Located in Campbellford, Empire cheese is made in traditional, open-style vats, all natural, with no added preservatives. Empire cheese is owned by local dairy farmers who hold an election each year to vote for a Board of Directors to run the factory. 

The first Empire Cheese Factory was built in the late 1870s, the second cheese factory was built just to the east of the present factory. In the fall of 1952 the Kimberley Cheese Factory burned and in 1953 Empire and Kimberley amalgamated forming the current Empire Cheese & Butter Co-op.
