We’re up North in Thornloe, Ontario in the Thornloe Cheese store!
We took a road trip this weekend to deliver kombucha, meet the friendly folks at Thornloe Cheese, and fill our bin full of delicious goods.
Located in the New Liskeard area on Highway 11 North, Thornloe Cheese has a long history of making tasty products. For over 70 years, the factory has brought Northern Ontario and Quebec the best in high-quality artisan cheese using sustainable local milk from farms in the area. The business has seen a few change of hands over the years but is now proudly 100% farmer-owned and 100% Canadian.
With a wide range of products ranging from traditional mild cheddar, to fresh flavourful curds, and specialty cheeses, Thornloe Cheese has some mighty fine award-winning products to enjoy.
A cheese-lovers heaven, Thornloe Cheese is known from far and wide (side note, we were 4 hours away from home but while we were there, a Deep River local walked in to stock up on his favourite curds - small world!) for their exceptional cheeses, and have been making even bigger headlines as the first Canadian company to offer a new line of grass-fed butter and cheeses.
With Matt always on the lookout for local grass-fed butter, this is actually how we connected! Through social media, we expressed how we enjoyed each others products and just had to get together! We just love how these things happen organically; local businesses supporting other local businesses. Aside from kombucha, Thornloe Cheese also has a variety of other local products in store, adding to the authenticity and true sense of community of the business.
Thornloe Cheese continues to grow and expand but never looses sight of the original pride and vision of using high-quality ingredients and the same old-fashioned techniques from their early days to bring us the finest (most delicious) Canadian cheese. Visit www.thornloecheese.ca to learn more!
Blendz Smoothie Shop and Healthy Eatery has a new home!
Now located on Pembroke Street, Blendz has been busy moving into their newly renovated space in the heart of the Ottawa Valley. Exposed brick and high ceilings gave this space a massive facelift and we can't help but admire the new look at the latest restaurant in Pembroke.
*Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, October 20th from 11am until 5pm*
Whoever said vegan food was lacking in taste never tried anything at Blendz. This vegan eatery takes you all the way to Flavour Town (ya.. that's right.. Guy Fieri needs to eat here!) with a great selection of dairy-free, gluten-free, taste-FULL options including their signature smoothies, soup of the day, and fan-faves like rice wraps, and banana bread waffles.
Although we'll miss having Blendz as our neighbour in the plaza, we wish Dale and her team all the best in her new location (you can't keep us away, we've been there twice already!). We look forward to what's on the menu next and will see you on delivery day! Yesssssss, of course Blendz carries our booch!

You can find Laurentian Brew Kombucha in Toronto!
That’s right! We’ve teamed up with an amazing business, Stronghouse Health to have our brew available in the big city.
Sooooooo stoked about this! In two locations in downtown Toronto, Stronghouse is a nutrient-dense riot, providing fuel for pre and post-workouts, snacks on the run, and help to get you through that mid-day slump.
Taking her culinary background and passion for fitness into a new business avenue, Owner Beth Davis founded Stronghouse Health, a bar-style set-up for healthy snacks, smoothies and fitness supplements within an established fitness facility. With a focus on Canadian-made products and ingredients, the Stronghouse menu includes shakes, cold-pressed juice, fresh smoothies, protein balls, waffles, bars, tea, coffee, plus grab-and-go snacks and drinks from the fridge. For the fitness and muscle-building enthusiast, Stronghouse is your one-stop-shop for supplements to take your goals to the next level.
Currently in CRUNCH Fitness at 382 Yonge Street, and CrossFit YKV at 175 Avenue Road, Stronghouse welcomes you to stop in and have a bite or a sip. We couldn’t resist the Meet Your Matcha smoothie and took some delicious protein balls for the drive home; these are tried-and-true tasty and Laurentian Brew approved!
We live for these small business collaborations. Beth tried our brew while visiting another retail location and loved it so much, she contacted us to bring it in to her business. What a great organic connection to form a wonderful relationship with our FIRST TORONTO LOCATION! We can’t thank her enough for the opportunity.
