Cheese in British Columbia - Farm House Cheese - Agassiz, BC


If you are ever driving through the Fraser Valley on the way to the coast or the Okanagan and are looking for a great gift to take to friends and family be sure to stop just off the highway at Farm House Cheese.  It is well worth the short trip into Agassiz to sample and buy these cheeses.  Personal Favorites include: La Pyramide, Alpine Gold and Lady Jane.  Owners George Boyes and Debra Amrein-Boyes love their special cows and goats and are proud to offer their world class cheese for your enjoyment.  Debra Amrein-Boyes, a renowned cheesemaker, is one of only twelve persons in western Canada and US who has been inducted into the prestigious French Cheese Guild, the “Guilde des Fromagers Confrerie de Saint-Uguzon”, which recognizes those who protect and continue the tradition of cheesemaking around the world

Debra has also written a book for home cheesemakers. “200 Easy Homemade Cheeses recipes-From Cheddar and Brie to Butter and Yogurt” was nominated in 2009 for a World Gourmand Cookbook Award and is available for purchase in the cheese shop, in many book stores, or online. The second edition came out in September 2013.

Alongside George and Debra, their adult children continue to work on the farm and in the cheesemaking business.

Wine and Cheese Pairings:

Sauvignon Blanc & La Pyramid - an exquisite, French style goat's milk cheese, ash ripened to a complex lingering flavour.  The crispness and minerality of the Sauvignon Blanc will celebrate the complexity of this unique cheese.

Sparkling & Lady Jane, similar to a French Chaource, this dense creamy cheese encased in a delicate mould has a meltingly smooth texture that calls for bubbles.

Pinot Noir & Alpine Gold - a washed curd and washed rind cheese with a golden orange rind lending a distinct flavour to the soft interior.  The earthiness of the Pinot Noir will lend itself well to this smelly straw coloured cheese.
