For over 80 years, the Bergerons have been producing high-quality cheese using milk supplied by local farmers. Although the cheese factory has been passed down through generations of Bergerons, one thing has stayed the same: the passion and care that goes into every bite.

Fromagerie Bergeron, founded in 1989, brings the Bergeron expertise into the future. Starting with the original Dutch recipe for Gouda, they developed a unique and distinctive “Bergeron’’ taste and quickly established themselves as the Canadian Gouda Masters.

Inspired by the success of the Bergeron Classique Gouda, the family took their innovation further. They created a cheese made with partially-skimmed milk, a cumin-flavoured cheese, a naturally-smoked cheese and even a washed-rind cheese, the acclaimed Fin Renard.

Today, the fourth generation of Bergeron’s are continuing the legacy of Fromagerie Bergeron, with innovative recipes like Le Louis Cyr Cheese Tart.

Fromagerie Bergeron’s Louis Cyr cheese is made with milk that comes from cows fed a diet consisting mostly of dry hay. The Bergerons’ place immense care in selecting farms that meet these criteria specifically, inspired by traditional European cheesemaking methods. Since cheese is made mostly of milk, the taste of the milk is reflected in the final product. This award-winning cheese is the perfect complement to your holiday dinner, and this recipe is sure to impress even the pickiest of eaters. Invite the Bergerons over for the holidays!
