“The Hoekert family does a lot of smiling and says cheese these days.
Not just any cheese, mind you. Artisanal, handcrafted fromage. Unique stuff.
Back in November, the Hoekerts opened Chanoki Cheese on their farm on the outskirts of Hagersville. There they make Gouda. Just Gouda. And not from the traditional cow’s milk like back in the Netherlands, but from goat milk.
Chanoki Cheese is the culmination of a dream that stretches over the last four years. That was when they gave up their business of raising goats and selling the milk.”
