Grand Trunk

Farmstead Gruyère

(7 reviews)

M.F. 40 %, Moisture 28 %, Aged 18 - 24 months, 170g

What appears to be a crumbly interior is actually rich and creamy on the palate with a nice balance of salt. The aromatic rind gives this cheese a contrasting texture to the interior and typical aromas associated with washed rind cheeses.

Grand Trunk is named after the old railway bridge of the former Grand Trunk Railway in St. Marys.

Grand Trunk tastes excellent in sandwiches or on a cheese platter with fruits, dried meat and rustic bread. It is a great cheese for fondue or grilled cheese sandwiches. Grand Trunk is unique in its appearance and taste.

    I was one of the judges for the specialty cheese class at the British Empire Cheese Show in Belleville and vouch for the great flavour and texture of the cheeses from Stonetown Cheese
