South Africa Through the Lens of Patrick McKenna

South Africa Through the Lens of Patrick McKenna

For our summer 2012 feature story on the rise of South African cheesemakers, our writer, Jim Clarke, paid visits to four different cheesemakers and one cheese shop! The talented Patrick McKenna documented the entire trip with his camera, and there were so many great shots that we couldn’t fit them all in the magazine. Instead, we’re bringing them to you right here. Get to know Fairview Wine and Cheese, Buffalo Ridge Cheese, Healey’s Cheese, and Dalewood Fromage through these images. Also included is a glimpse of Constantia Cheesery, a retail store that sells cheeses from all over Africa. Enjoy!
