the earliest days of the colony in New France, around 1635 when the island's settlers made their first home-style cheese.

Our cheese in its three varieties

Isle d'Orleans-crafted cheese may be savoured in three forms, each corresponding to a stage in its production :

• La Faisselle is our free cheese.

• Allowed to dry for five or six days, it becomes Le Paillasson, a pan-melt delight.

• Pampered in our cellar for 28 to 30 days, Le Raffiné is a soft rind-washed cheese.
