Pine River Cheese, a co-op that’s been active for decades, is closing. It’s regrettable that yet another locally owned and operated business closes its doors, and a rural community loses jobs.
Faye first took me there on a day when I had a plane to catch and was nervously watching the clock (I caught my plane.) They make (er, made) good cheese. Very good cheese.
I was recently in the neighbourhood and stocked up.
We will freeze what we can’t use soon. When we thaw and eat that cheese Faye and I will look at one another, nod, and perhaps talk about how another wonderful bit of rural Ontario is gone.
