The Back Forty farm is home to the dairy, cheese shop, and riverside bistro and is located in Mississippi Station, Ontario, an hour west of Ottawa. The shop offers a full selection of our raw-sheep’s milk cheeses, as well as range of locally made products including cured meats, honey, maple syrup, chocolate, coffee beans, preserves, and Back Forty’s own farm raised grass-fed organic lamb, Highland Beef, and whey-fed pork.
The outdoor live fire kitchen and riverside bistro serves a seasonal farm-to-table menu, including wood-oven pizzas, salads, and tasting boards, and the licensed riverside patio features Ontario craft beer, cider, and wine. All the produce used in the menu is grown in Back Forty’s organic garden and the meats are all raised on farm, including organic chicken, lamb, Highbeef, and pork.
The Cheese Shop and Bistro is open every Friday and Saturday 11:30-7 from June 16th to Labour Day with a rotating seasonal farm-to-table menu. It’s casual outdoor dining riverside at picnic tables, muskoka chairs, and bar. No reservations.
