Tomme des Demoiselles is a pressed firm cheese that is aged for more than 6 months. It is made from whole milk supplied from a single herd of Canadienne cows. This rare breed accompanied original settlers to Quebec in the early 1600’s. Their feed comes entirely from the Magdalen Islands region.
Two beautiful small hills on the Havre Aubert landscape inspired the cheese dairy in christening this cheese.
Seasonal cheese, from September until December.
