Our Roots

Steeped in history, knowledge, and stories of new beginnings and hard work, Blyth Farm cheese has more to it than what meets the eye.

     Paul VanDorp, the founder of Blyth Farm Cheese, immigrated to Blyth from the Netherlands. Before setting up shop in Blyth, Paul learned from his neighbours in the Netherlands, and became an expert in Gouda cheese - the most popular Dutch cheese. He felt that making this cheese was a connection and tribute to his heritage. 

Mixing his traditional roots with innovation, Paul took the infamous Gouda cheese making tradition and created it with goats milk instead of cows milk - filling a gap in the industry, and creating a stamp of individuality for Blyth Farm Cheese.

     Award-winning cheese makers don’t just appear. The VanDorps have been successful farmers and cheese makers for generations. Paul became a certified milk grader and receiver, and in 2011 received the permits from OMAFRA to operate the cheese plant.
