Browns Cheese

Agriculture, fishing, forestry

Launched in 1979, Brown’s Cheese still follows the path David and Sue took years ago - crafting natural cheeses using the utmost care and passion for cheese. Based in Limuru, we produce seventeen different varieties of cheese using milk from over 3,000 small hold farmers in the area as well as milk from our own small herd. Brown's natural cheeses are made using traditional methods and ingredients; no colorings, coatings, or additives are used. All our cheeses are suitable for vegetarians. Brown’s Cheese has earned worldwide recognition, recently winning seven awards at the South Africa Dairy Championships as well as an award at the 2002 Nantwich Cheese show in the U.K.
