Bothwell Cheese

Bothwell Cheese is expanding its operations. The company recently announced plans to open its first standalone retail location in St. Boniface under the name Fromagerie Bothwell. The store, which will be located at 136 Provencher Boulevard, at the foot of the Provencher Bridge, will feature cheese, of course—blocks, slices, shredded cheese, fresh cheddar, and curds—but also other food items and locally made products.

The company anticipates a spring 2018 opening of the store, once interior and exterior renovations are complete.

To coincide with the announcement, Bothwell Cheese was out in St. Boniface over the February long weekend. The company’s cheese was featured in the first-ever cheese-carving competition at the Festival du Voyageur on Sunday, February 18. Six artists each carved 40-pound blocks of aged white cheddar.

The New Bothwell company, which began in 1936 as a coop of dairy farmers looking for a use for their extra milk, now produces more than 15,000 kilograms of cheese daily and has won countless international awards.
