Klein River Cheese crafts 4 styles and 11 types of exceptional artisan South African cheese. The Klein River Cheese Farmstead has been producing cheese for over 25 years with a team of highly experienced and dedicated cheesemakers. Situated near Stanford, an art and foodie heritage village surrounded by a lazy, meandering river, lush forest and the voluptuous Klein River Mountains, the farmstead produces cheese year-round. As of March 2015, the farm has also been home to the Baleta family, who are committed to working and living in harmony with the environment, the community, and the farm itself.

Klein River Cheese Farmstead is a celebration of cheese, picnics and family. Their purpose is to unleash the inner artisan in all of us. They do not just create cheese and picnics, but inspire chefs and romantics, nature lovers and healthy, family-centred ambassadors. Simply put, there is more to Klein River Cheese Farmstead than just cheese. Their cheese is a vehicle to join the artisan movement; it is not only about their products, it’s about their culture. Klein River Cheese is an award winning producer, who was named among the winners at the World Cheese Awards 2021, which were held in Oviedo, Spain on 3 November 2021. The Klein River Gruberg Mature collected a gold medal and best South African cheese on show. Klein River Cheese also scooped coveted silver medals for its Gruberg Vintage, Raclette and Overberg.
