Made by Fromagerie F.X. Pichet
This is one of the rare cheese dairies that makes unpasteurized cheeses that are certified organic by Québec Vrai. The cheeses are made using milk from their own farm cows, which is why the term "farm cheese" is used. The aging process is carried out in Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade, where methods of ripening are performed according to artisanal cheese making traditions.

Most Canadian Fondue cheeses are packaged and bear a “best before” date, so check that date and keep the package refrigerated. An unopened fondue cheese will keep in the refrigerator for several months. If opened, it will keep for 1 week to 10 days. Store fondue cheeses in their original packaging, or if opened rewrap in plastic wrap to provide the tightest seal to protect from moisture, odours and possibly mould in the fridge. (For optimum freshness and flavour, if not using within 2 weeks, freeze fondue package until ready to use or up to 3 months.)
Most cheeses can be frozen, but it is important to keep in mind that freezing can affect texture and character. This is why thawed cheeses are best reserved for use in cooking. Neither the taste nor texture of meals cooked with previously frozen cheeses will be affected. You can freeze fondue cheeses in their original packaging for up to three months! Before using, it is important to allow cheese to thaw slowly in the refrigerator, or in a bain marie, before proceeding with preparation.
