Local Cheese

Local Cheeses at Oryana

You can't beat great cheese, especially if it's local. Paired with fresh, organic fruit, just the right wine, and crispy crackers or fresh bread, it's the perfect snack, appetizer, or sandwich addition. We carry many local and Michigan-made cheeses so you can enjoy goodness from close to home. All cheese at Oryana is either organic or made from the milk of dairy animals not treated with antibiotics, growth stimulants or hormones.
