Klein River Stanford

Klein River

In 2006, our cheese-maker along with a select few South African cheese-makers were chosen to go on the Burgundy Exchange. This was a program for South Africans to learn how the French make their cheese. Wow!

The sophisticated machinery, superhero concentration powers of the cheese-makers, eager apprentices and the snug cave dwelling cheese. Inspiring! A few inside secrets on cheese-making and affinage (the science and art of cheese maturation) was also learnt. It really is the little things that make big differences with cheese. So inspired was our cheese-maker that he decided to make this cheese. It was quite a challenge to get right in our little factory. Naming this cheese was not a challenge.
