    About:

    Monforte Dairy originally opened in Millbank, Ontario, 12 years ago by owner and operator, Ruth Klahsen. It is now located in Stratford, Ontario. Ruth has had a longstanding culinary career, graduating in the first class of the Stratford Chef School in the 1980s. Ruth has worked in many fantastic restaurants in Stratford over the years, as well as spent time staging abroad in winter.

    Over time, Ruth’s love of cheese evolved from a side project into starting her own dairy, and her extraordinary passion for cheese making continues to shine through in all their amazing cheeses. Originally, Monforte sourced milk from small Mennonite and Amish sheep farms, but over time and as the dairy industry shifted, they have expanded to also produce cheese from goat, water buffalo and cow’s milk.
