Agri-Expo in partnership with the Western Cape Department of Agriculture annually sponsors a number of small cheesemakers at the #SACheeseFest to showcase their hand-crafted products and treat your taste buds. We encourage you to join our #SupportSmallCheesemakers campaign and create some much-needed market exposure for our #agripreneurs. Show your support – #share their stories on social media, #comment to let them know we are #strongertogether, and most importantly #buySAcheese!

The (colourful!) Kingwill Cheese story:

Teddy & Desireé Kingwill started making cheese in 2000.  At first, on small scale, starting in the kitchen, trying out all the recipes until the perfect one was found.  They ended up building a small cheese factory, to keep up with the demand. Today, their son Ian and his wife Zelda are in charge of this growing business. They are proud to say that they are making 18 cheddars with different herbs and spices and 2 Goudas. A flavour for every taste – and their Matured Cheddars are of extremely good quality and great taste.

 Meet the team:

  • Milking team: Learnmore Moyo, Abraham Moyo, Justin Sibanda
