Founded in 2000, Back Forty is a small creamery and cheese shop located on a farm in the hamlet of Mississippi Station Ontario where cheesemaker Jeff Fenwick hand crafts artisanal cheeses of the highest quality. Back Forty’s original raw ewe milk cheeses have grown into a local favorite and have become loved and trusted by many of the provinces top chefs and cheese lovers alike.

Using traditional old world methods and 100% natural unpasteurized sheep’s milk, each cheese is made by hand in very small batches and then carefully tended to and aged from two to nine months. In our petite fromagerie we produce five delectable cheeses: Flower Station, Madawaska, Bonnechere, Highland Blue, and the new washed rind called Ompah.

In addition to the many quality restaurants and fine food retailers listed on our site, you can purchase Back Forty Artisan Cheese direct from Jeff and Jenna Fenwick at their on farm cheese shop, open Saturdays throughout the summer from 10am-4pm, starting July 1st.
