The Original owner of the farm, Arie Gort came from a long line of cheese makers on his mother’s side and has brought from the Netherlands, the renowned Dutch tradition of making Cheese. The farm began in 1983.
Gary and Kathy Wikkerink bought the farm in 2007 and continue to produce the quality products that have made Gort’s so popular with its loyal customers. Along with their six children, Gary and Kathy moved from Agassiz, BC where they farmed for 20 years.
