Here is the short list of five possible locations, three in Vancouver and two less than one hour from Vancouver. Click on any image for a larger view.


UBC Botanical Garden in Vancouver.

There is no change in plans to continue the original Great Canadian Cheese Festival in Picton, Prince Edward County, Bay of Quinte Region. Dates for 2014 are June 7-8.

  1. I’m trying to properly identify a cheese that is available in BC and that sounds like: Rathrover cheese.
    What is the exact name of the cheese? Type of cheese? Who makes it? Where?
    Thank you

    1. Rathtrevor is made by Little Qualicum Cheeseworks in Parksville on Vancouver Island. Made with the unpasteurized milk from their own mixed herd of Ayrshire, Brown and Canadienne cows, this Alpine-style cheese is nutty, sweet and delicious. Great on its own with a glass of wine, but also a fantastic melter.
