ORIGINAL HANDMADE ARTS & CRAFTS
Back Forty Artisan and Cheese
Visiting at : 1406 Gulley Rd,
Founded in 2000, Back Forty is a farm located in the hamlet of Mississippi Station Ontario where cheesemaker Jeff Fenwick hand crafts artisanal cheeses of the highest quality. Back Forty’s original raw ewe milk cheeses have grown into a local favorite and have become loved and trusted by many of the provinces top chefs and cheese lovers alike.
Using traditional old world methods and 100% natural unpasteurized sheep’s milk, each cheese is made by hand in very small batches and then carefully tended to and aged from two to nine months. In our petite fromagerie we produce four delectable cheeses: Flower Station, Madawaska, Bonnechere and our award winning Highland Blue.
With the help of our loyal customers and strong community support, Back Forty’s artisan cheeses have been fortunate to earn numerous accolades and have been featured in a host of newspaper and magazine articles as well as radio and television programs.
The Jenna Rose textile studio was founded by designer Jenna Fenwick in 2006. Located in the countryside of eastern Ontario, she creates her hand printed and naturally dyed textiles using her surroundings and daily life as inspiration. Jenna draws each illustration and pattern by hand and screen prints the textiles in small runs using water based pigments on natural materials including organic cotton, linen, and hemp.
Food and drinks will be served on the patio during the studio tour.
