The company, which started as a sheep-milk Mediterranean-style cheese producer, is based at one manufacturing facility located in St. Marys, in southwest Ontario. Shepherd Gourmet manufactures, markets and distributes a variety of specialty cheeses such as Feta and Ricotta, sheep milk yogurt, as well as skyr.

It’s not just the yogurt produced by St. Marys’ own Shepherd Gourmet Dairy that’s drool-worthy. The feta cheese, ricotta and skyr also share great taste and a reassuringly short ingredients list. Recently, Stew Cardiff, Shepherd Gourmet’s president, satisfied my curiosity with a tour beyond the front lobby’s popular retail outlet. The Enterprise Drive facility opened in early 2009, after fire destroyed the original Tavistock location, which began operating in 2002.
