Mountainoak Cheese – Quark Yogurt Sponsored by Scotiabank

Similar in texture to a Greek yogurt, this smooth product can be easily used in baking, topped with fresh fruit or jam, or enjoyed by itself. No preservatives, no added sugar, no carrageenan, no food dyes; just pasteurized whole milk, bacterial culture and rennet. Quark is a great source of protein, calcium, and a variety of vitamins and minerals. We offer flavoured quark as well, mixing in locally produced maple syrup and fruit. We use just enough to give you that sweet flavour you crave, while still using less than half the sugar that you find in flavoured Greek yogurt from the grocery store.

Adam and Hannie’s passion to make cheese is blooming once more. With the encouragement of family, friends and neighbours, they have embarked on a new cheesemaking venture. Mountainoak Cheese is a modern, state-of-the-art processing plant that allows the van Bergeijks to continue the tradition of great-tasting, high-quality, Gouda-style cheeses made with high-quality, fresh milk from their own dairy cows. Oh, and why “Mountainoak” you ask? There is no particular abundance of oaks on the farm, and certainly there are no mountains in Wilmot Township. A literal, English translation of the Dutch family name, “Van Bergeijk”, would be “from the mountain oak”.
