Our History

In 2002, the Kasselman family began crafting and curing traditional hard cheeses in Klein Soebattersvlakte, Stilbaai, the well known holiday destination in the Southern Cape.

The Kasselman family was known for their Jersey Stud that Johannes Kasselman started in 1980 , registered as Kasselshoop (the hope of a Kasselman).

Stilbaai was a natural home for the Kasselshoop cheese factory, not only for its rich limestone and fynbos vegetation, but also for the high quality, rich and creamy milk supplied by the small-herd farmers in the area. Natural farming practices are used to establish and improve pastures and great effort goes into the controlling of milk quality to ensure that only the best raw materials are used in our cheeses. The Jersey cows are exclusively raised on pasture and only get hay and minerals as supplements.

In 2009 Rian Kasselman recognized the opportunity to craft speciality flavoured cheeses, with the result that Kasselshoop was nominated as Supplier of the year in 2011 for well known retailer.
