Simonsberg Cheese

Stellenbosch | Trailblazing this country’s cheese scene for many decades, we’ve been part of the journey that’s transformed South Africa into a nation of cheese lovers. Today it’s hard to believe that there was a time when speciality cheeses were virtually unheard of here. Feta was first made here as recently as 1974, and white rind cheeses such as camembert and brie were still viewed as ‘exotic’ back in the 1980s. Our cheese is made in Stellenbosch and the small country towns of Bonnievale and Ladismith. Many cows have been milked since the very first Jersey herd made its way here back in 1892, many full moons made of cheese have come and gone. But after all this time the rich, creaminess of the milk continues to inspire our cheese makers.
