All about Fromagerie PEI
Our journey officially began when we first started making Squeak-ies Cheese Curds - all the way back in 2016!
Mathieu took it upon himself to properly learn the ropes. In 2007 he completed his first cheese making course. Then in 2009, Mathieu earned a scholarship to study in Paris France for five months where he learned and perfected traditional art of cheese making.
This gave him the foundation (and courage) to move forward. Upon returning home, he knew he needed help to build a proper business, so he reached out to his neighbour Albert, a celebrated musician and storyteller of the famous Acadian band Barachois and the duo Chuck & Albert.
After years showcasing Island Culture on an international stage, Albert is a devoted family man who spends his time perfecting his handmade sailboat and most recently his new craft: cheese making.
Having firm roots in Agriculture and Entrepreneurship and obtaining a degree in Farm Business Management, Mathieu decided to train Albert to become his Cheesemaker so that he could then focus on growing the business. He is the fourth generation of the dairy farm family and a proud supporter of the 4-H movement.
