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.

The La Petite France story:

Preston Farm Dairy provided the milk for the first La Petite France Camembert made by a cheesemaker who learnt his trade in France and required the correct milk. In 2013, Grant Warren bought the cheese business and moved it onto the farm. The range of products has expanded to include a wide variety of cheeses and fresh dairy products. We pride ourselves on having a happy and loyal staff as well as producing quality, grain-free products in an ethical, natural and sustainable manner.
