Meet Fraser Valley’s newest artisan cheese processing facility: Golden Ears Cheesecrafters. Run by two sisters, Jenna and Emma, who produce a variety of artisan cheeses, fresh cheddar curds, and cultured butter. All products are hand-crafted beginning with 100% Canadian quality milk, from grass-fed Jersey cows free of hormones and antibiotics, taken from their Uncle’s neighbouring dairy farm.
Jenna and Emma grew up with farming in their roots. After combining their heritage, their Uncle’s neighbouring dairy, their continued passion for farming, and their busy location, Golden Ears Cheesecrafters was founded. Straight from the sisters themselves: “We’re building a sustainable future for our family farm in this community and bringing people back to food basics, they can literally watch their cheese being made. That experience is something people value.”
Jenna quickly fell in love with the intricacies of the cheese-making process and the physical demands of the work involved, whereas Emma runs the front end of Golden Ears Cheesecrafters.
