Armadale Farm Dairy Products
Hetty & Ian Smythe
AT FREDERICTON BOYCE MARKET SINCE 2006
Hetty Smythe’s family immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands in 1986. Her father, a fifth-generation cheese-maker, began making cheese in the basement for their family. Before they knew it, people started coming to their front door to get Gouda, a cheese not otherwise available in the area at the time. A few years later, her parents decided to sell dairy products full-time.
Nowadays, Hetty runs the cheese plant with her husband while her brother runs the dairy farm. As soon as the cows are milked, they begin the cheese-making process to ensure the highest quality. They prepare other products, such as buttermilk and cheese curds, fresh every week.
Be sure to stop by and support this Dutch family tradition!
