The Old School Cheesery Ltd.

Handcrafting Nature’s Bounty into Quality Artisan Cheese



The Old School Cheesery is a family owned and operated cheese producer located just south of Vermilion on Township Road 482 West.

Owner, Patrick Dupuis, had dreamed of owning his own business for many years and in September of 2016, he realized his dream with the opening of the cheesery – housed in a barn and Quonset which was renovated and converted into the housing for the cheesery business.

Together with daughter, Valerie, Patrick works to make the artisan cheese products – which range from the rave-reviewed curds, to cheddar blocks, to snack and cheese packs, to newly introduced brie, chevre, and feta, and two types of jellies to complement the cheeses – as well as operating the store-front, leading tours of the cheesery, attending events, and selling at various local markets.

The Old School Cheesery is proving to be a true gem of the region; people can’t get enough. Check out a few recent rave reviews:

“Their cheese is amazing! Phenomenal flavours! What a great local business to have in our community.”

“The best cheese curds in Western Canada. The garlic and the smoked blocks of cheddar are amazing to cook with!”

“What an amazing little gem of a find. Patrick was wonderful and so friendly. And the cheese is to die for. I will absolutely be back.”
